Can you believe that the holidays are upon us?  We have been having fun finishing up projects , and getting in fun kits for the holidays.  We are fully stocked in chunky yarns for all your last minute needs.   Need a stocking stuffer for a knitter?  Some of our popular items are here.

 Need a Baby Gift?  Knit a hat in 5 hours or less!
Choose one of these hats that knit up quickly with Big Bad Wool Weepaca, a wonderfully soft superwash merino alpaca blend worsted weight yarn.


The Knotted Cabled Cap knits up in a flash using 1-2 skeins of Weepaca.  


The Fred and Ethel hats are as much fun to knit as they are to gift!  You can make a set with one each of three colors of Big Bad Wool, Natalie spiced it up with a few more colors.


This is the most jolly trio of hats featured here- imagine them in Christmas colors!  Each hat takes 2 skeins total for most sized of Big Bad Wool.  

Bring on the show shovels and winter winds- you will be ready for seve weather wearing one of these cowls!

All of the following samples are on display!  

These projects require 2-8 hours.  You have time this weekend don't you?
 
The Gisland Cowl is knit using every inch of one skein of ASAP on size 13 needles, and the Bulky Ribbed Cowl can be knit with just 90 yarns of any chunky yarn.



 

The Little Earth Quakes Cowl is knit on a 19 needle and in this sample Natalie used 1.5 skeins of Cascade Magnum.  On the right Natalie is wearing not one, but two of the Churchmouse very gifted cowl both in combinations of Alchemy Yarns, each different gauges.  

Knit a family of elves over the weekend!  Each elf took Natalie about an hour to complete.

Natalie knit this little family of Jolly Elves last year using both Rowan Fine Tweed, and Rowan Felted Tweed for the larger friends.  


 
Only have a few hours to knit?  Either of these cowls can easily be completed in under 4 hours (they took Natalie about 45 minutes each, but she had no distractions).  The Cowl on the left is the Frosty Cowl and uses only 120 yards of super chunky wool, she used two skeins of Blue Sky Bulky.  On the right is the Marshmallow Fluff Cowl which used one skein of Rasta.  

 
Tami knit up the Gaptastic cowl with 3 skeins of Rowan Brushed Fleece on a size 32" 13 needle, or for a luxurious version try three skeins of Tundra.
Natalie had to knit some samples using the new yarn from Malabrigo- Caracol.  She knit the Coze hat, and the Gaiter Cowl in under 3 hours each, but the yardage is just around 100 yards per project.

 
One skein of Tundra and 3 different sizes of needles will make this cute little cowl in a hurry!  We still have a nice selection of these yummy cowls from Jade Sapphire, and if you have a free day knit up this great Fair Isle hat with just 3 skeins of Woolstok!


Big Finishes for 2016!
We wanted to share some knitting achievements with you!  If you have some to share with us, please post them on our facebook pages, or send us an email!


A year later, Fair Isle Club I blanket is finished, and Natalie is having even more fun knitting for Club II!  

 
Donna finished her Stole 2.0 using Isager Wool 1, one skein each of 4 colors.  Natalie asked Brenda to knit this Meandering Shawl, in angora haze and skinny singles and ever since , Brenda has become addicted to brioche!

 
Natalie finished her Building Blocks in a timely manner using skinny singles and Tosh merino light, and Vicki finished her Bevel on size 5 needles in record time in Shibui Twig.


Ruth finished her Fiddlehead Mitts this fall!  She has been wearing this this winter since they are sport weight alpaca lined with Kidsilk Haze doubled.


Last but not least, Tami knit her Cromwell Pullover in under a week using 8 skeins of Woolstok.  She had so much fun that she is offering it as a basic sweater class!  This class will meet on Saturdays, January 28, February 11th, and 25th from 9:30-11:00 for $45 which does not include materials.  You will need to have your gauge swatch knit before class.  

Last Look-


The Find your Fade wrap has been very popular on Ravelry and features the lovely colors of HHF Skinny Singles.

pssst- just in: HHF Silk Merino Lace , and the latest painterly colors from Tosh in Sock and TML.

We wish you a wonderful holiday season and hope to see you soon!

