Project of the Month

January 12, 2017

speargrass hat plymouth gina


Each month we choose a project that highlights a special skill.  This month we have chosen Speargrass Hat by Susie Gourlay.  It features a two-row lace chevron pattern that is very well suited for self-striping yarn, reminiscent of speargrass found on the prairies.  We knit our store sample in Plymouth's Gina for a fun self-striping chevron effect.  Perfect for keeping your head warm during our cold, cold weather.

Trunk Show with String Theory Colorworks

May 14, 2015

Nitro Knitters proudly welcomes from New Mexico, Caitlin Cieslewska of String Theory Colorworks, for a very special trunk show Saturday, June 6th from 12-4 pm

String Theory Colorworks started out in 2009 with the fateful words "Hey, honey!  Wouldn't it be cool if..?"  Don't ever say such things to an engineer.  Caitlin started dyeing self striping yarn that weekend with the help of her husband, affectionately know as Macgyver-ski.  Caitlin was a biology major and her husband is an electrical engineer, so they decided that all of the yarns should have "science-y" names.  She says, "A lot of our colorways interconnect in ways that only make sense to my insane brain."  We know that you will love the fabulous colorsways and they will definitely make sense to knitters who enjoy fun quality yarns. 
String Theory Colorworks specializes in self striping yarns, so sock knitters and fans of self striping accessories will be in yarn heaven!  Come on by and meet Caitlin during the show and the magic of String Theory Colorworks!
