July Knit A Long (KAL)

Friday, June 24, 2016


We are kicking off our very first Knit-A-Long (also known as KAL in knit speak!) If you are interested in making some super cute fingerless gloves...keep reading!

Katie from KaterTaterknits will be hosting this fun KAL. We will be using colorwork to tell the story of our life in at least 4 colors of Hikoo Simplicity. This yarn is perfect because it's superwash, comes in a LOT of colors and is sold in many yarn stores (including A Little Knitty!!)

This is going to be a LOT of fun and chock-full of opportunites to customize, design and get creative. Not to worry, Katie will be there every step of the way to help advise and guide everyone through this project.

And if you stop in at the shop, we can create together!

Go to this page on Ravelry and add this pattern to your library, you will then be updated when it goes live!

Then stop in at the shop for your KAL Kit! You will receive 4 skeins of Simplicity Yarn and a project bag for $30! That's a $40 value! Add on a pair of Rockets and you will be 1/3 of the way to a FREE set of knitting needles. For more information on that go here.

If you don't live around me, I can pack up a kit for you and mail it! Just add $3 for shipping anywhere in the US!! Just pick 4 colors from below and Email me at info@alittleknitty.com and I'll get it shipped out to you pronto!! Follow us on Social Media with the hashtag #ALKKALJuly2016



Make sure you order or stop into the shop before we start on July 7th!!

Pick Your Plum Event

Thursday, June 23, 2016


A Little Knitty has teamed up again with Pick Your Plum to give you one stellar deal!!! 

I have worked with a few different deal-a-day sites and PYP is by far my favorite. Their platform is beautiful, their customer service is top notch and they just seem like great, down to earth people! If you haven't heard of them, make sure you check them out. They have the CUTEST things at really good prices.

I thought the launch of the kits would be fun to do on PYP, so there is a limited supply of bow & flower kits there, but go QUICK because they are going fast and will be gone by June 25th!




Kits are fun because you don't have to hunt around for all the necessities of a pattern, we did all the hard work for you! Just open and enjoy!! 

They also make great gifts, and at this price you can stock up for the Holidays! I won't be offering them at this price again this year...so grab them while you can!

As a thank you to all Local Yarn Shop Supporters, skacel would like to give back a little something special.

There is no limit to the number of free needles you can earn, so start building your collection today! This promotion is limited to in-store purchases only.

In the shop this week - Monday, June 20th to Friday, June 24th

Monday, June 20, 2016


Wow, this is the first official week of summer and I'm already falling down on the job and not publishing my weekly schedule!!! Whoops!


This weekend we kicked off summer with our first camping trip of the year (albeit damp!)...and there will be more to come I'm sure (let's hope LESS DAMP). The kids love getting out in nature, meeting new friends, eating yummy foods I don't normally allow and I love not caring where our phones are or what time it is. I seriously spent the whole weekend unplugged and that is SOOOO not natural for me..but needed!

Alright, so let's get back to news in the shop! The basket of random balls of yarn is going to great use. We have a knit scarf and crochet scarf started. When you stop in we would love for you to contribute as little or as many rows as you wish. When they get long enough I'll bind off, weave in ends and either donate to those in need right in our neighborhood, or take them to a local charity...it depends on how many we crank out! :) And I have an almost endless supply of random balls of yarn, so I challenge y'all to make me run out! ;)




I wanted to take a quick moment to thank those who leave notes for me when they check out, or after they have received the Learn to Knit Kit. I feel like all these little kits are my babies and I just so appreciate that you enjoy them! It's exciting to introduce people to the wonderful world of knitting!! 


Lastly...we have a legit email address now! Ya, coming up in the world! 
You can contact A Little Knitty at info@alittleknitty.com

This week we will be open Tuesday 10AM-5PM, Thursday 10AM-5PM and 6PM-8PM
We will be CLOSED this Friday

Thanks for joining me on this crazy fun journey, and for spreading word about our little shop!

Sit-n-Stitch

Friday, June 3, 2016


What in the world is Sit-n-Stitch??

I am a knitter to my core, so when I started the get togethers I called them "Knit Nights" but after awhile I had people asking if they could join if they did other yarn crafts. So, Sit-n-Stitch was born!

We believe in yarn crafters of every shape, size and skill level! 

Come Sit-n-Stitch with us awhile!
