From the Melrose City web site
While everyone is running around during the citywide Melrose Yard Sale 2015, you can stop by Sit and Knit for a Cascade Yarn tasting. Try out new yarns recently released, compare them to those tried and true Cascade yarns you already know… and win prizes to boot!
Sit and Knit’s Cascade Yarn Tasting is on Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 11 to 2... so you can even stop by after the yard sale ends.
All Cascade yarn purchases and orders on Saturday will be discounted 20%.
The packages arrive daily with scrumptious new yarns for all kinds of fall knitting!
Mrs Crosby Train Case, Berroco Folio, Lang Mille Colori, Plymouth Linaza
Whether you like it super bulky, fingering, DK or sport weight, there are new yarns in the shop to get your fingers itching. We’re excited to carry Mrs Crosby washable fingering weight yarns… the sheen, the colors!
Not sure what to do? We’ve got plenty of samples and new patterns (plus the Berroco Portfolio 1 book which features independent designers knitting in Ultra Alpaca and Ultra Alpaca Fine)
It’s not all here yet, so keep stopping by for a scrumptious hand dye merino and silk worsted weight and more fingering and sock yarn that will pop in all season.
It’s a great way to escape from back to school frenetic moments and those hot summer days.
Cynthia, Janet, Paula and Alanna knit their weight in yarn before the North Shore Yarn Crawl, showing off some of the delightful new yarns that arrived before spring.
Spring sunshine doesn’t do justice to the gorgeous colors in Rowan Cotton Lustre and Lang Mille Colori! These are just 2 of the new yarns for Spring 2015 at Sit n Knit!
A book of sweater patterns in the bulky weight Rowan Cotton Lustre just arrived, but we’ve got 2 free spring scarf patterns if you’d like to sample the yarn. Alanna swears that this yarn is addictive and is about to cast on Umeko . Others are buying yarn for Misaki. Paula wants to knit the Rowan Straight Top
Lang’s Mille Color Baby looks fabulous in every fingering weight pattern it meets. Its long color changes makes knitting a bit like eating potato chips (but much healthier!). You can’t have just one!
With fun new ways to knit quick shower gifts with Pluscious and Bentley, there’s plenty of spring inspiration blooming here these days!
So many new yarns!
This photo was snapped last week, before a big basket full of Frolicking Feet Sock Yarn, new worsted weight superwash merino options, the bulky weight sophisticated Rowan Cotton Luster, new dk washable options, and silky Cascade Ultra Pima Fine... oh, and a new Cascade pattern book with plenty of inspiration. All of this and more arrived just in time for the North Shore Yarn Crawl this weekend. And lovely project bags and aprons made with fun yarn loving fabric by Marimode.
We’ve put together marvelous raffle prizes, so be sure to swing by for the fun this weekend.
We’re open during the crawl from 10 – 5 Thursday through Saturday and Sunday from 1 – 5.
See you there!
We know that spring is on its way as new yarn winds up on our doorstep for the North Shore Yarn Crawl, which takes place the second weekend of March. Meanwhile, it’s been wonderful to see all of the beautiful things everyone finishes, such as
Mary O’Donnell’s beautiful Melrose sweater
This pattern is by Cecily Glowik MacDonald
Mary O’Donnell modeled her finished Melrose Sweater, which was designed by Cecily Glowik MacDonald.
Pat Lefkovich knit this adorable chicken hat
Pat Lefkovich scratched among oodles of chicken patterns to find the little peep hat. She did a great job on this!
Tirzah Deering finished her December baby blanket in time!
Keep on knitting and see you during the yarn crawl. We’ll be open Thursday through Saturday from 10 – 5 and 1 – 5 on Sunday.
If nothing else, these snowstorms bring wonderful opportunities for you to knit!
We’re all stocked up on the lovely bulky and worsted weight Plymouth Gina, more tonal variegated goodness with Berocco Boboli, plenty of Alpaca as well as the ol’ working horse Plymouth Encore and Cascade wools in sock to worsted weights.
As long as Melrose schools are in session, we’re open 10 – 5 Tuesday through Friday and 10 – 2 on Saturday.
Stop on by to see what new samples we have in the shop!
Best wishes for a peaceful and joyous holiday season!
Thanks to everyone who’s been so supportive over the last year. Your knitting goodness is appreciated! Extra gratitude to all of the people who contributed to our ongoing efforts at Beth Israel’s newborns with special needs. We’ve donated so many hats, blankets, booties and sweaters so their staff can prepare helpful packages for families in need.
May 2015 bring you much joy and cheer!
Knitting an afghan on a cold evening is an New England pleasure. Ever more pleasing is looking at our customer’s projects done on those New England nights. Janet Brussard brought in her glorious Ramblin Rose afghan and we couldn’t help but gasp! Isn’t it wonderful?
Thanks Janet for treating us to a sneak peak!
Warm weather knitting means something cottony and light on the needles.
The Miami Beach Shawl has a lovely lace pattern, takes less than 3 skeins of Ultra Pima yarn. It’s been a popular project and we love how everyone’s color looks great!
Janet looks great with the Miami Shawl wrapped around her!
Now at Sit and Knit Melrose! Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh
Adorable! Who could resist a knit clove of garlic, a praying mantis or other biological wonder? Alanna can’t wait to cast on some of these.
