Pulsescarf2

We love every Antonia Shankland pattern we have met.  What is not to love?  The patterns are elegant, fashionable and easy to knit. And she has a spectacular flair for color.  She put together the Unicorn Stripes in 30 perfectly placed colors. (more…)

New from Swans Island

swans island ramboilletWe love Swans Island yarns.  Once you knit with any of the wools you will surely feel the same.  What is not to love.  Their All-American, hand-dyed yarn has an elegant and sturdy hand.  We are pleased to announce the introduction of another in their line, Rambouillet. (more…)

More Quince to Love!

quince chickadeeThis summer we proudly announced that we are a Quince & Co. flagship store – one of only 57 stores worldwide and the 37th in America.  Quince wools are all American and high-quality.

The wools have a strong hand and are a joy to work with.  We watch with great delight as you create shawls, hats, gloves, sweaters, and return wanting to knit more Quince! (more…)

Out with the Old, In with the New!

We chose three fabulous yarns that are accompanied by great patterns and offer them to the lucky few at a special rate.  Once they are gone, they are gone.
We find ourselves in need of more space and there are bins with only a few skeins of a particular yarn.  It is one of those win-win things:  You get glorious yarn at a discount and we get more space in which you will find brand new yarns!  The yarns are delicious, the patterns perfect and you get to spend a little less.  Everyone is happy!

12:15 specials 1Swans Island Tussah Silk – this incredible sport weight yarn has been discontinued.  What we have is what you can get.  We offer two pattern options that make a perfect small cowl.  It is a delight and only needs two skeins.  Buy one, get the second at 1/2 price!

12:15 specials 3Chateau/Chalet – We love this chainette 100% alpaca chunky yarn.  Five skeins makes a stunning shawl.  Three skeins makes a great cowl.  We have about 20 skeins left.  You may have each skein at 25% off.

12:15 specials 2Big Bad Wool – A soft, washable wool/alpaca worsted weight yarn is useful for any number of great knit items.  A baby blanket or hat would be perfect.  Kathy knit a pair of boot toppers with the yarn (2 skeins) that are beautiful.  We have the pattern and the yarn and now you can buy it for 20% off!

 

We also have a new magic word for you!  Come into the Shop and say the words JELLY BEAN and you will get a nice little gift.  The words are magical until the 12th or while supplies of the gift remain.

Happy knitting!

Rebekah’s Hat

rebekah hatRebekah has just learned to knit, but she is taking to it like a duck to water!  She has just finished her second hat, made with Kathmandu, and it is wonderful.  She is quite enamored and is planning on moving on to scarves next.  Great job, Rebekah!

If you are working with Knit1 yarn, we would love for you to bring your finished projects into the Shop.  We love oohing and aahing over the final result with you and we may just put your work on the blog!