Have you tried this new line of lotion bars we carry?  We like how Love and Leche uses fun shapes, and limited edition essential oil scents!  Perhaps more importantly is their story, and the high quality honey, beeswax, and goats milk they use.  Read more about them here.
Shown above in the original scents that are back for a limited time only: Citrus, and Citrus/Rosemary.
Lavender/Rose is full of essential oils and of course Natalie loves the cute critter shape.  To shop these bars in our online store click here.

Have you seen the latest accessory from Hedgehog Fibers?  Introducing gem gauges in a variety of shapes and colors!  Click here to shop them in our online store.  They come with a chain so you can attach it to your knitting bag and hopefully won't loose it!


Ore, Quartz, and Crystal shapes.  All shapes available in all colors shown here.  We are also restocked in all your favorite colors in Skinny Singles, and Sock.


Add a little Cashmere to your life this fall!
Who doesn't love the look and feel of cashmere?   What is an added bonus for knitters is that the cashmere you can buy in a yarn store, is of superior quality and thickness to anything you could buy in a store for the same cost.  Also, when you give the gift of cashmere, the  recipient   immediately  knows that this is a very special gift that is to be treated with care.  We are happy to offer you some wonderful and fun kits to please everyone on your list.


For Him and for Her scarf kits
Cashmere-Scarf-for-Him Cashmere-Scarf-for-Her
These kits are a classic and we happy to offer them to you again this fall.  Each kit has 7 scarf patterns, and 300 yards of luscious 8-ply cashmere that all knit up quickly on a 7-9 needle.  See what we have in stock now  here .  

New Cashmere Gradient Cowl Kits


What a fun fall weekend project to knit up now for the holidays for yourself, or for a loved one.
Each kit has 6 mini skeins in fun colorways and a pattern for the endless ombre scarf (which can easily be converted into a cowl)!  To see what we have in stock click  here .

New Peeeps Cashmere and Wool Cowl Kits
Peeeps, Tangelo Peeeps, Licorice
One touch, and you will be sold!  This is quite possibly the softest yarn we have ever had in the store and it is surprisingly 60% wool, and 40% cashmere from Jade Sapphire.  Each kit has three balls of fluffy yarn (2 of one color, and 1 of a contrasting color) and a pattern to knit a striped cowl in the round.  Jan knit up the shop sample during a weekend car trip (Natalie will block it this weekend) and really enjoyed it.  She used the Blue Floss and Meringue combination.  See what we have in stock now  here .

Put on a poncho this season! 

We have   many of the following styles in our store for you to try on- literally a poncho for every age and body type.  We are fully stocked with the Churchmouse, Blue Sky, and Gotham Poncho Patterns (and some others too!).

Each day this week, customers have walked in the shop asking if we have any good patterns for ponchos.  We are so delighted that many of you want to knit a poncho this fall!  They are   generally easy knitting with a variety of yummy yarns.  You can wear most ponchos two ways; seam on the shoulder, or in the front.  The staff loves to wear them because they are easy to work in, and keep us at the perfect temperature no matter the weather outside.  We do not have all of the yarns featured in these samples in our online store, but we have them fully stocked in our shop.  We have no problem taking orders over the phone (260.422.9276) for our long distance shoppers!     


 
Many of you knit the  Two Harbors poncho  last year in "Extra" yarn, and we still love the  Back Bay Poncho  that would look great knit in  Blue Sky Bulky Alpaca, or Rowan Brushed Fleece for a poncho with more drape.


 

Vicki knit up the  smaller size reversible ribbed poncho on the left in Shibui  Pebbleand  Dune  held together, and  Brenda knit  the larger size poncho in  Organik

 

This is the poncho that started it all for us here at Knitting off Broadway.  The  easy folded poncho  that has an optional cowl, and can be knit in a wide variety of yarns.  These are both Vicki's ponchos, one knit in Mountain Colors Mountain Goat, and the other is knit without the cowl with Blue Sky Melange 100% sport weight alpaca. 

 

The original shop poncho sample  is knit with 6 balls of  Rowan Felted Tweed.  We also love it knit in  Acadia, or Shibui  Maai.  On the right is the  Smocked lace wrapwhich we have knit up with two skeins of  Manos Lace, but we would really love it knit with three skeins of  Pebble

More to come soon- including fall classes like a beginner sweater class, an advanced Fair Isle yoke sweater class, and other events too!

Remember our regular store hours are Tuesday-Friday 11:00-5:00 and Saturday 11:00-3:00.

