Perfect for hot summer days, these lightweight projects shine in beautiful cotton, silk and linen. Many of the patterns look much more complicated than they really are, so don’t be afraid to explore some new styles of knitting or crochet!

Find more information here, or just stop by and explore! Hope to see you there!

DanDoh Trunk Show: May 7th-15th!

Mark your calendar: we have an exciting trunk show coming to The Knitting Nest between May 7th and 15th!

Here’s the story: Each year, we attend a yarn show in January, to discover all the latest designs and fibers. As you might imagine, we are surround by absolutely gorgeous knit and crochet items–in the company booths, on displays and on the shop owners and designers who are attending the show. This year, one woman’s knit cover-up was so gorgeous we stopped her to compliment it. And we’re so glad we did, because we discovered that it was her own design, and that she is the owner of DanDoh, a truly unique and modern yarn company!

DanDoh projects are perfect summer knitting, featuring yarns in cotton, linen and silk. We think you’ll love all of the patterns, and we’ll be featuring many knit and crochet samples (as well as a large array of color choices) during the trunk show.

Hope to see you there!
