Store Message

Thanks everyone for your support of our custom knits. We look forward to 2021 being a great year and hope to continue to support the needs of our awesome customers.

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 50 years of operating The Knit Tree.  I am still phasing into my semi retirement plan.  My goal is to continue offering you quality custom knit products by narrowing down the number of knits we offer.  For the present time I will not be taking custom orders for the knit Winona Camo™ garments: jackets, pants, vests, hoodies, ect. on the web site until I get caught up with my existing orders. . When I get these caught up, I will put the Winona Cardi, Vest and Cargo Pants back on web site since I have had so many requests to do so hopefully by March 2021   I will keep some of  the Winona Camo™ hat category, the Native American, and Yarn, Kits and Patterns categories. I will be updating the online store to reflect these changes and look forward to hearing from you in the coming years.

Have a Great Day, Sharon
