A Celebration of Eloise!!!

Eloise4

Please join us this Friday from 6 – 8pm in the shop as we celebrate the wonderful Eloise and toast her and Josh on their next chapter. Eloise has been with JP Knit & Stitch since we first opened our doors in March 2011 . She quickly became indispensable, which will come as no surprise to anyone who have been lucky enough to work with her over these last four and a half years. She was promoted to office manager and as such has been an integral part of our JP Knit & Stitch team.  I have worked closely with Eloise over these years and am grateful for her support, dedication, and friendship. I – and all of us in the shop – will miss her. We are feeling very fortunate that she is moving within an hour’s drive of us so she will be back to see us occasionally. Please stop by and raise a glass to her!

Yarns for Fall: Local and not-so-local

We’re gearing up for crisp days, fall knitting, and the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl, and that means all sorts of new yarn. We’ve brought in favorite yarns from our own backyard, and from across the Atlantic. Plus, they’re all machine washable!

Skeinny Dipping: Hand dyed right here in Woburn, we have two squisky, lovely bases: Journey Worsted and and fingering weight Merino Single. We choose subtle, complicated semisolid colors perfect for extra special sweaters.

Nice & Knit: We loved using their DK weight during our FunFunFun Shawl Knit Along, so we’ve added more lovely hand dyed skeins. Make your own generous shawl or sweet but hearty baby blanket.

Hedgehog Fibres: We are so excited to be the only shop in Massachusetts to carry Hedgehog Fibres! Their vibrant colors really need to be seen in person. We chose their cushy sock base; it’ll be perfect for super saturated wraps, gloves, and, of course, socks!

Crocheting, Cutting, and Mending: Upcoming Events this Summer

We have all sorts of events happening this summer! Check out the full list on the left, including workshops on weaving and needlepoint, plus a party. Here’s a sample:

Tonight! Join Alexis for an evening of Community Crochet! The utility pole outside the shop has had a knitted cozy since we opened (over 4 years ago!) and it’s time to beautify that electrical box outside our door, too. Join us for refreshments, instruction, and some crafty socializing.

July 21: Bring in your dull fabric scissors to be sharpened by On the Edge Knife Sharpening. It’s easy to get used to the total pain of dull scissors, but freshly sharpened scissors will make all your summer sewing a breeze!

July 24: Fixing a hole in a beloved garment can make it even better! Learn visible mending; if you’ve used a needle and thread, you can dive into this lovely, meditative craft. Check out Kate’s gorgeous mended sample below!
