We still have some books, lots of single patterns, and knitting needles and hooks at both the small and larger end of the size range.

Come visit in our last 3 days and enter into the drawing for this lovely Ludlow Linen Scarf, a design by Susan Mehringer. We will draw the lucky winner when we close our doors for the very last time at 5 pm this Sunday, February 1. Thank you for your continued support throughout the years. We’ll see you around town.
I’m going to use this space for some gratitude!
First, I want to thank the knitting, crocheting, and fiber fans of this community for their kind words over the last few weeks. While I am eager to see what comes next for me and my family, I am truly sad to be closing and will miss many things about Knitting Etc!
Second, I want to shout out a huge “Thank You” to my husband Steven, who you might not realize has been a crucial component to Knitting Etc. We worked countless fun weekends together in the shop before the kids arrived. Steven continues to write newsletters, manage my website, do most of the bookkeeping, and help with marketing campaigns. He’s been an incredibly supportive partner for the last nine years, and I do not think I could have done this without him!
And now… It’s time for another mark down! We’re getting close to the end, so come see what treasures are waiting for you!
60% off books, buttons, patterns!

I am truly sad to announce that Knitting Etc will be closing. My life priorities have changed and I must close to devote more time to my children and family.

I am primarily a garment knitter. I love to knit sweaters and skirts and I love to follow a well-written pattern, where all the uncertainty of potential design pitfalls has been eliminated. My favorite weight yarn to use is a DK as it knits up fast enough for gratification at each sitting while still providing a beautifully fluid fabric.
The shop has recently received large shipments of two of my favorite DK yarns, with a host of patterns perfect for rocking a sweater out before the seasons change. Ha! Who are we kidding? You’ll be able to wear any sweater started now well into May here in upstate NY!
Easy Folded Poncho
- The ever versatile Rowan Felted Tweed comes in beautiful array of colors. All that tweedy goodness is actually a blend of merino, alpaca, and viscose, so while it has the rustic look of a traditional tweed, it feels super soft. On my list of things to knit with this delicious yarn: Sage by Marie Wallin from her first independent collection Windswept. This is an epic project, but oh so worth the effort. If you just can’t face color work for a sweater, there is always the gorgeous throw that could be knit from the sweater’s chart. Either way, we’re thinking this would be a great knit a long project. Stay tuned.
- Berenice from Brooklyn Tweed’s Kid collection. My daughter wanted this the moment she saw it and Felted Tweed will be a great substitute yarn in this instance.
- BlueSand Cardigan by La Maison Rililie Designs. I love to wear drapy cardigans, so I’m always on the lookout for an interesting design. I heard this pattern reviewed on the Electric Sheep podcast, and, since she is a fan of Brooklyn Tweed patterns too, figured her advice was sound. Looking around on Ravelry. This pattern is flattering on all shapes, and looks beautiful in a solid shade as well.
- If you don’t want to knit a sweater, Churchmouse Yarns Easy Folded Poncho is an excellent choice for both beginning and experienced knitters alike. Everyone who has tried on the shop’s sample has been smitten, and this design would be fabulous in the Felted Tweed or one of the superb colorways of Madelinetosh DK we now have stocked.
Speaking of Madelinetosh DK, Lori Versaci has designed a slew of patterns using this gorgeous superwash plied yarn. Pour Moi is one of those cardigans you will wear over and over (I know I would!). It’s a nice twist on the traditional men’s cardigan, with an A-line shape that is super flattering.
The list of kids’ patterns she has designed with this yarn in mind is staggering: Shadow Ribs, Dots Knots, Open Star, Little Eyes, and the wonderful Basic Kid are designed for ages 2-14 years, so you’ll be able to knit quite a few before your little people outgrow the patterns.
So much to choose from…what will you start the new year with?
