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.
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.
Back to school?!? Did I really hear that on the news?? Already?? That must have been a bad dream because I know it can’t be that late in the year already, right?
Thank you all for making our 17th Birthday a wonderful celebration. We ate entirely too much cake and had so much fun, I almost can’t wait for next year’s party. However, the next big thing is our 10th annual CHARLOTTE AREA YARN CRAWL! Mark your calendar for September 21 – 29. You can get all the information at the Yarn Crawl’s website or FaceBook page. All of our new fall and winter yarns should be in by then and yes we’ll have our usual sale. All the details will be in next month’s newsletter.
For right now, we have more new yarns. Wonderland Yarns has new colors in their Cheshire Cat 6 packs, available in gradient and “works together” colors. Those are colors that aren’t tones of the same color but work together well. My favorite is called Opposite of Boredom. I’m doing a Return scarf in it and I absolutely love it! There won’t be anything I can’t wear it with and that’s my favorite scarf pattern to knit and wear so I’m very happy. They are now packing their mini skeins in 8 and 12 packs, too. We have an 8 pack of rainbow colors that I plan to knit next. This is their 100% superwash Merino spun and hand dyed in this country. Last, but far from least, we also have their July birthstone in their Year of Color program. July is ruby and this is a fantastic ruby variegated yarn, even if you weren’t born in July, you’ll love it.
We also have some darling baby kits from Aalta Yarn. The baby blanket pattern is their Waves of Joy in two shades. It’s a variation of an old shale pattern. The wonderful part is that each kit comes with matching Baby Snoozies! These are the wonderful slippers we sell for adults that are lined with soft fleece and feel so good. Any baby will love these.
For the older girl or your best friend, we have little boxes of Fairy Scarves. These are simple little scarves that you can knit up in a few hours, and then sew flowers all over. They come with a card and a lovely note explaining how the fairies catch and hold dreams and spin them into yarns for sweet dreams and beautiful thoughts. They are lovely to give as a gift in the kit form and knit and give as a scarf with the enclosed card.
We’re late this month so you missed Knitted Knockers, but you can stop in any time to catch up on those if you like. Sit and Stitch is the 17th, so you must let us know if you’re coming by the 15th. Till then, stay dry and cool and keep your needles moving.
