Welcome to Knit One, Stitch Too!

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.

 

OCTOBER GREETINGS!

Happy Fall, Ya’ll.  It’s a good one so far – beautiful weather, a great Yarn Crawl, & the last of the new yarns are here.  We are ready to curl up by the fire, put out the cider and donuts, and turn these lovely yarns into items to keep us warm and happy through the winter.

What’s new?  Too much to cover in one newsletter and keep to my one-page limit.  We will be featuring these new yarns on Facebook, so check there for pictures and details.  But just briefly, there are new colors of Plymouth’s Encore in all gauges, and stunning new colors of their Reserve Fingering, a superwash fine merino wool, cashmere and nylon blend.  You’ll love socks, scarves, or anything made with this.  Their Incan Spice and Cuzco Cashmere yarns are blends that make the most of merino, cashmere, mulberry silk, baby alpaca, and yak.  They come singly or in kits for wonderful accessories.

The greatest new toy (that should read “necessity”) we have are our knitters charm bracelets from our friends at Addi.  The charms are all stitch markers and you can customize them to fit your taste.  A great piece of jewelry that’s also useful with your stitch markers always at hand!  We are talking a great gift for yourself or a knitting friend.

HiKoo has two new baby alpaca yarns you’ll love.  Oh! is a chunky chainette, and Concentric is a worsted weight gradient in gorgeous shades.  Zitron, another Skacel yarn, has Yak.  It’s a fingering weight blend of extra fine merino and yak.  At 16 microns, it’s super soft.

Lots of new colors of Major have arrived from Universal.  This is that soft, bulky acrylic yarn that does almost anything with a couple of skeins.  It’s machine wash and dry and very quick to knit on #10 needles.  We also have new colors of Bamboo Bloom.  This thick and thin yarn does beautiful accessories and garments with very little work on your part.

Crock-O-Dye from Knit One Crochet Too has beautiful new variegated colorways.  It’s wool, nylon, and silk, does many garments well, and goes into the washing machine.  You’ll love it for all sorts of projects.

Cascade has sent us several new yarns.  LLamerino is a blend of baby llama and merino and is available in soft, natural colors.  Spuntaneous and Spuntaneous Effects are aran weight extrafine merino and are soft and lovely.  They’ll make wonderfully cozy sweaters and everything else.  Heritage Silk Paints now comes as Heritage Silk Peruvian Tones.  Same great machine wash and dry merino and silk blend, but in a different style variegation.  I can’t wait to knit with this one!  I’ve always loved the original.  And we have lots of new colors of Pacific, Pacific Color Wave, Longwood Sport, and Swaddler.

Watch for pictures of everything on Facebook!

We’re keeping our trunk show from Feza for the next two weeks along with some of the sale yarns from the Yarn Crawl.  Stop in and take advantage of these great deals while they last!

This month Knitted Knockers is Friday, October 6 from 3 – 9 pm, and Sit & Stitch is Friday, October 20 from 6 – 11 pm.  We plan a scarily delightful night.  Make your reservations by October 18th if you’re coming.

Enjoy your cider and donuts till then, and keep your needles moving!

Betsy
