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.

 

JANUARY GREETINGS!

We hope your Christmas was wonderful – full of family and friends, joy and good food and lots of great stitching.  Ours was quiet and lovely with lots of knitting.  It’s so nice to have a professional chef in the family at this time of year.  You know our dinner was fabulous!  Now back to work and the first newsletter of 2018.

We are open regular hours this week and our YEAR END SALE is going strong.  All yarn is 30 – 50% off, painted canvas and books are 40% off, patterns, bags, baskets, buttons and jewelry (including scarf pins and Addi charms) are 50% off.  If you buy it, we won’t have to count it for inventory.   We’ll be closed on Sunday, December 31 as usual.  We’ll also be closed on January 1, 2, and 3 so we can take inventory.  If you’re desperate for help with something, come on by and look suitably pitiful and we’ll let you in.  We’re always happy to help with any problem, of course, but on those days you may end up helping with the counting if you aren’t careful!  If you’re in a class scheduled for those days, you can come in and make it up any time you like.

This isn’t the time of year to get lots of new items, but we do have a couple.  Addi’s new FlexiFlips are here!  If you hate double points & find magic looping a problem, you’ll love these!  Unity and Unity Beyond are new from Universal.  Unity Beyond is the variegated form of Unity.  This is a wonderful blend of 36% wool, 28% cotton, 18% linen, and 18% bamboo.  It knits at 5 stitches to one inch and has a very interesting texture.  The variegated colors blend beautifully with the solids, and will work together wonderfully in many garments for all seasons.  A scarf made with one of the solid and variegated combinations is sitting in the yarn bowl in the picture.

20171226_141106We’re thrilled to be able to offer you new yarn bowls from a Mooresville potter.  Rick Luttrell is not only talented, but he’s also very creative.  As you can see from the picture, his yarn bowls are anything but usual.  He even thought to put spots in the sides to hold your needles or hooks.  If you don’t see what you like, just let us know because he’s happy to take special orders.

Time to mark your calendar.  Knitted Knockers will be Friday January, 5, and Sit & Stitch is Friday, January 19 (sign up by Wednesday January 17).  As always our regular classes continue every week.

We all wish you a very Happy, Healthy, and Peaceful New Year filled with wonderful projects and many stitches.  Keep your needles moving through each and every one.

Betsy
