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.
Do you remember I told you last month that we had one more order of yarn coming in for the summer? It’s here! We have a great selection of Snuggly from Sirdar. We all know this yarn for babies since it’s a machine wash and dry nylon/acrylic blend, but did you know that they have great child and adult colors, and Fair Isle effect patterns in colors for everyone? Just like North Shore from Cascade and Tapestry from Universal, you just knit with one yarn and you get a Fair Isle pattern.
Skacel has sent us a new yarn called Abracadabra. It’s a DK Merino/synthetic blend that changes colors when exposed to the sun! We have two colors, and both start out white, and then one changes to bright pink and the other changes to bright purple. It’s so much fun! Can you imagine knitting something for a toddler and sending her out in the sun? Or how about a stripped scarf or headband for yourself that will mystify your friends?
We’ve had a large order of knitting books on all subjects come in as well as more Top This hat kits. And for you needlepointers, our Lowery floor stands are here.
We have a completed Knit, Swirl sweater! And we have more Knit, Swirl! books in stock. Check our community page on Facebook for a picture. We’ve reactivated it so we can put updates there as often as we like. I also finished a wonderful cowl out of Cozette. It takes one skein, works in plain stockinette stitch, so the edges are finished by the normal roll of the stitch. It’s soft and light and lovely to wear any time of year. That’s an easy and lovely gift for under $10.
The really big news at the moment is our Anniversary Sale. ON JULY 2nd WE WILL BE 14 YEARS OLD!!! Can you believe that? Some days I can’t either. We always have a sale for our birthday and this year is no exception. We will start on June 29th and run through July 4th. We will be open normal hours on the 4th. Everything in the store will be at least 14% off, and we’ll have an additional special every day that will change from day to day. We’ll have our usual fun, and there certainly will be birthday cake on the July 2nd with plenty for everyone.
Moonlight Madness is 19th this month. You can count on a good dinner and a great dessert and lots of friendly knitting or stitching. Remember to make your reservations by the 17th if you plan to attend.
Keep your needles moving!
