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.
April showers must have worked – we are all abloom with a riot of spring colors! No, they aren’t flowers, but they are the next best thing. Of course I mean yarn. Yarn is actually better than flowers in some ways. You don’t need to feed or water it. It will last a long time. It will protect you from the elements. You can knit and crochet with it before you have the fun of wearing or using it!
Before we get to the fun stuff, you need to know that starting June 1, 2023, our Monday hours will be noon till 6 pm. The rest of the week is not changing. We aren’t seeing many people before noon, and we hate the 5:00 pm traffic on I-77, so the change makes sense.
Moonlight Madness this month is May 19th from 6 – 10 pm. This will be a full dinner and dessert, so you must make reservations by May 17th if you plan to attend. The cost is $35. At this evening we’ll be unveiling our latest Knit Along (KAL). A KAL is a group knitting project that anyone can join. You need to buy the pattern and purchase your yarn in the store to be included. At the end of the KAL, we’ll have a party with gifts for everyone who finishes and our usual abundance of fun and good food. The last KAL was a big hit so we’re doing this one the same way. It will be a mystery, and you’ll get the first section on the 19th and then each consecutive section every other week until the project is finished. If you aren’t attending Moonlight Madness, you can sign up for the KAL from May 20th in the store.
Manos del Uruguay sent us more gradient kits, including their newest color, Moonbeam. This is Marina, a super wash lace weight merino that feels wonderful and knits up quickly with three strands held together in the kit pattern. We also have two 5-skein kits of fino, a 70% merino, 30% silk blend sport weight. These two color groups are put together for Knit One, Stitch Too and will be available to us until the end of the year. These 5-skein kits will make a number of projects on their own and we have full skeins of fino that they can be combined with for larger projects. Come see the beautiful scarf we have in it.
From Great Adirondacks we have three gorgeous summer yarns in their brilliant colors. Bamboo Fingering is 495 yards of 50% bamboo 50% cotton fingering yarn. Bamboo Cotton is 51% cotton 49% bamboo. It’s 247 yards of DK/light worsted weight yarn. Lulu is 95 yards of 100% pima cotton boucle’ yarn that knits at aran/heavy worst weight. Think of this one for a bright, textured pop on a plain top or a summer scarf or shawl. It’s just a bit of fun. These cotton and bamboo yarns take dyes beautifully for the pastels, neutrals, and bold colors we like so much.
Last but far from Least, Wonderland Yarn has shipped their next deSTITCHnation to us. It’s not here yet, so I don’t know what it is either, but you know it will be great! Come see us and keep your needles moving!
