Changes for 2018

Thank you for shopping at The Knit Tree. We appreciate all our customers.  After over 45 years of operating The Knit Tree, in 2018, I will be semi-retiring.  My goal is to continue offering you quality custom knit products by narrowing down the number of knits we offer and by taking limited orders on garments (camo jackets, vests, and pants).  I will keep all the Winona Camo, 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

I am on a Mission. I posted the next two articles I wrote for Machine Knit America on The Knit Tree’s article page in pdf format under the Yarn Information Category. http://www.theknittree.com/articles.html

Article #9 “Polishing up with Stabilizing Agents” was written about knitting with monofil, sewing thread, elastic, and lycra®. Remember this was written in 1994 before digital cameras were in full swing. http://www.theknittree.com/documents/9mkav4n294_lycra1.pdf

Since I sell the lycra®. in my online store, I already updated this article with photos – so you can check out the updated version with photos http://theknittree.com/lycra.html

along with the published version with no photos, so I can wet your appetite to look forward to the other 23 published Machine Knit America articles to be updated with photos. The 10th Article was a practical application of using lycra®. in waistbands. Read more about lycra® in the product description at my online store. http://www.theknittree.com/…/spandex-stabilizer-lycra-trade…

lycra®. lycra® is used by machine knitters, Circular Sock Machine knitters, hand knitters and other crafts people to add that professional polish to their products.
