Beautiful Knit Afghans on Show!

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!

Hurray for the North Shore Yarn Crawl!

Snow and Sun!

My goodness, what a wild winter it’s been!  For those of you new to the shop, know that we take snow days whenever Melrose Public Schools does. On Saturday, February 22, 2014, however, we’re taking a sun day off.  The shop will be closed but will open again on Tuesday, February 25 (provided there isn’t a snow day!).

We’re expecting a large shipment of Cascade yarn any day now, so stop by next week and shake off those winter blues. We’ll be glad to see you!

Throughout February, we are participating in the Melrose Chamber of Commerce Shop Local raffle. Spend more than $25 and you can enter a drawing to win an Apple iPad. The drawing will be in early March.

Don’t forget the North Shore Yarn Crawl on March 15-16. We’ll have give aways, sales and raffles galore, so get ready to stash up for spring knitting.

Snug and Quick Knit: The Oregon Vest

The Oregon Vest by Oat Couture has been a stalwart project at Sit n Knit for more than ten years.  Janet’s version in super bulky yarn has worn beautifully… ready for a skate on the ice in the park.

Oregon Vest
Not only is it warm, but it has handy pockets knit into the lower sides. This is a great project for a first sweater and TV knitting. The twisted rib edging looks sharp, don’t you think?

Welcome 2014!

A new year, a new baby blanket!

Janet sits down and starts another Anna Norling Fantastic Eyelet blanket.  This time, she’s using Cotton Supreme and making the crib size.

This pattern is great because it includes both an eyelet and feather and fan pattern. In addition, the pattern has 3 different sizes and directions for five different yarn gauges.  Talk about a pattern that does it all!
