Trunk Show: Extended Through Monday!

The DanDoh Trunk Show has been extended through Monday! The AMGEN Women’s Race is currently traveling around our lake and through our mountains, closing some roads during the next few days. So we’ve decided to extend the trunk show, and to update our store hours. Check the website for the latest information, but be sure to come in by Monday to catch all of these beautiful samples and yarns!

Zen Yarn Garden: In Exclusive Tahoe Colors!

Did you know that Zen Yarn Garden dyes a collection of yarn exclusively for The Knitting Nest? These gorgeous colors are inspired by the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe, and are a dream to work with!

One of our customers recently created this lovely shawl from a Stephen West pattern on Ravelry, called Clockwork. It’s a striped, garter-knit shawl with a unique arched shape. It looks stunning in Zen Serenity Silk (in Tahoe Oak and Tahoe Splatter)!

We also recently discovered another great pattern on Ravelry for these yarns: the Flashdance Shawl! It’s very beginner-friendly and would look great with any of these kits.
