Still a good selection left!

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Cephalopod Yarns originally began as the Baltimore studio of The Sanguine Gryphon. When that company closed in late 2011, Cephalopod Yarns opened its doors with all of the original staff and a few new faces and now we are happy to say that Knitting Off Broadway is one of the first retail accounts!  
We are fully stocked in Bugga! and Skinny Bugga! yarn which is a merino, nylon, and cashmere blend used and loved by Stephen West and many others.  This yarn is going quite quickly, but who can resist deep colors with names like Bold Jumping Spider, Flamboyant Cuttlefish,  Dragon Tattoo, and Box Jellyfish?!
Ideas besides amazing socks?  Shawls and wraps of course!  Color Affection would work up nicely, as would a Modern Wrapper.  
A few ideas for the fingering weight yarn:
Mormorio is a great way to use two bold contrasting colors, or Froot Loop would be fun!
Some ideas for the true sport weight Bugga!

A lovely cardigan using 3-4 skeins Bugga
Oak Grove uses one skein, and Little Oak uses 1-4 skeins (goes all the way up to adult sizes!)
T.O.S.H. A.S.A.P
We have some of this A.S.A.P. yarn so you can knit your last bulky project while the weather is cold.  

A.S.A.P. is a 100% superwash merino wool, and we have it in stock in our favorite colors such as William Morris, Tart, Mansfield Garden Party, Victorian Gothic, Firewood, Cathedral, Flashdance, and badlands. Working up at a super bulky weight, A.S.A.P is perfect for a quick satisfaction project (rainbow twist anyone?).  This yarn is like Rasta, but a touch lighter, $22.25 for 90 yards. Each squishy soft skein is hand-dyed in small dye lots and machine washable.  We also like the LTYC Cowl, or the super bulky brioche cowl.

We also have loads of Prairie, and Pure Silk lace to get you going on a spring project.  We also have more tosh sock in the most popular colors including: Tart, Ink, William Morris, and Antler.  

Pure Silk Lace

Pure silk lace is a 100% tussah silk, 2-ply yarn  in generous 1,000 yard  skeins for $67 a skein.  We currently have this yarn in burnished, spectrum, whiskey barrel, duchess, baroque violet, wilted rose, esoteric, parchment, and begonia leaf.  

Rock Island is a great way to use one special skein of silk lace.  The Cliete Shawl is also lovely...
Churchmouse knows how to make the most out of fabulous yarn!  The bias before and after scarf or the beaded mohair scarf will make the most out of one skein!


When we first saw this yarn, we couldn't belive it was 100% wool!  The colors seem to glow and it feels like silk but it is 100% superwash single-ply merino.  Each skein has a very generous 840 yards for $25- let the lace knitting begin!   
Try the feather weight cardigan made in a single ply lace weight or a rockefeller  either project would be $50 for most sizes.

Lo-Lo Loves Knitters!

We are fully stocked for the season with new scents such as Spiced Fig, Winter Bliss, and Orange Vanilla.  Let Lo-Lo take care of all your winter skin issues!  We have both the large and travel size Lo-Lo body bar, travel kits, cuticle stick, lip balm and the heel cream!  The lip balm is priced right for stocking stuffers, and we have $1 samples again!

Easy Folded Poncho

We mean easy!  We have this knit up in Felted Tweed Dk and it is just simply fun to wear- and warm too!  This project can be knit with or without a cowl, in a variety of yarns, and can be worn in a variety of ways!  Yes, ponchos are back in style!

Lobster Pot Yarn

Bring a taste of Cape Cod home with this lush yarn dyed in small batches.  Her colors range from bold to subdued conjuring up the essence of a jaunt on the beach.  We have the lace weight which knit up into great ribbed mitts (we have some hear for you to try on) and the luxurious worsted weight that begs to be worn close to the skin.

Cool Kit!

These  lovely lacy shawls designed by Iris Schreier of Artyarns features two coordinated shades each of TRANQUILITY and ADORA . Each kit contains the pattern and specially-sized mini skeins of yarn to knit the shawl for $70 . This yarn feels wonderful and knits up relatively quickly on a size 9. The kit comes packaged in a plastic jewel box, perfect for storing your finished shawl, or you can give a special knitter you know the kit to knit!
