Twas the 25 days of Christmas and a contest!

Twas the 25 days of Christmas and all through the studio the Knit Fits are making quite a stir!
While the family was stuffing the turkey the Knit Fits were working hard themselves. They have created quite the deal for the 25 days of Christmas!
Starting Monday December 1st and running through midnight on the 25th, for every $40 you spend receive a $10 gift certificate! This certificate will be mailed with your purchase to gift or keep for yourself! There is no limit to the number of gift certificates you can receive!
Also in their mischief the Knit Fits decided to be sneaky and randomly place one item on sale for 50% off. Check daily, you never know if may be the item you were waiting for!
I hope their trouble making creates a bright Christmas for you. I am sure it will keep us here at Knit Fit Knitting busy in the workshop all season long!
Knit Fit Knitting
Also check back this week for Christmas themed colorways in yarn and spinning fiber!

Now, for a contest! We now have a new base yarn that I LOVE! It is 50% Suri Alpaca and 50% Merino. It is so soft you wouldn't believe it! I am dyeing some now for myself to make baby sweaters and the like from it. It is sport weight but it is not superwash. I know you guys will love it as well. It will make unbelievably warm socks!
Now, I need a name for it! Ideas? How about submit them via blog comment or e-mail OR PM me on Ravelry. Once I find one that I like the winner will receive at $25 gift card!

New Colorways and Christmas in July!

Several new colorways coming soon... the first skeins are headed to Spin a Yarn in West Jefferson, NC. I am also headed to Spin a Yarn this Saturday for Christmas in July. This is a big event up in the mountains with tons of arts and crafts and people! I am looking forward to spending the whole day in fiber and spinning yarn. If you are in NC you should definitely make the trip and come and see us!
I am also turning the heel on the barn socks, and I have cast on for a new design.
Also I am re-instating the sock club starting Aug. 1st. Sign-ups will open Friday with minimal slots available!
Check out Etsy for some new yarns that aren't even on the website yet!

I love this yarn!

This is by far my favorite. I LOVE the softness of this yarn. This would make the PERFECT baby sweater! So soft and silky...
3 new colors, all pastel. Banana Split, Cotton Candy and Oh Baby. These yarns are listed on Etsy, 1 skein in each colorway of Ecstasy (50/50 Suri Alpaca and BFL). I have limited supply of this base yarn so get it while it last! I may be keeping one to knit a baby sweater for B...

New socks...

2 new pairs of socks... I cast on for a pair of Holey socks last night. These socks will be for myself.
I also started a sock that I call "Barn Socks" which is a new design that I hope to have finish and tested by the end of July.
We had a big turn out at the 2-at-a-time socks class at Chix with Stix in Lenoir, NC. Looking forward to doing it again next weekend!
I have also been dyeing a lot of yarn today. I have been dyeing Ecstasy in some new colorways and I love it! This base yarn is to "dye" for (pardon my pun) and I am loving the new colors. There are 3 of them, and they are pastels. Pictures to come soon!
I also have a new furry creature of the feline type. She was a rescue from the streets that Forgotten Felines of Forsyth brought in to the hospital to have spayed Friday. She captured my heart and now lives with me here. I will post photos as soon as I get them. She settled in a little too well! She loves the dogs. B loves her, a little too much, but she is doing well with it!

2 socks at a time...

I love this method! It is the end of second sock syndrome. I am currently teaching classes at yarn shops in North Carolina using this method. It is a life saver for me.
Here is a pair that I am working on using Nature's Choice in the Backyarnigans colorway. I am loving Nature's Choice (bamboo blend) for summer socks, and so are my customers!

I have several new base yarns and have redone part of the site.
I am in love with Endurance and Ecstasy. They are fabulous. I also love Bambaby. It is a green yarn and perfect for baby sweaters (which is what I love knitting).
A new alpaca yarn in DK weight and a Suri alpaca and BFL fingering weight yarn.
I am really excited about carrying these new yarns!
