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!

Last month we talked about spring, and I think we’ve gone through it already. With temperatures in the 80°s more often than not, and with shorts and flip flops everywhere, it must be summer!  The last of our spring and summer yarns have arrived, so we’re ready for the warm weather.  The new colors and fibers are wonderful for summer tops and cover ups for day or evening, and we have great choices for scarves and shawls to accent your summer wardrobe.

Great Adirondacks Yarn has a beautiful new 100% cotton in their fabulous shaded colors. Cotton Lace is a slubby, textured yarn that knits at a variety of gauges for loose, lacy shawls, traditional tanks and tops, and everything in between.

Tahiti from Schachenmayr is a 99% cotton 1% polyester (for a bit of stretch) fingering weight cotton in fabulous gradient shades.  I’m making a one ball scarf in a peachy tourquois colorway on a #5 needle.  It’s knitting beautifully, and I love the yarn.  Check it out on Ravelry for lots of garment ideas.

From Kraemer Yarns we have Tatamy, a 45% cotton 55% acrylic blend that machine washes and dries beautifully.  It’s a worsted weight knitting at 5 stitches per inch on a #7 – #9 needle.  We’ve had the Tweed variety before and this is the same base yarn.  The colors range from single colors to two close colors spun together – almost a very calm variegated look.  This yarn will do everything well.

You have to come in and touch the new yarns from Lucci YarnsOne is a fingering weight bamboo, Style Bamboo, in bright solid colors.  The second bamboo is Bamboo Lt. Worsted.  This yarn has two stands of different colors spun together.  They both are the softest yarn you can imagine, and will be fantastic accessories.  We also have Cotton Tape from Lucci Yarns.  It’s 100% mercerized cotton so you know it’s beautifully silky.  It’s a sport weight, and it comes in a variety of great colors.

We have the perfect gift for your favorite little person. Remember the animal scarf kits we have from Wendy yarns?  They have a pattern to turn the kit into a back pack that is absolutely adorable.  I have the grey sheep made up in the store.  It’s quick and easy, and all I need is a little person for it.  A 10 year old grandson isn’t going to work for this.  It was fun making, and the pattern is free.

Sit and Stitch is the 13th this month so make your reservations by the 11th. We’re have our usual great dessert and great fun.

Come see our great new yarns and keep your needles moving!

Betsy
