An Update About Our Shop

Hello knitting friends! We hope that this email finds you staying healthy, safe and cuddled up at home with some yarn!

Although we miss seeing you all in our shop, The Knitting Nest has decided to remain closed for the time being, as we know that staying home can help slow the spread of COVID-19. We also realize that this is a perfect time to indulge in the healing powers of comfort and craft — perfect for the yarn arts! To help support you in your creative work at this time, we will do everything we can to arrange a meeting with you, should you find yourself in desperate need of yarn, supplies or knitting help. Please email Lauren at knittingnest@yahoo.com with any questions.

In the meantime, we’re sending you all love and peaceful thoughts. Stay healthy, stay calm and keep knitting!

Love,

The Knitting Nest

Snuggly Bunny

New in the shop: Sirdar’s Snuggly Bunny yarn! This fluffy yarn comes in a range of beautiful pastel colors and is perfect for quick, simple stitches. It’s also great to use for trims! There are many adorable baby patterns available, but we also love it in this cozy cowl. This free pattern knits up quickly in the round and has a wonderfully vintage-inspired look.

This yarn feels so cuddly and wonderful, you may to make cowls in multiple colors! Or perhaps move on to a faux fur pillow (another free pattern)… The yarn is machine washable, so snuggle away!

Happy knitting!

P.S. Our shop hours are sometimes shortened while Lauren cares for baby Sofia, and due to winter road conditions, so please remember to check the website or call ahead for our most up-to-date schedule. Thank you!

Bachi Shawl

The new oversized yarn balls from Noro are perfect for these quick, bulky shawls! Using just two balls, this asymmetrical pattern knits up quickly on size 13 US needles. And we love the vibrant color options. Wrap yourself up in color and warmth with a design that’s fun to knit and fun to wear!

Zen Yarn Garden & a Quick Cowl!

One of our most popular yarns is the custom-dyed “Tahoe” colorway by Zen Yarn Gardens. This gorgeous yarn is unique to The Knitting Nest, and makes a fabulous gift or keepsake. We love this quick, go-to cowl pattern to show off the vibrant colors (and it knits up so quickly, there’s still time to make at least one for the holidays!). This Fisherman’s Stitch Cowl is FREE with purchase of the yarn!

The pattern also looks beautiful in this Malabrigo Rios yarn:
