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.

 

MAY GREETINGS!

THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!!  THANK YOU!!!  If you haven’t heard, we were just voted Best Knitting Classes in Charlotte in Elevate Lifestyle’s 11th annual poll.  This is decided by the people, and we are truly thankful for all of you who voted for us.  Frenda, Renee and I think our classes are great, and since most of them are usually well attended, we thought you all must enjoy them.  It’s wonderful to have your vote of confidence.  You can check out all the other winners at www.elevatelifestyle.com.  We’re under Life Style.

If you come in during the next couple of days, you’ll have to squeeze by the boxes.  We got deliveries from 5 companies in the past two days and we’re expecting more next week.  Great Adirondacks is sending us some of their gorgeous hand-dyed silk, cotton and bamboo blends – perfect for summer accessories.  We’re also getting our first delivery of Manos Del Uruguay’s wonderful yarn.  You convinced us to add these lovely yarns to our inventory, and you know we always do our best to keep you happy.

Plymouth has a new yarn, Hot Cakes is the latest version of our favorite Encore Worsted.  It comes in a 400 yard cake and it’s a gradient!  You’ll love everything you can do with it.

Universal sent us great new colors of Major.  This chunky works well for everything, especially prayer shawls and quick blankets for the entire family.  Radiant Cotton is a DK  100% Egyptian cotton with a soft sheen.  Yashi is a raffia ribbon for knitting and crocheting baskets, bowls and fun accessories – think bags, hats, and belts.  Yashi Iro is it’s variegated sister.  They mix well together.

Sirdar’s boxes are filled with lots of new yarns.  A new baby yarn, Pattercake is a deliciously soft gradient yarn that comes with a baby blanket pattern and works up beautifully.  Summer Linen is a DK linen blend that’s soft and makes great summer garments.  Sublime Eden is another DK gradient.  It’s soft colors have an almost rustic look and it comes with a scarf pattern, but it would work well for anything you’d want to wear.  Baby Blossom DK and Baby Blossom Chunky are here in the new boy colors!  It’s the same stripes as the girl colors but instead of flowers, you’ll get squiggles when you work it up.  You have your choice of blues, browns, grays, and greens for your boys.  We have some new colors of Tahiti.  This cotton/poly fingering blend is one of my favorite yarns for light weight accessories.  It’s a soft gradient with long color sections, and it knits and blocks beautifully.  The last yarns are delightful kits.  Hug This is a soft and cuddly animal with matching yarn and a baby blanket pattern.  You could make the blanket and give it as a gift with the toy, or give the kit to an expectant mom who knits or crochets (or the new baby’s grandmom).

Last, but certainly not least, we have a huge box of gadgets – needles and crochet hooks of every description, magnifiers, stitch markers, needlepoint canvas, blocking wires, craft lights, highlight tape, stretcher bars, and more.

I’m out of room so mark your calendar and keep your needles moving!  Knitted Knockers is the 4th this month, and Sit & Stitch is the 18th.  Make your reservations by the 16th.

Betsy
