Modern knit wear for the modern knitter!
As a yarn shop owner, I come across many, many, many blogs, posts, pictures, trends, etc., each and every day… but when I stumbled across Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits I was awed and inspired. Her unique style, not to mention the photography and scenery on her website, are amazing–both artistic and professional. Her knits are absolutely beautiful but also contemporary: fashion-forward, modern and something that I want to both knit and wear.
It was difficult to chose my first project… but I settled on “Goldfinch” and decided to use Zen Yarn Garden’s “Serenity Silk Single” (a merino/cashmere/silk blend, which are available in special Tahoe colors available exclusively at The Knitting Nest).
As you might imagine, I have many (many) works-in-progress, so I don’t often finish a new one right away. But this is one I couldn’t put down. The instructions were detailed, well-written and left me with no questions. It’s already completed, and I love wearing and showing off my truly one-of-a-kind work of art.
Here at The Knitting Nest, we’ll be offering a Drea Renee Knits trunk show through October 14th. All of her patterns (and the yarns you use to create them) will be 15% off through that time. So stop by and check out something new!
