Close Knit is Online!

Hello everyone!

So sorry to be absent for the last several weeks! I (Leah) have been a little swamped with my other job as a science teacher, and the blog has languished a bit as I tried to keep up there.

The Close Knit staff has been busy at work, taking your phone and email orders, popping packages in the mail, and facilitating safe curb-side pick-ups. We have been posting on our Instagram page with lots of ideas and new stuff and inspiration, and we have all certainly been knitting!

Our shop website looks a little different these days, as we join the world of online shopping! It is a slow process, but new yarns and kits are appearing regularly on the front page. We hope these will inspire you and give you an idea of what we have to offer in the shop, even if it's not time for all of you to join us there in the physical space yet.

Right now, we have someone in the shop from 11-1 every day to facilitate ordering and get packages ready, and you can email Sally at with questions about yarn or ordering. We are monitoring and considering all of the factors as we move ahead, and we will certianly keep you posted about what our next steps will be.

We thank you all so much for your continued support of our little shop and our fiber community in Portland. It means the world to us that you continue to turn to us for your yarny needs!
