Knitting Displays for a Yarn Shop

I’ve been busy knitting samples for a yarn shop in my area.
Yarnhouse Knits in the NoDa district of Charlotte, NC.

After a friend introduced me to the yarn shop owner, he quickly asked me to knit some displays for his shop. I was happy to oblige. cloud9

So far, here are the things I have knit for the shop:

Handspun Ribbed Hat with Queensland Kathmandu Chunky

Gloria Cowl with Mirasol Yarn Hacho

Scalloped Lace Baby Cap and Mary Jane Booties with Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool

A market bag, using Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima

Maribou Felted Purse with Sweaterkits Merino Alpaca

French Scarf with Louisa Harding “La Salute” and Universal Yarn “Curly Mohair”

Lotus Leaf Scarf with Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk

I’m still making a lace scarf and a Christmas stocking.
I’ll post photos and details of them later. :slight_smile:

Very nice work !

Those are lovely, Sandy! :yay:

Great job!! They are all beautiful! :slight_smile:

Waaaaaay to go, Sandy! Wowzer. You’ve been clickin’ away, haven’t you!!! Nice stuff.

My favs: the green Silky Wool baby set, and the bag with the ‘guinea hen’ feathers!

Beautiful work Sandy!! Love the baby set especially - so sweet!

Amazingly lovely work, Sandy. Couldn’t pick a favorite, love them all.

How nice to be paid to do what you love!

Thank you all for the sweet compliments! :muah:

I love the baby set also. So SOFT!!
And the felted bag was so quick and felted very easily. The marabou trim is luxurious and rich-looking. Just love it! :heart:


It is AMAZING! I’ve learned a lot too. I want the projects to turn out perfectly, so they will be a good example of the patterns and kits he is selling.

Sandy, where is this in Charlotte? I am in Rock Hill SC and our little shop closed so I have only been going to Rainy Day Creations in Pineville or just to our Michales for yarn. Would love to check this shop out sometime

Yarnhouse is in the NoDa district of Charlotte, on North Davidson Street. (NoDa is short for North Davidson) It’s an update, urban, artsy area. Not the safest part of town, but very hip and “with it”.

The shop itself is clean and sleek, has a nice selection of yarns, and a decent amount of nice notions. Chris (one of the owners) is friendly, and fluent in English and Spanish.

Let us know if you go to visit - and tell us how you like it.

You also might enjoy going to Cottage Yarn in Mint Hill. My cousin, Sara owns that shop, and is very friendly and helpful. The other shop workers are wonderful as well. She has a great selection of yarns and supplies, as well as a discount porch with yarn at 40% off.


Your items are lovely and the workmanship is super. Thanks for showing them to us.


Thanks Elaine! :hug:

Thanks for the info. I will check it out someday and let you know what I think. It is always fun to check out different shops.

Bravo on your work! I give you 2 rounds of appluse!:yay: :yay:

:thumbsup: I agree! Whenever I find out about a new yarn shop, I am THERE!

Thank you! Thank you!

Very pretty Shandeh. I especially like the hat and cowl. I made one of those lotus leaf scarves once in forest green sport wt. wool, Brown Sheep I think it was.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Oooo, I bet that looks nice! I love forest green. :inlove:

Love it all!!!

Great job! My favorite is the purse, very classy. And of course I always like baby things.
