Virtual Trunk Show with Tomato Moon Totes

May 01, 2020

 Tomato Moon totes are locally made and thoughtfully designed knitting bags.  There are a variety of good sizes to fit projects and beautifully constructed with well-appointed details and sturdy fabric.  All totes are lined and interfaced and have generous openings which allows them to keep their shape and stand up so you're not fighting with the bag to get your project in and out.  Each bag is a one-of-a-kind treasure!

Click on the red words for each bag type, to be taken to the product page with larger pictures and details about dimensions.

This trunk show will run through May 8th, so get your favorite now!  Mother's Day is May 10th - a new project bag stuffed with beautiful yarn and needles makes a great stay home/stay safe gift!

Casapinka's LYS Shawl

April 21, 2020

We worked with Amy Lee to put together kits for this special and fun event!  The kit will be our May KAL and you may choose to knit the Breathe and Hope Shawl, or a shawl of your choice.  We are also linking other two-color patterns that would work well with these kits.  Click here to be taken to the product page. 

The gallery view of kits in here is designed to let you get a good overview of all the color combos to make your decision easier.  We are trying to make this as fun of an online shopping experience as possible because we know it's hard to buy yarn online.
Note:  You will see numbers missing; it's because they're sold out.

Our Virtual Knitting Community

March 16, 2020

One of the biggest roles an LYS fills is providing a community.  While that is usually an in-person one, our unprecedented times are calling for a virtual one...so here goes.

All of us at Nitro Knitters are going to extend that community to social media and share our creative endeavors while trying to do our part to slow the spread.  We, like most of you, do more than knit or crochet.  We sew, bake, create artwork, and have cute pets.  If you need some distraction and want to look at something other than news on your phone, follow the hashtag #nitroknitterscommunity.  And please share what you're doing with us!  Tag anyone who could use a knitting community right now.  You can even set up notifications for when certain hashtags are used or people have posted. 

For those of you who aren't on social media, I will keep this blog up-to-date as well.

If you want to email, you can reach us at nitroknitters@gmail.com   

Stay safe, and we will all get through this together.

Upcoming Trunk Shows

February 21, 2020

We have some fun trunk shows with Indie dyers planned for March!


candy skein
Tami from Candy Skein in Astoria Oregon will be here on Thursday March 5th from 11am-6pm.  She has a beautiful selection of hand-dyed tonals along with speckles and variegated.  Her yarn is even more special because she has worked with a mill to custom design her bases. 
six and seven fiber
Rachel of Six and Seven Fiber in Colorado will be here on Friday March 6th from 10am-4pm.  This is Rachel's first trunk show with us, so we're excited to see all the beautiful yarn and projects she's bringing for us.  Rachel has yarn in fingering weight to worsted weight and has designed a beautiful tonal and variegated palette.  She also puts together mini skein sets in her Harry Potter and Anne of Green Gables colors.
nanostitch lab
Saturday the 7th we are very excited to welcome Angela and Heather of NanoStitch Lab for a trunk show on 12pm-5pm. These two Seattle ladies are dyeing like "mad scientists" to make sure they have a good selection of fun, and new colors for our enjoyment. Come by and check out all the pretties they're bringing down especially for you!
