Knitting in the Loop is dedicated to helping members of our community and others throughout the world.
We have donated afghans created by our knitters as a group to The Houston Area Women’s Center & Ronald McDonald House. Our knitters have made hats for service men & women in Iraq & Afghanistan, made Chubby Chirpies to aid the Houston Zoo in supporting penguins harmed by an oil spill in New Zealand, and knitted elephants for sale to support research and conservation efforts.
Throughout the course of the year, we knit hats for preemies and neonatal needs at Texas Children’s Hospital.
Click on the link to obtain the pattern for the “minie” hat. When you’re finished, bring the hat to the shop. Each month we collect all hats and take them to the hospital.
If you and your group want to meet to knit for special projects, we would be glad to provide a space for that. Just give us a call and you can reserve a space.
Sit and Knit Every Thursday
5:30 pm to 7:30 pm Thursday night is Sit & Knit night at Knitting in the Loop. Bring your knitting or crocheting and join the fun.
Our talented staff is always happy to help you solve a problem. We suggest you call first and make an appointment with someone or sign up for a B &B class. Without an appointment our staff's first priority must be to customers in the shop and you might not receive the attention you deserve. The ladies and gentlemen sitting & knitting, especially on Thursday evenings are usually very generous with their expertise.
All returns are for store credit only & must be accompanied by your receipt. Books, patterns, & special orders may not be returned. Needles may be returned within 2 weeks. That gives you time to see if you already have that size needle or to knit a gauge swatch to know you purchased the correct size. The needles must be in their original packaging and the packaging can't be damaged - open carefully. Clearly unused yarn in good condition may be returned for up to six months. Yarn that has been wound may not be returned.
Special orders must be paid for in advance and may not be returned. If the order is for a yarn or color we don't normally stock, you must purchase the vendor's required minimum amount.
Winding Yarn purchased Elsewhere
We are happy to wind yarn that you have purchased elsewhere. Up to 250 yards - $1 per ball 251 - 500 yards - $3 per ball 501 - 750 yards - $4 per ball 751 and over - $5 per ball We cannot rewind previously wound yarn as we cannot assume responsibility for yarn which is tangled, knotted, or damaged. As laceweight, mohair, an novelty yarns are difficult to wind using our equipment (which is not automated), there will be an additional charge of $1 per ball. We reserve the right to refuse to wind homespun yarn as it may have been processed with chemicals that could collect on our equipment, damaging it and any other yarns wound after. Thank you for your cooperation.
For the instructors to be prepared with adequate supplies, we appreciate if your class reservation is made and paid for in advance. If you have a conflict after registration, please call and the instructor will reschedule with you. If you have a special project you would like to see as a class or if there is a class that has been taught before but isn't on the current calendar, contact us to schedule that class at a time convenient to you and the instructor. Check our CLASS page for the list of classes and descriptions.
