Craft Studio and Yarn Shop owner Lesly Adams knits while sitting outside the shop at 634 Main Street in downtown Grand Junction. The shop, which opened in January, has helped fill a void in the community following the closing of Tangle nearly a year ago.

New downtown retailer more than a yarn shop — it's a gathering spot for fiber artists

A recent Knit Night at The Craft Studio and Yarn Shop was abuzz with laughter and conversation, where a dozen or so women gathered to knit or crochet various projects ranging from dishcloths to sweaters.

Knitter Ariel Oaks patiently helped a newcomer pick up stitches that she had ripped out to repair a mistake on a scarf she was making. Becky Stoddart knits a dishcloth next to Amy Gibbs, who was working on a shawl. Heather Taylor tried out a new technique using a French knitter tool to create an I-cord to decorate a hat she had knitted.