We just got these "Invisible" HHF bags in!  Shop them here, and see her yarns we have in stock here!




Coop Knits Volume I and II kits 

Warm up your needles, these little projects are great to knit in the summer heat, and will keep you warm this winter!  Natalie personally loves the drastic weather in NE Indiana because she really has a   need  to knit literally every type of garment and accessories!  Ranging from summer linens, and winter wools!  She has even been known to knit Fair Isle or other intricate accessories while sitting out in the sun!   Do you knit in unusual places?  If so share your story on our  Facebook page!  


Pictured above is our Toasty Kit option II- with enough yarn to knit: Bedale, North-Allerton, Aiskew hat OR mittens, Carthorpe, Ripon, Catterick,and Eppleby.  To see these patterns click  here


Pictured above is the yarn for Toasty Kit III where you will have enough yarn to knit exactly as shown in the book: Kettlesing, Low Laithe, and Birswith, and we think you will have enough yarn to knit other patterns too!  To look inside this book click  here.

Why are these Toasty collections so great for accessories?  Fair Isle, twisted stitches, and cables makes for toasty knits since warm air is trapped by the textured stitches, or by the floats from the stranded technique.  We like to keep the lighter color (or pop color) in our left hand so it lays on top of the other color making it stand out.  You know you are knitting Fair Isle correctly when your yarns are not tangled with each other.  Each ball should not interfere with the other as you knit.  Each hand is "assigned" a color for the entire project.  We will be offering both beginner, and advanced Fair Isle classes this fall (which will be soon!!).

We are happy to have the Shibui Winter Trunk Show in until December 28th
We are fully stocked in the yarns for these fabulous feeling knits!  

 
Facade knit with three skeins each of Maai, and Stacatto held together, and Motif knit with 6 skeins of Dune.

 
Emboss is knit with Maai held doubled, and Truss is knit with Maai and Pebble held together and is available in two lengths.



The Spire hat is a great fun gift, knit with one skein of Stacatto and Maai held together.  We love the unexpected edging on Trace, a soft alpaca sweater knit in Maai, or Baby Alpaca DK and pebble for the side ribs.  

   
Incribe has a broken rib pattern to add texture to the deep-v pullover knit with Staccato and Maai held together.  Natalie has Cornice in her que for 2017!  It is knit with Silk Cloud and Dune held together.

 

We have Volute in two sizes for you to try in the store!  It is knit with just 1 skein of Cima, and 3-4 skeins Silk Cloud.  Column is a lovely pullover knit with Dune and Cima



This little trunk show is here for a short amount of time!  We love the adult sized sweaters, but we think they look even better in pint sized versions!  We were all impressed with the unique details in each sweater.  
We have this book in stock, or you may purchase an e-book here.



These little sweaters are knit in fingering weight- worsted weight yarns.  Stop in and let us help you pick something out!




Two completed shop samples are designed by Lori Versaci from her new collection "Sisterhood".  The entire collection is so unique it was hard to decide which one to knit, so Natalie choose two... for now! 

 
Spellman  is a fisherman rib tunic with seed stitch and i-cord details knit in luscious 100% alpaca.  Natalie used 5 skeins of Shibui 100% Alpaca creating a smooth and uniform garment.  The photo on the right was knit in  Knightsbridge  which has a heathered look, and is more loosely spun yarn knitting into a less dense fabric.  


Moore  has enchanted many customers already.  They love the simple construction with a split back and i-cord edges, plus did we mention the yarn is amazing?  Natalie hasn't knit with  Road to China Light  in a few years, and after a few stitches, she was instantly hooked on the feel of this yarn making this simple sweater a real pleasure to knit.  



Beech Hill  has been on Natalie's knit list since she saw it advertised on the back of a magazine this past spring.  She had a great time knitting it, and thinks she will get to wear it often this fall.  It is knit with 7 skeins of  Acadia, and is a relaxing and relatively quick knit on a size 8 needle.

 














These adorable kits are suitable for the advanced beginner.  Each kit includes directions for knitting in the round, or back and forth.  These precious patterns are sold only in the kits.  

Collect them all!  We already have Emile in the store;  Natalie still needs to assemble her Marcel and Lisette!  Ruth is taking Hector with her on vacation!  What fun little friends!
