New 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.  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.

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.

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.

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

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.…/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.
