We Love To Party.
Are you planning a wedding gift, a baby shower, or a gathering of old friends? We have plenty of ideas for knitted gifts and group projects - and we love to teach!
Ask us about scheduling a group class, communal knitting project, or other special event. We have plenty of inspiration, and we're all ears.
We're On It.
We love this time of year--with the love of people who are ... joyfully busy. We have gifts to knit, gifts to give, festivities to plan, and a shop FULL of good ideas for one and all. We've been restocking shelves, arranging baskets, and kitting up yarn. We're ready for whatever the holidays may bring.
So if your holiday prep is starting to feel a little hectic, come see us. We're here for you, stocked and ready for everyone on your list. Need a quick gift for your favorite knitter? Try one of Heidi & Lana's super sock kits, complete with yarn, stitch markers, pencil, tapestry needle, and pattern (whew--that's a mouthful!). or a gorgeous gradient skein from Apple Tree Knits? We have delicious holiday tea blends from Par Avion--ever meet a knitter who didn't like tea?
Read on for a taste of what else is on offer this season. Stop by for a visit; we always love to see you! And of course, we send our best wishes for a happy holiday season to you all, from each of us.

It's A Trunk Show!
Tuesday, December 19th 3:00-6:00
We love us some SOFT at Knit New Haven, so we are especially thrilled to welcome Clinton Hill Cashmere--just in time for the holidays!
Clinton Hill Cashmere is the brainchild of Rebecca Kevelson, designer and writer for Vogue Knitting. She has carefully developed a luxurious, aran-weight cashmere yarn, sheared in Mongolia and spun in a high-end Italian mill. This yarn falls squarely in the see-it-to-believe it category--so we're bringing Rebecca's collection to you! She'll bring garments to try, patterns to browse, kits, and plenty of her luscious cashmere for purchase.Added bonus: Rebecca has agreed to offer a 10% discount to our knitters on trunk show purchases--thanks, Rebecca!
This is a great opportunity to support an inspired local yarn purveyor, and to jump into some luscious winter knitting. And did we say there will be snacks?
As usual, we'll be wearing our party frocks, and we can't wait to see you!
Saturday Morning Fever!
(disco included, dancing optional)
This year, Knit New Haven is the best place to get your groove on! Come in any Saturday between now and the New Year, and we'll take special care of you. You'll find snacks, holiday cheer, and a Saturday deal-of-the-day that will change every week. You'll have to come in to find out what we have up our sleeve, but we can tell you it includes:
We love to see you any day of the week, but we're putting on the Ritz this holiday season for an extra dose of cheer on Saturdays. Our dancing shoes are on--come catch Saturday Morning Fever with us ....
Color and Joy
Knit Collage Mini Skein Cowl Kits
We love everything about these kits!
We have four different colorways in these kits, giving you choice across the spectrum. Come see!
Backyard Fiberworks Color Six-Pack
840 Yards of Hand-Dyed Happiness
We want to be Alice O-Reilly's BFF. She's the doyenne of color at Backyard Fiberworks, a small dyeworks in Maryland, and we LOOOOOOVE what she's doing. We have a vivid selection of her sock yarn and, for holiday happiness, her mini-skein six-packs. These little gems give you a beautiful combination of her signature shades, and super-generous yardage to make anything you can think of. What are we making? Linda grabbed a six-pack in autumn shades for Melanie Berg's On The Spice Market. Julia has her eye on Katy Carroll's Cooperish Cowl. Nice, huh?
Heidi & Lana Stitch Marker Bracelets
Why Didn't I Think of That?
Ok, these are a natural. Sweet beaded stitch makers, on a soft leather cord, with a strong magnetic clasp. Useful and on-trend-- who doesn't need that? We have these in a whole bunch of colors, in stock for everyone on your list. And you, of course.
Apple Tree Shawl Balls
We brought in these delicious shawl balls because, well, we couldn't resist. Each cake of color is 560 yards of super-soft merino for plenty of project options (check out their Ravelry page for sooo many ideas!) We have them in ombre tones--shading from deep color down to white in a slow fade--as well as sprightly color bridges that will keep you on your toes. Each ball is a little gem. Don't you know someone who needs one?
An Organized Knitter is a Happy Knitter
.... and these adorable bags by Impwear make it easy! We have plenty of designs to choose from, all in laminated cotton for stainproof durability (this means they are coffee-proof, and no you may NOT ask us how we know that). Small accessory bags have a sturdy key ring attached. Larger project bags have contrasting fabric inside and out. We think they're the perfect knitter's companion; you're welcome !
