Be like Beata (the creator of Hedgehog Fiber), let your knitting show through your bag!

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

More Ito yarns just in
Including new colors in Kouki, Oragami, Tetsu, and Kinu!  
See what we carry  here!
Tami and Natalie used 5 colors as originally shown in the pattern, and you will need two cones each of four colors, and just one cone for the neck color. 
We have an ever changing selection of this yarn in stock, let us help you put together a customized color scheme ! 
Tami in hues of Blues.  See her project details  here, and Natalie in her "Neapolitan" version  here.  Which do you prefer?
Each sweater has been worn many times and they still look great!  Ito Kinu  yarn is a raw silk that feels like cotton!  You knit with the yarn held doubled so don't let its light weight scare you.  This is suitable for a newer sweater knitter, but you will need to pick up sleeve and neck stitches.   

Want to try Kinu yarn but don't want to knit a sweater?  Try the  Cepa wrap  which uses one cone each of  Kinu  in three colors.  Don't over think it, just chose three colors you like!  Natalie's on the left is always in the shop (shown in Cayenne Red, Angora, and Pine Soap) and  Stacy's  is on the right.  Stacy added some glittery  Kin Gin  to the gray section, and used one size larger needle to make a larger wrap.  Her other colors are Navy, and Azelea.  
Koigu Magique Cloak Knit-a-long!
Starting January 2017

We have this masterpiece in the store in the larger size for you to see, admire, and of course try on!  It will be here until mid August.  Why did we chose this stained glass cloak as a KAL?  So many of us have wanted to knit this for years, but starting it seems daunting, and finishing seems like a figment of the imagination.  However, when you break this project down over a years time, you need only knit 12 cubes a month which is totally doable!  Many customers have had much success knitting  the year long Fair Isle  blanket designed by  Marie Wallin, together we knitters can sure accomplish a lot!  

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!!).

Summer Faves off Broadway! 

Here is Natalie wearing Slope knit by Jeanice, and Apex knit by Gloria.  What great summer knits!  Slope uses 4 skeins of  Twig for the size shown here; medium short.  Apex  uses 4 skeins of  Shibui Linen  and is a wonderful layering piece.  
Donna is the queen of knitted wraps!  On the left is her  Storm Water Shawl  knit with three skeins of  Hand Maiden Swiss Silk.  On the right is her  Diagonal Lace Linen Wrap  which would be stunning knit with three skeins of  Shibui Twig. 
Here is Natalie in  Meridian  knit by Gloria pictured on the left, and  Helena  knit by Natalie on the right.  Gloria used 8 skeins of Shibui Rain  in Apple and everyone is loving this color on!  Natalie used  Shibui Twig held with Alchemy Tweedy in this quick knit!

Ruth is the master of Alchemy "magic" shibori style scarves.  Here is the  "new" magician's scarf  which features a crochet edge knit with Alchemy  Silken Straw (2 skeins one color),  Pagoda (one skein), andSanctuary (one skein).  Here is Natalie on the right with Donna's  Wisdom wrap  (a shop favorite) knit with 4 colors of  Silken Straw  (2 each) and  Sanctuary  (2 skeins of one color).  Donna had plenty of yarn to add an extra panel!  If you need help putting colors together, we are always happy to help!

Make an entrance in Flagstone (pictured on the left), a modern wrap featuring tonal segments knit in garter stitch in Twig. This project is a great accessory to knit in the summer, and even better to wear on cool nights, elevating your wardrobe for the season with an easy layering piece.  It uses one skein each of 7 different colors of Twig, and we have kitted it up in the colors as shown (and some other color ideas) in our online store here
Spectrum (pictured on the right) is the perfect wrap for summer weddings with stripes of Rain and Silk Cloud.  You can go bold for a pop of color; or neutral,  but you can't go wrong with sheer, soft stripes of beautiful yarns.  We have kitted this up in our online store here in a variety of colors.  You will need 3 skeins of Silk Cloud and 6 skeins of Rain.

Mother daughter knits!  Jan knit up this fun  Point of Libra Cowl  using 5 mini skeins, and Natalie made the matching  Point of Libra  shawl in a different palette which used 5 mini skeins of Madelinetosh, PLUS a full skein of the light gray.

Natalie knit her  Aranami shawl  in 5 colors of Koigu, but this would be a fun excuse to use mini skeins!  The  Buccaneer shawl  was designed for mini skeins, and you can choose between a little bit of lace, or a more solid look!

Unicorn Parallelograms  uses 20 different colors of Tosh Merino Light from the  Unicorn Mega Bundle, but Natalie used only 17 colors, and plans to use her remaining colors to knit a smaller Unicorn Stripes Cowl.  

Natalie is wearing  Gloria's Unicorn Stripes Cowl  which we have in the store!  She usedall 30 colors  and followed the directions to the letter!

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!
