Have you heard?  We are stocking Spincycle Yarns!

We are happy to say we finally are a Spincycle stockist!


I am happy to say that I have just placed our second order to include new colorways, restocks on colorways that we have already sold out, and lots of their yarn Wilder in each color.  We currently have a really nice selection of their worsted weight super-wash 3-ply merino Dream State, and some Sport Weight Dyed in the Wool.  Follow us on Instagram @knittingoffbroadway so you will know when the next order arrives! 
Natalie recently knit two fun hats from one skein of Dream state in the color Truth Bomb.  Each hat looks wildly different!  The yarn is really nice quality; it is obvious that they work closely with their mill to maintain very high standards.  This yarn is very soft and fun.  I really wish I could knit everything in it for a little bit...
 
The ordering process is very different from any other, but the yarns are always deeply saturated and super soft super-wash merino.  Since they own their own mill and strive to be as efficient as possible, we are only allowed to place wholesale orders 3-4 times a year, and only during a set number of days.  I am telling you this because even though I placed a very larger order with certain colorways and projects in mind, we get only a portion of this order, and it consists of whatever colorways meet the needs of the most shops when they are dying orders.  This reminds me of how Koigu was 10 years ago; you would place an order and you wouldn't know what or when you would get the yarn, just that it would be really pretty when you did.

Don't forget we will be open the following Saturdays for Spring:
March 11, and April 8
from 11-3

Pressed Flowers Cowl

Natalie has started hers and is making the smallest size using just one skein of Dream State, and one skein of Rowan Pure Cashmere.

Geometer Cowl

With two skeins of Dyed in the Wool and 260 yds of a more subdued sport (like Road to China light or Aranmore light) you can make this fun cowl that is Fair Isle in the round.  

Join Julia for her first group class!  
The Flax Pullover



This is a free pattern (click the image to view details on Ravelry), so you can see if it is something you would like to knit.  This class is suitable for knitters who are proficient at CO and BO, knitting and purling, and basic increases.  This class will meet on March 11 from 9:30-11:00, and April 8th from 10:00-11:00 with a class fee of $50.  No supplies are included in the class fee and you must purchase your aran weight yarn from our store.  We are happy to help you decide which size to make when we help you pick out your yarn.  Just think, this sweater is about the same yardage as two scarves.  You can do it!
  We just got a huge restock of Madelinetosh Triple Twist, and Rowan Kid Classic is a lovely choice as well as Blue Sky Woolstok. 
This class is has quite a bit of homework in it so you will need to knit for  at least an hour a day at home.  In the first class you will cast on, join in the round, work your ribbing and establish your increases.  If you are a slower knitter, please come to class with your ribbing complete ready to start your increases.  You MUST use a long tail CO for this project.  If you do not know how to do this but want to join the class, please arrange for a private lesson before class. 
In the first class Julia will demonstrate how to put your sleeves on a holder, and CO for the underarms as well as discuss the best ways to add new yarn.
In the second class, you will pick up your sleeves and knit in the round on double points or magic loop and Julia will discuss blocking your finished sweater and how to weave in ends. 
We are open tomorrow from 10-4 if you are really excited to join this class stop by or give us a call 260.422.9276.

Please note that we reserve the right to cancel the class if less than 3 people have signed up one week before the start date.  No refunds are given for class fees unless we cancel the class.  You can return unwound yarn per our usual store policy.  This class meets outside of regular hours so please be on time and park closely to one another upon arrival.  If you miss a class and need help, you are responsible for our regular in store lesson policy of $25 per thirty minutes.  As always, we are happy to do a quick spot check that takes less than 10 minutes for free, time permitting.
White Bronze Closures back in stock
 

We are thrilled that we have a total refresh of Jul shawl cuffs, shawl pins, and shawl sticks.  We have not yet listed EVERYHING on our website because we got only one of each due to so many new combinations of leather color and design! 
You can browse most of what we have here.  Nothing finishes off your project like these stunning sticks and pins.  

Many of you have knit with the yarn many times...

For those of you who haven't it is a great choice for quick knitting accessories and baby gifts.  It is a superwash merino and alpaca blend that knits up quickly on size 9-11 needles.  You can machine wash on cold, and preferably lay flat to dry.  
"Ikigai" (pronounced icky-guy) is the Japanese philosophy of having a source of value in one's life that makes everything worthwhile.  It's your reason to get out of bed in the morning.  Ikigai is often represented as the center of a Venn diagram overlapping what you love, what you are good at, what the world needs and what you can be paid for.  Knitting off Broadway is certainly my Ikigai.  
If you didn't know, this yarn line is owned by Pam Powers who has visited our shop, and designs the cutest patterns that really do reflect her cheery and playful personality.  We are thrilled that Pam is designing more and more for babies and children since her colors and small format skeins are great for playing with color.  A.Opie, and The Brown Stitch also have wonderful patterns for this yarn.   
We also have MORE hat kits packaged in cute little Ikigai branded shoppers in the store that I do not have listed online.   The color and pom-pom combinations are endless!   
Natalie has knit up many various samples in this yarn and hopes you can stop in soon and check them out!  
Also, we will be at the Artlink Artists mart this year AND their curated holiday shop if you would like to purchase some already made gifts!

Thank you for choosing to shop locally for yarn and notions since November 2007! 

As a knitter, you can get very anxious when you hear how many days are left until the holidays...

     Don't worry, I won't tell you!  I have to admit, I have been stress free about my holiday knitting for many years.  I will knit a special request for my mom or grandma, but I know everyone else does not need a hand knit every year.  To be honest, I have some people in my family who say, "I do not want a handknit" OR "I love the hat and cowl you made me10 years ago so much, that it is all I wear and it still looks great.  I don't need anything else."
     This little newsletter is more about things you don't need to knit, or things that would make a great gift not-knit.

We will continue to maintain our regular hours throughout the holiday season.
Wednesdays and Fridays 10:00-4:00
