Taste a little yarn with us:
Friday, November 18th from 12:00-4:00 p.m, and Saturday November 19th from 11:00 A.M.-12:30 P.M.

How do you taste yarn?  By knitting with it of course!  Even with just a few stitches you will know if it is love at first stitch... or not!  During the specified times, we will have skeins of Woolstok out on the big table for you to knit with, and pictures of projects hanging nearby so you can dream about what to knit next!  This is a free event to celebrate a lovely new yarn from Blue Sky Fibers (formally Blue Sky Alpacas).  Be sure to bring your favorite needles to taste the yarn with (sizes 6-10 are best).  This is an informal event which a great way to drop in and meet some other knitters,  We have specified times since we have on-going knitting classes happening on those days too.  On Saturdays ONLY you may park across the parking lot at Apex Surveying.
 What makes this yarn special?  It is a worsted weight wool of the finest cut of fleece resulting in a soft, light , and slightly heathered fabric.  To read more about this birth of this yarn click here.  Please note that this yarn comes in two different sized hanks: 50g (123 yards) in all 22 colors, and 150g (370 yards) in the 5 natural colors, that is why we are listing the total yardages needed for the following projects.  

We will not have the Woolstok yarn or trunk show pieces out in the store until Friday the 19th, but then the trunk show  pieces will be on display till the 26th of November.  You may order the yarn now through our online store here and please enter "pick up" in the coupon window if you wish to stop in and pick up your order.  We will have all 21 Woolstok colors in the store for this event!  We know that some of you have already had a sneak peek at this new yarn from the 21 Color Slouch Hat kit!

Kit the extra-long Silver Bay Scarf in a neutral color adding a bright contrasting extra-long fringe, or vice versa – the Woolstok palette offers a broad variety of options. The intermediate level Elongated Twist stitch creates a beautiful, drapey fabric. Cast on and before you know it, you’ll have ten feet of stylish wooly warmth to wrap yourself up in.  You will need 738 yards of the main color, and 123 yards or less for the fringe.    

Wrap yourself in yards of cozy Woolstok. Fun to knit, fun to wear, the Endless Wrap is a long swath of lofty, textural knitted fabric. Panels of knit/purl and yarn over patterns make this a good next-step project for a beginner knitter.  You will need 1100 yards for this project, but you could easily knit it shorter since this project is knit vertically, like a normal scarf.

Bands of seeded stockinette and garter stitch ridges give structure and texture to the Tonka Bay Toque. Knit on circular needles in warm, but never scratchy, Wookstok, this hat has a loose fit, high crown and festive tasselsThe seed stitch panel adds visual interest.  You will need 246 yards for this hat, and some scraps for the contrast color.

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.

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.

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.

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 now have a group on Ravelry!  What is Ravelry you ask?  It is a website for knitters, by knitters.  It's a great place to get inspiration, see what everyone is knitting, check for pattern errors or send/view questions to someone who has knitted a project already!  You do need to sign up, but it's free and worth it!  (http://www.ravelry.com)




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.

 











Do you need something to knit using the new  Tosh Colors, or new  Fino Colors?  We do!
These are some ideas for single-ply yarn, and these projects would be nice to take on vacation!   
 
The Loop shawl  is a great excuse to use a crazy variegated such as  Beach Bonfire, without the finished shawl being too wild!  On the right is the  Kline Shawl  which is in the latest issue ofKnit.Wear  (we have plenty of copies in the store) and Natalie loves it in the colors as shown and she thinks she should knit on up in  Hedgehog Skinny Singles!

 

Exploration Station  is a fun way to play with color, as is the  Doodler .  Natalie knit the Doodler during a trip to TN this past November.

 
Cladonia   or  Imagine When   would be lovely with the sheen of silk from  Manos Fino.



We still have sweater quantities left in the newly discontinued  Organik by the Fibre Compan y
From Left to right, Forest, Painted Desert, Yellowstone, Desert Rose, Heather Moorland, and Holly Berry.

 
Natalie finished her  Maple Bay Cardigan  in Organik, and Ruth knit her  Rocky Coast  in Organik a few years ago and wears it often.


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!
