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.
WOW! Did we have a GREAT YARN CRAWL! If you missed it, you missed a lot of fun. Put it on your calendar for next year. For right now, go to the Charlotte Area Yarn Crawl Facebook page and look at the videos from the knitted knocker donation Sunday. We had the Pink Lady fire truck at the store on the 30th to pick up ours, and ended up with a tangle of knitters (& crocheters) here for the afternoon. I just made that phrase up but I think it’s perfect. Now, of course, they want Sunday afternoon knitting! Give a knitter a yard and she’ll take a skein!
Our fall 2018 Knit Along (KAL) starts this month. This is a simple one. We’re focusing on quick and easy knitted and crocheted gifts. Just buy 2 balls or skeins (or 400 yards total) of yarn and sign up before November 10th. The gifts can be for anyone, including yourself or your favorite puppy. The deadline and our KAL party will be December 16th from 1 – 4 pm with the usual food, fun, and prizes. You don’t want to miss this!
A big box of Addi needles just arrived – including FlexiFlips in all sizes! These always fly out the door so if you want them, come on in or call us to hold them for you.
Wonderland Yarns September birthstone yarn is here. It’s Sapphire, of course, and it’s as beautiful as all of the rest of this year’s months. It’s in Cheshire Cat, a fingering weight, superwash Merino. Its so lovely to work with and even nicer to wear. Even if it’s not your birthstone, you’ll want to make something with it.
More new yarns are in! We have great new colors of Pacific from Cascade. This is a wonderful machine wash and dry blend of merino and acrylic in worsted weight. It does everything well. They sent us lots of new colors of Longwood, Longwood Sport, 220 Superwash, Swaddle, Big Wheel, Pinwheel, and all the Heritage yarns. These are all great yarns – they’re machine wash and dry, lovely to work with and even nicer to wear. Anthem Chunky arrived with 16 new colors. This acrylic yarn has a shade for everybody. Their newest yarn is Melilla Fingering. If you like Melilla worsted, you’ll love this! This silk, wool, nylon blend will make wonderful socks and fabulous accessories.
We also have several of Cascade’s newest 60 Quick books – one for kid’s clothes, and my favorite, 60 Quick Knits for Beginners. You don’t have to be a beginner to love this one. The patterns are great, and the variety of projects is wonderful. There are lots of good gift ideas here for yourself or those on your gift list and they’ll work beautifully for our KAL.
We have more colors of Aalta’s Truth. This is 80% Merino and 20% Baby Alpaca. It’s one of the softest DK yarns ever. We also have their Hand-dyed Truth. These are fabulous variegated colors and they work beautifully with their solids. You’ll want to use all of them.
Knitted Knockers is the 5th this month. Join us so we can start refilling our basket. Sit and Stitch is the 19th. Make sure you let us know if you’re coming by the 17th.
Think about your KAL project and keep your needles moving!
