Welcome to SHALL WE KNIT?

We are a full service local yarn shop in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. We offer a wide variety of quality yarns and workshops to help you make something wonderful!

"The local yarn shop is a community. It is human connection over a common passion. Knitting is wonderful, but knitting in isolation is less of a joy. We need local yarn shops to provide a gathering place, a place for inspiration, for instruction, for connection with others like us. THAT is why the atmosphere and attitude of a shop matters almost as much as the inventory. Everyone must feel welcome and comfortable, regardless of age, size, or skill level."

SHALL WE KNIT? strives to maintain a sense of community for the knitters of the Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph and Stratford areas.

Saturday April 21st is Local Yarn Store Day!  We're proud to be your LYS, and we'd like to celebrate by giving away a $50 shop gift card.

From today until 4pm EST on April 21st. We'd love if you shared a picture of one or more (max 3 but only 1 at a time) of your favourite creations (knit, crochet, weaving, needle felting, spinning etc.) using supplies from Shall We Knit.

For every photo you share, on each platform, you'll be entered into the draw. You can share by tagging us (@shallweknit) and using the hashtag #SWKLYSDay on Instagram or Twitter or replying to our contest post on Facebook, or sending us a message through email! Don't forget to give details like pattern and yarn/fiber.

If you don't have a chance to send or tag a picture, come in to the store on April 21st with a favourite piece, and we'll snap a picture for you and enter you into the draw.

Any pictures you share with us, we may share and re-post with our followers to show off your excellent creations.

And how about a Saturday Knit & Chat? Because really the best thing about a LYS is the community. So all day Saturday April 21st the classroom on the 2nd floor will be open for a drop in Knit & Chat.
