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.
The big news this month is the start of our annual MARDI GRAS SALE!!! Mark your calendar for February 28, and March 1, 3, and 4. We’ll have our usual delicious king cakes, (with prizes for those who find the babies), crazy costumes, a second line or two, lots of fun, and fabulous prices. To get the best deals, you’ll have to dress for the party. Wearing purple, green, or gold, will give you 1% off you purchases. Wearing all three will be worth 5%. Sing a Mardi Gras song to us for 2%. A Margi Gras slogan is worth an additional 2%, as are real Mardi Gras beads. If you have a real Mardi Gras Doubloon, that adds another 3% to your total discount. (Remember – we gave you beads and doubloons last year, so dig them out and bring them with you.) If you have a real Zulu coconut and are willing to give it to Betsy to keep, you’ll get an additional 10% off. Any wild, crazy, and legal Mardi Gras attire will be worth extra percentage off your purchases, so have fun getting wild and crazy while you save money!
Of course we have new needlepoint canvases and yarn, as well as some great new books and patterns. Classic Elite sent us lovely new colors of Chateau and Soft Linen, and two new books. One is filled with wonderfully little projects to start now for spring and summer that includes scarves, wraps, and tops. They’ll be sending us more new yarns and books later this month since we’ll be joining them in a Knit Along starting in March. We will have more about that in next month’s newsletter.
Knit One, Crochet Too has wonderful new colors of Pea Pods, a worsted weight cotton with bold colors. It’s just the right yarn to be knitting now. Soie et Lin is a silk and linen blend DK weight with a lovely silky drape. Cozette is a sport weight silk and cotton blend yarn that’s great for garments you want to wear all year. It has a slightly rustic texture and is lovely to work with. Nautika is a heavy worsted weight microfiber and nylon blend. It has a lovely soft sheen and great stitch definition. DungarEase is a cotton and acrylic blend that’s super soft, machine wash and dry and looks like faded denim. Stop by and see these wonderful new yarns.
We have great new colors of Rayon Metallic and Bulky Rayon Chenille from Blue Heron Yarns, as well as new colors of Colinton Australia’s beautiful, unbrushed mohair and mohair blend. Soft and luscious, they’re all perfect for your special spring and summer projects.
