Circo Cowl MKAL

I am constantly working on store samples so I know how the yarns I recommend and sell will work in a project. It is very important to us to have what I call "inventory integrity." In other words, what we carry to sell is what we would buy ourselves.I decided that I needed to take a break from work knitting and make something for myself. Laura Nelkin's latest mystery knitalong project, the Circo Cowl, is launching September 15.

Let's Rock the East Texas Fiber Festival!

Join us for the McKnittey Road Show at the East Texas Fiber Festival at the Pickers Pavilion in Lindale, Texas, Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We are going to be introducing some Collegiate Color kits and McHoliday projects!

Three Irish Girls is Beckoning!

Three Irish Girls Beckon has hit our shelves and we are in awe! When they called and said they were going to substitute Beckon for Adorn, I was a little skeptical. But, when I got the fiber I was so glad! It is a 2-ply superwash merino with high twist.

Vintage Find Friday

My friend Jeni scored the cutest knitting notion for me. It is a Raglan Sweater Wheel. You run across these wheels in games and children's books. You rotate a paper wheel behind or inside another paper wheel and line up words, pictures, or symbols and gives you an answer. I am sure there is a technical term for this device. If you know it, let me know. Well, in this case, it dials up a formula for a raglan sweater.

Hello and Goodbye, Black Pearl!

We have three new colors of Black Pearl Fingering in stock. Unfortunately, it is the last available fingering weight of Black Pearl available. The beautiful tencel and nano pearl powder fiber was produced in New Zealand and became too costly for the manufacturer to continue production. We are delighted to be able to offer some of the last of Black Pearl Fingering available.

The Circus is in Town!

We are very excited to announce the arrival of KnitCircus gradients in Greatest of Ease and Corriedale Sock bases.

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff!

At McKnittey, our core business is fingering and lace weight projects. While these size yarns may be intimidating at first, these yarns allow you more bang for the buck. You get more yard per skein and can accomplish more knitting from one skein.
