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!

What just happened???  We had Labor Day and the Yarn Crawl followed by a few Trick-or-Treaters, and now, seemingly without any warning, it’s winter!  Or maybe I just think it’s winter because it’s cold and the holidays are right around the corner.  Did you see this coming?  I guess I have to keep a better eye on the calendar.

I should have realized it’s close because we got the last of our fall and winter yarns in.  Silk and Merino in The Diana Collection from Yarns Northwest is a lovely 70% Merino 30% Silk blend that knits at 5 stitches to one inch on a #7.  It has a wonderful hand and drape and all of the warm sheen you expect from this blend.  It’s a soft twist so it will fell beautiful on your skin in a cozy little scarf.

20171110_165335Now we’re focusing on gifts from and for knitters and crocheters.  We have a great new book from Cascade – 60 Quick Knits.  It’s hats, scarves and mittens that can be done in no time.  Check our Facebook page for a super easy and fast cowl you can make with one skein of Bamboo Bloom.  We have a similar cowl done in a variegated yarn that just as quick and easy.  It should be in the store soon.  We have many, many other quick and easy ideas, but with one page newsletter, I can’t put them all in.

20171110_164957Our class this month and next is a small or tiny (your choice) Christmas stocking.  The knitting is super fast and the embellishments are up to you.  In the pictures, mine may be done, or I may add more goodies.  You’ll need one month of classes at our usual times and the pattern.  As with all our classes, your yarn must be purchased in the store.  The materials fee of $20 will cover all the embellishments you could want along with their patterns and lots of little bits to add on.  This is a really fun project, and you can certainly do a few in time for Christmas.  Or how about a birthday stocking with a gift card in it?

We have a great variety of gifts for knitters, crocheters, and needlepointers.  Let us know what you’d like so when your family members come in we can point them in the right direction.  If they don’t want to come in they can call and buy a gift certificate by phone.

Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes while Skip was in the hospital.  He’s home and doing very well.  John, Frenda, and Renee did a magnificent job – I certainly couldn’t manage without them.  I also want to thank you all for your patience while I was playing nurse.  I always say that I have the most wonderful customers in the world.  You are all wonderful, and I really appreciate you.

This month Sit & Stitch is Friday, November 17th from 6 – 11 pmMake your reservations by November 15th if you’re coming.

MARK YOUR CALENDAR – OUR HOLIDAY SALE STARTS THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING!!!  We need to move it so we don’t have to count it during inventory.  It’s always good discounts!  Thank a Veteran today, think warm, have a nice bowl of soup and keep your needles moving!
