Come to the next Happy Stitching Hour on

Friday, December  7, from 5 to 7 pm.

Join us for this social knitting time, meet some new people, re-connect with others, and just hang out. We’ll chat, knit, stitch, wind down after the long work week, and shop this month’s Happy Hour Sale!  We will not be offering any knitting instructions or help, just a knitting visit…. The event is free. First come first serve. We have seats for approximately 15 people. Feel free to bring a snack or drinks to share!

A Weekend of “Thank You” Sales

Rippled Kit from Nelkin Designs

Thanksgiving is a time to take stock and be thankful for our many blessings. We at Knitting Etc have much to be thankful for, including your friendship and loyalty. This year, we will show our appreciation by hosting a post-Thanksgiving weekend of sales.

On Friday, November 23, all of our accessory kits will be 20% off. This includes gorgeous shawl kits from ArtYarns, Be Sweet and HPKY, and jewelry kits from our good friend, Laura Nelkin. (We’ll be having a class on December 15 for people who want to try one of Laura’s patterns but are a bit intimidated by the beads.) If you can’t find an existing kit that you love, we’ll let you make up your own: pick a shawl, scarf or cowl pattern and the yarn to make it, and we’ll give you the 20% discount.

Quick and Easy Christmas Stocking

On Saturday, November 24, we’re having a “chubby” yarn sale. All yarns that knit at a gauge of 3.5 sts/in or larger will be 20% off. We have plenty of alpaca and wool in stock for you to make quick holiday gifts with soft and warm “chubby” yarns! With your bulky yarn purchase, we’re giving away a free copy of Cathy Allen’s Quick and Easy Christmas Stocking pattern. Intermediate and advanced knitters will be able to whip up a Christmas stocking from this pattern in short order. Inexperienced knitters can sign up for a class (meeting on December 2, 9 and 16) using Cathy’s pattern.

If big yarn isn’t your thing, we will be having a “skinny” yarn sale on Sunday, November 25. All of our sock, fingering and lace-weight yarns will be 20% off.

We wish you all a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving. The shop will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and open for normal business hours on Friday. We are looking forward to seeing you this weekend.
