This year we have our friend Rhichard Devrieze  (a pioneer in speckled yarn) visiting us from Canada with a trunk show, and of course his beautiful hand dyed yarns.  Once you meet him, you will understand the skeins behind the man.  He is a wealth of yarn knowledge and his enthusiasm is contagious.  If you stop in on Friday, or Saturday you can enter to win a prize from Rhichard.

To gear up for this event, and to make room for new Spring and Summer yarns to come, our sale section is overflowing with great deals on end of season yarns, or discontinued yarns/colors.  Stop in often because our sale section changes quite frequently.   At the moment we have some Blue Sky Bulky, Woolfolk Hygge, Anzula Cloud, Rowan Kidsilk Haze, Arranmore, and Manos Silk Blend.

Yarns and kits to celebrate LYS day!
The following items will be available starting this Saturday.  However, we are discouraged from selling the following yarns and kits on line.  Feel free to place a phone order (260.422.9276) if you can't make it in!  We know that many of you live far away but we are still  your local yarn store.

Tanda is a free LYS day with purchase scarf pattern and is a new way to use the Trigo kit (which we have in stock) on a size 7 needle.  We also have a large selection of Manos Silk Blend on sale.  The Maremoto wrap is also knit in Silk Blend from the Mentolat kit re-imagined, but we say why not add 2 colors to a Amaranto kit!  We think these alternative pattern are great since the kits are so enticing that you want to buy more than one!  Stripes and modular knitting are easy, yet interesting.  

These are the two LYS day colors

Each kit is $40 and equals a full skein of Fino which is $31.

Trying to figure out what to knit in this weather is confusing!

     Natalie has been wanting to share with you some spring knits, but when it looks like we are in a snow globe it is hard to get away from wonderful wools!  This newsletter has inspiration for both hot and cold weather knits; so no matter what it is doing outside, you will have something fun on your needles.
     We are gearing up for summer here- new cottons, new patterns, and new notions are arriving weekly.  We are very excited to host the Shibui SS18 collection early June, and Donna will be back soon from her winter escape.  We are having fun with the large braided skeins of Manos Silk Blend that are hanging in the store.  We have two of the above samples on display to inspire you, and they are all fun and relaxing knits!  
    People constantly ask the KOB staff what we are working on- Tami, Vicki, and Natalie are knitting NEW Shibui Spring/Summer 2018 patterns, Tami, Natalie, and Jennifer are knitting Fair Isle Yoke Sweaters, Ruth and Tami are knitting Fair Isle Mittens, and all of us are always working on at least one shawl, one scarf, and one other accessory.  We need projects to suit our state of mind on a daily basis.  Some days you don't want to think, other days the light is so poor that you can't do color work, some days you want to challenge yourself or tackle a project that is near completion.  Whatever your mood, we have a project for you!

Blue Sky Rosewood DPNS have been discontinued.  Our sale section is quite full to make room for the new spring yarns.  This includes: Milla Mia, Mountain Colors Loopy Mohair, Shibui Dune, random fingeringweight, and discontinued colors of Kidsilk Haze, Blue Sky Sport, and Acadia.  

Start Shopping the new Kits


New Shibui Yarn- Fern

Brushed to downy softness, Fern is a matte cotton yarn spun from 100% certified organic fiber, yielding a lightweight fabric with impeccable drape.  Click here to see the look book.  Which do you want to knit next?  Did you know Natalie knit the Areca vest sample for Shibui featured on the pattern?  

New notions from Coco Knits

Everyone loved the cute little boxes filled with stitch markers, so we decided to add more notions designed for knitters, by a knitter.  Stop in or click the image to see what else we ordered.


New Fibre Co. Yarn-  Luma

Plant-based fibers mixed with silk and wool provide a built-in layer of warmth in winter, yet lightness when required in warmer temperature.  This is a perfect yarn for Indiana most of the year.  Natalie and Tami are both knitting this yoked sweater.

Jul Silver- Celtic Collection

Jul Silver continues to produce innovative designs to keep our hand-knits in place.  Her new lightweight shawl sticks seem to really stay put; we think the new Celtic collection channels our inner "Outlander".

Just in from Woolfolk- new and limited edition colors of LUFT and cast on LUFT Collection III!   


This batch is much more saturated than the other colors, meaning the cotton outer tube is dyed to match instead of contrast.  The latest patterns designed especially for this yarn are equally stunning and beg to be knit on a dreary day.  Shop this yarn in our online store here.  To view the new collection, click here.

Here are two of our favorite new patterns for Luft.  To see more pattern ideas click here.  Dark Cloud is a dream sweater: So quick and easy to make, and so cozy and fun to wear!  We love the shirt tail hem and simple garter stitch.  Like a Feather cardigan lets the yarn shine and show its true nature - it really feels like a feather: soft and light yet warm and wonderful to wear. Little details with garter stitch bands and broken rib cuffs highlight the beauty of this simple design.
