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.

 

JANUARY GREETINGS!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  We hope you had a wonderful holiday and you’re fully recovered by now.  Our Christmas and New Year were quiet (that’s due to adult kids and out-of-town grandchild), and in between, we counted like crazy.  Thank you all for buying so much so we didn’t have to count it during inventory.  We’re almost done with it and then we’ll be restocking everything.  Since snow is forecast for this week, I’ve been seeing yarn reps to order spring and summer yarns.  It’s hard to think about those right now, but we’ll need them soon.

At the beginning of this new year, I want to thank all of you for helping make the past year a good one for us.  Few retail stores can say they are truly happy to see all of their customers walk in.  I’m very lucky to be one of them.  I’m even luckier to have the kind of customers who answer requests for help with endless amounts of it.  I can’t tell you how many times you’ve filled our Odd Sock Box with donations for homeless people.  The response for Knitted Knockers has been overwhelming.  There are many breast cancer survivors who think you’re wonderful and they are right.  We always appreciate every donation to Brian’s Fund for children with KTS.  Thank you all for being such great friends.

We have had lots of new colors of Titus come in from baa ram ewe.  This is a sport weight blend of 50% Wensleydale Longwool, 20% Bluefaced Leicester, and 30% alpaca – all British.  It’s lovely to work with and blooms and softens the first time you wash it.

Our newest yarn is Dona, a DK weight extra fine Merino from Universal Yarn.  It’s machine wash and is super-cuddly soft.  It will make wonderful baby clothes and very nice garments for the kids and adults in the family.

We have several new yarns that came in this fall that had large back orders of colors.  We’re happy to report that they have all come in now.  Four of them are DK weight.  Adore from Universal Yarn is 55% Merino and 45% Acrylic.  It’s soft and goes into the washer and dry.  We have 34 colors for you to choose from.  Anchor Bay is another machine wash and dry yarn from Cascade Yarn.  It’s 50% Merino and 50% cotton.  It has a beautiful soft sheen and comes in classic colors.  The next DK yarn is also from CascadeLongwood Sport is our favorite Longwood in a lighter weight.  It also goes in the washer and dryer.  Since it’s 100% extrafine Merino, it’s a real joy to knit, crochet, and wear in any garment.  The Stripe variety has long strips in wonderful colors that work well in anything you make.  The final DK yarn is Blackfaced Leicester DK Prints.  It’s from West Yorkshire Spinners and has a wonderful hand.  It is hand wash, and is certainly worth it.

Uptown Bulky Amplify from Universal Yarn is a beautiful acrylic with crazy color changes.  The nice thing is that you just knit or crochet and the yarn does all the work for you!  It knits at 2 ½ stitches per inch on a #13 needle, so you’ll be finished in no time at all.  It goes in the washer and dryer beautifully.

Knitted Knocker Night is January 13, and Sit & Stitch is January 20.  You’ll need to make your reservations by Wednesday January 18th  Keep your needles moving!

Betsy
