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.
Looking at the calendar, spring is just around the corner, and we all know what that means – NEW YARNS! We’re expecting two blends from Cestari this week that are absolutely heavenly. They’re soft, light, and lovely. The colors sing spring. They’re perfect for light scarves, shawls, and cardigans for the cool evenings or over-air conditioned places you’re going. Our other companies will be following with new yarns scheduled to come in every week or two through the first of May.
Marble Chunky is a wonderful yarn from James C Brett that comes in great colors, knits up quickly, has an excellent yardage, and is machine wash and dry. We have patterns for child and adult garments that you’re going to love. I’m working on a boxy sweater knit top down in one piece that takes just 3 balls! It will be done in a week, even with weaving in those pesky ends.
We have lots of new bags – your favorites in every size from small to super extra, extra, extra large. Those big ones are for the needlepointers to carry their canvases in, although you could fit in an afghan or two. They’re clear, sturdy plastic so you can easily see what’s inside. (So can everyone else if you feel like showing off a special yarn or project.) These are the same ones we’ve had before that everyone loved. I personally like the square ones because they open flat on the table and I can see everything, but you may like the ones with a hole to feed your yarn through, or a big tote you can toss over your shoulder. And now the store smells like a new doll with all that plastic in one place! That brings back memories.
Our Knit, Swirl! class starts on the 3rd. It’s not too late to sign up since you can join the class any time. You don’t need to come every week – you’re welcome to drop in when you have a question or problem, but if you plan on coming, you MUST call us by 6 PM on the Tuesday you plan to come. Since the store will be open for the class only, if no one calls, we will close and go home. Class will be from 7 pm – 9 pm. The cost is $15 per class ($5 for current students in other classes). Since it’s a class, you must buy your yarn in the store.
Our Knit-A-Long with Cascade Yarn is going beautifully. We have seen and photographed the first finished piece. When you finish yours, bring it in so we can photograph it. We’ll have our KAL party on Sunday, May 31st, so mark your calendar!
While you’re marking your calendar, the next Sit and Stitch is March 20, and Moonlight Madness is April 17.
We have new supplies of Addi FlipStix, and all sorts of other good things, so stop by and see us soon!
Keep your needles moving!
