6 more days…

SIX DAYS! 😅

We’re just 6 days away from opening the doors to the culmination of a lifelong vision.

The new Knit Stars Flagship Store is my 6,000-square-foot celebration of yarn lovers everywhere.

A place where we can come to connect with others like us. Squish the yarn. Play with color.

Create. Dream. Stargaze.

There are 3 ways for you to celebrate with us…you can do 1, 2 or even all 3!

1. Join us for the In-Person Event along with 10 Knit Stars this Friday or Saturday, Oct. 1-2. RSVP and grab your time slot here(sparkly star masks will be offered at the door 😊)

2. Join us for the Virtual Event Tuesday, Oct. 5 (it’s $25 to get access to the event and you get a $25 credit, so it’s essentially free!) Plus there will be a recording. Sign up here.

3. Indulge in a Grand Opening Celebration Kit! Loaded with only-at-Knit-Stars goodies, including our new bespoke Loops Luxe Light Royal Alpaca/Silk blend in your choice of 6 colors. It’s like a yarn party in a bag – a $200+ value for just $99. The first 50 bags ordered will include a bonus LolaBean enamel pin. Grab your favorite kit color here.

For those of you coming to the Grand Opening in person, I made a little video to show you how to get to us. (Hint: There’s free valet parking and an elevator!)

However you plan to celebrate with us, know we will be sending out big vibes of gratitude and love for all that’s come before…and all that is to come. ✨

Knit Stars Masterclass Tip

Carson Demers is serious about two things: Ergonomics and cashmere socks!

When working in a physical therapy clinic, he had an ergonomics-related injury and had to go through the process of rehabilitation.  It was then that he decided to bring ergonomics to the knitting community that he so loved. Carson is on a mission to help knitters knit for as long as they want to knit.

In this simple but important tip from Knit Stars Season 3, Carson shares a great way to protect yourself by placing movement reminders right into your pattern and onto your needles. Especially on a project as repetitious as socks (cashmere of course…), small reminders can make a huge difference in your long-term knitting health.

And for even more tips from Carson, grab his book Knitting Comfortably: The Ergonomics of Handknitting by Carson Demers. Every knitter needs this on their shelf!


Knit Stars Club members are getting treated to a very special VIP event with our most recent Kit Designers, Adella Colvin of LolaBean Yarn Co. and Francoise Danoy of Aroha Knits.

Just before our Virtual Event on Tuesday October 5th, there will be a special, members-only, live Q&A session to discuss their recent Club kit collaboration and a little sneak peek of the new Knit Stars Flagship Store before the rest of the world gets a chance to see it in all of its glory.
