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.

OCTOBER GREETINGS!

Fall has arrived!  Aren’t the chilly mornings and evenings wonderful?  It makes you want to curl up with a good ball of yarn and move those stitches along.  The chill should remind you that the holidays are coming.  If you plan on making gifts you need to get started very soon.  The time is going to fly by, and this year’s gift will turn into next year’s if you don’t get moving!  I know this because I’ve been working on a beautiful large shawl for my daughter for the last several Christmases.  When it doesn’t get done, I decide I’ll finish it for her birthday in March.  When that day flies past, I put it aside thinking I’ll have plenty of time to finish it for next year.  I may actually finish it this year.  We have large orders from two of our main supplies scheduled to arrive in the next week or two, so you’ll have lots of new things to choose from if you haven’t yet decided what gifts to make.

The Yarn Crawl was wonderful again this year.  We always love seeing so many new faces.  Congratulations to all of you who won something!  With 17 major prizes and 103 people participating, the chances of winning were very good.  Mark your calendar for September 23 – 30 next year.

We have two wonderful new limited edition yarns from Wonderland Yarns.  They’re both monthly specials, and they aren’t usually this close in color.  One is this month’s deSTITCHnation.  This year’s theme is books so this one is Robin Hood.  The yarn is Queen of Hearts, a fingering blend of fine merino, cashmere, and nylon.  It comes with a scarf pattern and a pin depicting Major Oak, the tree Robin and his men slept in.  It’s 800 – 1100 years old and is the largest oak in Britain with a girth of just over 36 feet!  The pin isn’t that big but it’s just as beautiful.

The other is part of the Vintage collect.  These also come with a pin, and the pattern choice is up to you.  The yarn is Alice, a superwash merino and silk blend DK with a wonderful hand,  The 242 yards will be perfect for cowls, hats, or mittens and fingerless gloves.  The theme is Gnome and the pin is delightful.

For all of you who joined our Mystery Knit Along (KAL), we are almost finished.  The party will be Sunday, Oct. 9, from 1 – 4 pm at the store.  We’ll have gifts for everyone who participated, and good snacks.  There will a drawing for the big prize for all of those who finished, as usual.  Bring your finished (or not) project so we can all “ooh” and “aah” over them.  We’ll be announcing our next KAL at that time, but it won’t start right away.  You can have a little breather to work on other projects – I need one, too.

This month our Moonlight Stitching will be on Friday, October 21.  We’ll be having just dessert this month.  If you plan to attend, please let us know by Wednesday, October 19th.  For now, enjoy the beautiful fall weather, and keep your needles moving!

Betsy
