Had lunch with BFF B after a meeting in Indy last week. Was not in the mood to drive home, quite yet, so I asked if there was a LYS in the area. Out comes the trusty Google Maps, and we found Mass Ave Knit Shop about 10 minutes away.
Contrary to the name, Mass Ave Knit Shop is not located on Mass Ave – though, I gather that the store first opened in that general location. The current location is on Virgina Ave in the Fountain Square district of Indianapolis.
Lovely, spacious, store, with plenty of room for browsing, tables for knitting, and a classroom area off to the side. The yarn is organized by size and type, so it’s easy to find what you are looking for. The staff is friendly and helpful, and has a good understanding of the inventory. The yarns are good quality, and include both specialty yarns and Cascade yarns.
I picked up a few skeins – a turquoise silk and coordinating novelty yarn, and some dark purple and black sock yarn which might become stockings.
B and I perused for an hour and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Definitely, worth the visit.
