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!
There are only a few days left of the DanDoh trunk show! Stop by the shop by this Friday to see a large selection of knit samples and gorgeous Cotton Tape and Cotton Fine colors!
Between May 7th and 15th, The Knitting Nest will be hosting a DanDoh trunk show, featuring many yarns and patterns from this exciting company.
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!
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)!
If you saw our last post about Wonderland Yarns, you know we’re very excited to be featuring this new-to-us company! In fact, we had so many exciting patterns and photos to share with you, we couldn’t fit them all in one post. So here are a few more patterns and colors we love:
The Which Way Shawl
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.
