Let's Support our Community

November 22, 2019

We are once again partnering with the Good Neighbor Center in Tigard for our holiday community project.  They were so appreciative last year of everything that was generously donated by Nitro customers!  The Good Neighbor Center is dedicated to providing safe, emergency housing and supportive, empowering services to families.  There are some much-needed items for the families that depend on their services, specifically new packages of socks, undies, PJs, and t-shirts in sizes for the entire family.  We will be collecting these items at the store and personally delivering them to the Center throughout the season.

Trunk Show with Grace's Cases

We are very excited to be hosting a trunk show with Grace's Cases on Friday September 20th from 10-6pm.  These beautiful locally-made needle cases are designed by a knitter, thoughtfully constructed and meticulously handcrafted!  They are some of the most beautiful needle cases 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 to see all the different possibilities!  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!!

chevron baby blanket whirligig

We are featuring chevrons this month!  We chose two patterns and corresponding self-striping yarns to highlight the shape of the chevrons.  The blanket is Chevron Baby Blanket by Espace Tricot, using Whirligig by Cascade or Feza Gradient Kit.  One 200-gram skein will make this size.  We slightly modified the pattern, so be sure to take a picture of our tag when you're in the store.  For the cowl, it's our store pattern Chevron Cowl using Melilla Fingering.  You'll receive a copy of the pattern with purchase of this yarn.
