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!

Finally – cool days so we can start thinking about warm, cozy sweaters and scarves, all those things we love to knit and crochet!  And guess what?  Our winter yarns are coming in slowly but surely so you can get busy with your hooks and needles.  What could be better?  And if you need some, our accessory wall is full again.

Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes for Skip’s surgery.  He’s recovering beautifully and feels better than he has in a long time.  We all appreciate your love and caring.  We also thank all of you who joined us for our annual Charlotte Area Yarn Crawl.  It’s wonderful seeing everyone turn out for the fun, to say nothing of the prizes!  We’re already planning next year’s crawl.

Our friends at Lanart surprised us with a wonderful donation of Lisa.  This is a soft, textured 100% Pima Cotton worsted weight.  We’re sharing some of it with our charity knitters and selling the rest, with the proceeds going to Brian’s Fund.  If you aren’t familiar with Brian’s Fund, check our website for details.  You’ll love it for baby items, dish and spa cloths and sweaters.

Plymouth restocked our shelves with all your favorites and sent us new yarns.  Avita is the first to arrive.  It’s a soft luxury with a bit a sparkle and beautiful halo.  A heavy worsted weight blend of Baby Alpaca, Lurex, and Nylon, it will float in a cowl or scarf or a fabulous top for the holidays.

From Great Adirondacks we have Textures, a DK 100% cotton thick- and-thin that will make great accessories in all their fabulous colors.  Their Merino Fingering is wonderful for socks but even better for scarves, mitts, shawls, and hats.  Their newest year is one of this year’s must haves – Chifon Sari Silk is just what it sounds like – a strip of repurposed fabric from making saris.  It’s thick-and-thin, a bit raggedy, unevenly colored, and, when you work it on very big needles or hooks, you get fantastic scarves and other accessories.  It works up fast and is great fun to wear. 

We have new yarns from UniversalMinou is Nylon, Baby Alpaca, and Merino DK weight.  It has a soft, airy, fluffy texture that will make wonderful accessories and trims on garments.  Cobblestone is 100% soft Merino 2 ply DK.  One ply is solid and the other is variegated giving it a handspun look.  With 612 yards per ball, one ball will go a long way for accessories, trims, garments, and any project you might want to make.

We’re having Moonlight Madness again this month – Friday the 22nd.  As always, we’ll have a healthy meal and a great dessert along with knitting, needlepoint, and crochet teachers.  The cost is $35 and you need to make reservations by the 20th if you plan to attend.

Keep your needles moving,

Betsy
