GREAT WEEKEND!!! Thanks to @leadingmenfiberarts for bringing their gorgeous yarns and spending a couple days with us!! Friday night we raised $560 in donations for @outreachinc and the shop will match that amount! For a total donation $1120.00!! 😍#mycustomersarethebest❤️ Saturday we held the first overnighter in over a year and a half!! It was so wonderful to get back together in this relaxed/ vaccinated way! THIS IS WHAT VACCINATIONS DO FOR US!!! They allow us to be together and enjoy an evening! The next overnighter will be February 26, 2022! ( limited space). It was so fun to see the different projects and colors emerging from the MAKS Advent Calendar 2021! The yarns were dyed by Leading Men Fiber Arts and they are all so beautiful! The last pic is my day 4😍! The 2nd picture is of @liza.crane in her hat knit with a blank she dyed and held with Leading Men Mohair Silk! #happyandsafeholidays😷♥️🎄 #leadingmenfiberarts #massaveknitshop #knittingovernighter👏🏻 #supportsmallbusiness #indiedyersofinstagram

Happy Holidays Knit Friends!

Yes, ’tis the season. As we’re all rushing around getting ready for the holiday season, we’d like to offer two opportunities for you to get your Holiday shopping done.

Friday, November 26, 2021

It’s Black Friday, and we’re offering 20% off yarn purchases (excluding MAKS and Wabash Woollen Works items). Just shop with us online anytime on Friday and use coupon code: BLACKFRIDAY2021 So as you’re recovering from all the treats on Thursday, you won’t even need to get out of your jammies. Remember, this deal is online only.

Saturday, November 27, 2021

It’s Small Business Day, and we’ll be doing a 10% in-store sale on all yarn purchases (excluding MAKS and Wabash Woollen Works items). And if you’re still recovering from Turkey overload, you can shop online in your jammies for 20% off all online sales (excluding MAKS and Wabash Woollen Works) using coupon code SMALLBIZDAY2021.

Along with the Holiday Season, we are updating our store hours. Fridays will now go back to our regularly scheduled times of 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. And we’re starting it this Friday, November 26th.

Stay safe and have a great holiday season!

Merry Christmas, Susan @ Mass Ave Knit Shop and to all my knitting friends!
#massaveknitshop Finished project. I love this 97% polyester, 3% nylon sock yarn. This fiber combination, unlike wool, wicks away moisture. Good for those like me who suffer from hyper Hydrosis of the feet.
Visited the store today. Scored some beautiful yarn locally dyed by BaH yarns and what a cool bag for my purchase. Best of all, fun and friendly service. I will be back.
If you watched my live video today, I mentioned a class that Jennifer of Bur Oak Studio and I gave last month. This is one of the pendants from the class. It combines knitting needles and lamowork glass beads. We will be having another one in December at Mass Ave Knit Shop. Stay tuned for details in the next few weeks!
Beautiful shop and very helpful! I have a question about the standing yarn swift you had in your shop - are they available for sale?
