There’s always opportunities to learn when you’re knitting! With the free Cascade pattern for Lamby, the head is knit using double pointed needles. Dottie has done all kinds of knitting projects, but had never knit with double pointed needles before. She finished not just one, but two of these Pluscious gifts, perfect as a baby shower gift. Hurray for Dottie!
Go ahead, try something new. The nice thing about knitting is that if it doesn’t work the first time, you can try again.

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.
