Your Charlotte area source for the best in knitting, crocheting, and needlepoint supplies, accessories, & instruction. We have a wide variety of yarns, needles, threads, books, patterns, bags, and gadgets.

DCF 1.0

Knit One, Stitch Too was opened in July 2001 by Betsy Weber to offer high quality supplies, accessories, and instruction to those interested in knitting, needlepointing, crocheting, and other needlearts. Over the years we have grown into a community of lively-minded needleartists of all ages, experience levels, and backgrounds who enjoy sharing our love of needle work. You’re always welcome to come in and see what’s new, get help with your project, or just sit and relax with your needles for a while. We love having visitors!

We are a full service store so we also offer finishing of knitted, crocheted, and needlepoint items, or we will work the entire item for you. Our Christmas deadline for finishing is October 1 every year. We repair hand made items, and are always happy to provide estimates on repairs or teach you how to make repairs yourself.

 

NOVEMBER GREETINGS!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  We did make our goal of Knitted Knockers for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Many of the knockers you made are already being used by women since we sent a good number of them to Levine Cancer Institute a couple of weeks ago.  I hope you all understand that a few dollars and a few hours of your time is making a huge difference in the life of a woman you’ll probably never meet, but who thinks you are an angel.  We all can change the world for the better with a small action.  We are continuing to knit our knockers on the second Friday of the month from 3 pm to 9 pm.  You can join us to knit and crochet knockers, get any help you need with them, and just hang out and have fun.

What’s new?  The boxes have been coming as usual.  Cascade’s 60 Quick Cotton Knits is in.  I ordered plenty so all of you who are waiting for it can pick one up.  We have Swirlettes and wooden yarn bowls back in stock from our favorite wood worker in Alabama.  Supplies of these are limited, so if you want to see them, you better come in soon.  We also have some cute yarn bowls with happy sheep on them if that suits your mood better.  I found beautiful wool baskets made in America to hold all your knitting supplies.  They are super sturdy and beautiful.  Again the supplies of these are limited.

And if that’s not enough gadgets and accessories, we have 4 sizes of table caddies for all of your crafting bits and pieces to keep them close by.  New weaving sticks have arrived from Clover.  These are delightful!  Fun for you or great for kids.  You can make bookmarks, belts, hat bands – anything you can imagine with a bit of yarn, and it is EASY and QUICK to learn.  And it’s a good way to use up bits of left over yarn of any type.  Last, but far from least, we have SNOOZIES!  If you aren’t familiar with these wonderful slippers from Nordic Knits, they are soft and cuddly with non-skid soles and are completely machine washable and dryable.  We have some that look like fair isle, but the best ones have a sheep on one toe and a sweater on the other toe!  In other words, we have a wonderful assortment of great gifts for any knitter or crocheter, including yourself!

There’s only one new yarn in but is it ever a yarn!  Mondo from Cascade is for those of you who like #50 needles or want to try arm knitting.  It’s 50% superfine alpaca and 50% wool and knits at ¾ to 1 stitch per inch.  It feels luscious and you can arm knit a cowl in less than an hour.  The colors are lovely, too.

I want to remind you that the Addi Turbo Rocket Sale goes on until Novenber 15th.  Buy 3 of their Turbo Rockets between June 15 and November 15, 2016 inside a North American LYS, and they will send you a free one in your choice of size and length.  You’ll need to send them your receipts for the purchases.  If you bought them here and don’t have those receipts, we can print duplicates for you.  This is a really great deal if you like Addi Turbo Rockets.

Make your reservations by the 16th for Sit and Stitch on November 18.  Knitted Knocker Night is November 11.  You don’t need reservations for that and there’s no charge.  Just come in any time between 3 pm and 9 pm.

Keep your needles moving.

 Betsy
