Off Broadway

And as a last bit about my trip to Fort Wayne, I couldn't resist mentioning their fantastic yarn store, Knitting Off Broadway. This is probably one of the best I've been to. They had the right mix of gorgeous yarns that included some gorgeous yarns I could afford. They had an astounding collection of terrific patterns, and Natalie and Tami knew everything that was in the shop and where to find it.

The stone sheep that meet you at the door (in the back in case you go) are perfect for a yarn shop. Who needs stone lions?

I have to find one of these old hotel mail slot thingies to hold my knitting yarn. Emily is gasping right now at the thought of that much knitting yarn, but I probably could fill at least half of it with what is stuffed in the bottom of my closet and in the ottoman in the living room right now.




Because I was traveling light on the trip to Fort Wayne, I bought a bit more yarn than I could stuff in my little bag. Natalie, being the great business woman she is, was quick to say she could ship it to me.  A few days after I got home this pile of yarn arrived in the mail. It was Christmas all over again. I can't wait to dig into some of those new Steven West patterns Natalie!

  1. Oooh! I love yarn shops to the chagrin of my husband and children. I love the blue and the multi color yarn you bought. The combination of the three is beautiful.

    I have one of those old mail slots in my barn that I inherited from my dad, and would love it in my studio. It is a behemoth and alas is won't fit. One of these days when I get a bit studio, here is comes!

    1. Hi Natalie! I still haven't knit the lace-weight but look at it often. ;-) The rest of it became baby hats in a flash. Lovely store, lovely yarn. I'll visit again next time I'm in Indiana!
