Last Call for Yarn!

This is it! The Knitting Nest will be temporarily closing while Lauren welcomes a baby girl into the world. We expect to be open this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and then closed through the rest of the year. So if you need any new projects, holiday gifts or other supplies, come see us now!

Please check the website or call us at 775.588.4015 to confirm our hours (and to make sure our new baby girl hasn’t decided to come early).

Happy knitting and happy holidays!

Wonderland Yarn: Messenger Kit

As the days grow darker, we love to dive into new, colorful knitting projects. This Messenger Shawl by Wonderland Yarns is a shop favorite: the pattern is include with the yarn, and is both simple and fun to knit. And there are so many colors to choose from! The kit also comes with patterns for a hat and gloves, if cozier knitting is calling to you…

Either way, you’ll love these vibrant colors — perfect for chilly fall days!
