More News from Mass Ave Knit Shop

Most of you know Liza Crane and the work she does with Horizon House and the homeless of Indianapolis! This is a request she sent to me today!! Please help out if you are able!

Can you put the word out that I need fabric sewn masks for non-patient care use?
I’m running a safe recovery site for the homeless. 260 beds. Lots of staff.
Thanks, ❤️Liza

Mail the masks to Liza Crane at 615 E Minnesota St. Indianapolis, IN 46203 or drop off at the shop on Monday.

Also, there are a couple of fun things coming up during our quarantine! We are still proceeding with the Malabrigo Dos Tierras Knit along. It uses 1 skein each of 3 colors in this amazing yarn! The pattern is Odyssey by Joji Locatelli and is free on Ravelry!  I am going to go to the shop on Monday to take orders if you want to join us! I will be at the shop from 11-2 pm. Just call and I can send you the yarn. I will post the colors of both on Facebook and Instagram!  If you are not signed up for either of those, call me at the shop and I can text or describe the colors in stock!!  You will want 24” and 40” size 8 needles. The pattern calls for size 11, but you will run out of yarn by using that size needle.

Also, Berroco has a knit along coming up! They are also doing drop ship to customers! There are Many Cardigan patterns that they are suggesting for the KNIT-A-LONG !  I will send out more info as I get it!

If at all possible sign up to follow me on Facebook- Mass Ave Knit Shop or Instagram- susan_maks. Both are easier and faster for me to get out information about what I am doing during the quarantine!

I hope you are all doing well! Message me or call me at the shop on Monday if you need ANYTHING!



I just received this message from Susan Roderer, who has taught our beginning knitting class for many years!! Please go through your sewing boxes , or in my case junk drawer and send them your left over or new elastic!!

New Hope of Indiana is in desperate need of 1/4 inch elastic. They are making masks because they can’t get any. Do you feel comfortable asking on the Mass Ave blog? The elastic can be mailed to New Hope of Indiana. 8450 N Payne Rd Ste 300, Indianapolis 46268

Stay safe! Send me your projects and I will post on the blog!

In-Store Retreat

What IS the In-Store Retreat?
The In-Store Retreat is a weekend of meeting up with old friends and making new ones while working on your latest yarn project without the distraction of home and work.

For a fee of $25 for the entire weekend, you get a discount on all yarn in the store, as well as 7-10 free patterns, a cool shop bag and a chance to win one of the many door prizes we give away throughout the weekend.

Feel free to join us all weekend or just for an hour or two. We look forward to seeing you over the weekend!

What is an Over-Nighter?

An over-nighter is a night we set aside for our favorite yarn projects. Over-nighters start at 7:30PM and go on through the evening until the last person goes home. For $20 we provide pizza and drinks. You bring a snack and your latest project to work on. Sometimes we work on a service project, so be sure to check the blog before you join us. Can't wait to see you at our next over-nighter!
