January 11, 2017
It's hard to believe it's 2017 already! For us, 2016 was an amazing year. There were some big, exciting changes at Nitro Knitters. We're thankful for all of the wonderful customers that support Nitro. We have a lot of fun inspiring you by having new store samples and yarns that feed our knitting addiction! We're planning some fun things in 2017, so stay tuned!
January is often called selfish knitting month - holiday knitting is over and we get a chance to knit things just for the fun of it. Maybe there's a new skill you want to learn or a yarn you've been dying to try. We have some amazing teachers that teach on a weekly basis at the store. If you're looking for help on a project of your choice, check out our A-Z classes. We have project based classes to expand and push your skills. Want help with socks? Meaghan teaches socks every Tuesday.
My January knitting will be all about finishing some projects that have been on the needles too long! I view it as a personal responsibility to try out all the new yarns that come in to the store! How else can I recommend them to you? But that also means a lot of projects turn into UFOs.
All of us at Nitro Knitters wish you a happy, healthy 2017 full of knitting!!

This year Cascade introduced 220 Effects which has a subtle color changing. It kind of looks like a mix of variegated and splash. Cascade 220 is one of our favorite workhorse yarns. It is dependable and comes in a great array of colors. It has easy care so it make it a good choice for baby items, sweaters, blankets - really anything you want to knit. With the addition of the Effect colors, it introduces the potential to work a solid and a variegated of the same yarn together. The color possibilities are endless!

Trunk Show with Grace's Cases
We are very excited to be hosting a trunk show with Grace's Cases on Friday, March 4th, 10-4pm. These beautiful locally made needlecases are designed by a knitter, thoughtfully constructed and meticulously handcrafted! They are some of the most beautiful needlecases we have seen and come in an assortment of configurations to hold interchangeable, fixed circular, DPNs, notions and crochet hooks. The possibilities really are endless! There are various sizes - some to hold multiple types and sizes of needles, some to tuck just a few needles in for travelling. If needle storage is something you're looking for, this would be a wonderful chance to talk with the designers, Grace and Jaime, see all the different possibilities and even configure a case especially for you!! Also available from Grace's Cases are project bags and tote bags that are designed with a knitter in mind. These needlecases are a must-see!!
