I hope you'll enjoy my website! When you click on SHOP, you'll find a variety of knitting products all mixed together. If you click on Category and find the category that fits what you're looking for, that will save you some time.
Are you finding that you are at home more than usual - still! - and interested in exploring a hobby or learning more about knitting if you are already a knitter? I'd love to help you get started with a new, relaxing pastime that is also soothing and, on top of that, good for your brain! I am offering a Learn to Knit Special Kit for just $25. I am also now a dealer for the Schacht Spindle Company of Boulder, Colorado, maker of high-quality looms of all sizes and types, several great spinning wheels, and many accessories.
I started this company in the mountains in Colorado over 6 years ago and it is growing! I live in Pitkin, Colorado, year-round population of around 60 people...a VERY small town with a Post Office open two hours a day. I am happy to have called this home for over 25 years now. We have long winters, at 9242 ft. in elevation, and that means there's a lot of time for my favorite hobbies: knitting, weaving, plus scrapbooking!
Yearning to Learn to Knit? My favorite tutorial for learning to knit can be found at https://www.thesprucecrafts.com/knit-stitch-in-english-knitting-2116510, and my favorite link for a tutorial on casting on stitches can be found at https://www.thesprucecrafts.com/long-tail-cast-on-2116511

Knit Pitkin will get your order to you ASAP, with shipping the next business day (or if you order early enough in the day, before 9:30 a.m. Mountain Time, the same day). Shipping only to U.S. addresses for now. Hopefully, returns will not be necessary, but as a small business, I need to require that the item be returned in the same condition I shipped it in - barring damage in the mail - and that you pay for sending it back to me, and I feel that it's fair to split the original shipping cost that I have already spent to give you free shipping, between us, so I'll retain half of the original shipping cost and refund the remaining amount of your purchase. NOTE THAT DROP-SHIPPED ITEMS are not available with free shipping. Updated 2/4/2021.
I sell yarn and accessories for knitting and weaving (needles, looms, shuttles, and can take special orders for other Schacht Spindle Company items), some felting supplies, some kits, plus knitting and fiber art accessories, including ball winders and swifts).
As I write here in Colorado, a winter storm is moving in. Most of the sixty people who live here are staying home most of the time - it's that time in the world's history when we are not all vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus and its variants, but I look forward to the herd immunity that should happen later this year! Please order here online or if you have questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have Brown Sheep Company Lamb's Pride Worsted, Bulky, Brown Sheep Company Burly Spun yarns, Wildfoote sock yarn, Nature Spun Worsted, Lanaloft Worsted, Lanaloft Sport, Lana Boucle, Prairie Spun DK, Cotton Fleece, and Synchrony. I carry Cascade Super Wash 220, Cascade Super Wash Sport weight, Cascade Roslyn yarn, Cascade Fixation, and Cascade Aran yarns, as well as three different books from the 60 Quick series and a few skeins of a discontinued yarn called Seeds. I can also accept special orders.
I am a dealer for Schacht Spindle's products including looms both large and small, shuttles and bobbins, bobbin winders, etc. I sell knitting needles - single point pairs of needles, circular needles (including sets with interchangeable tips, by the high-quality German company, Addi), and double-pointed needles, plus cable needles. I can also take special orders. I have helping tools for knitters as well as larger items like the wood ball-winder by Nancy's Knit Knacks and Schacht's swifts, so you can wind your yarn into neat balls before you start your projects!
