Range Shawl by Drea Renee Knits

If you’re looking for an eye-catching project that isn’t too complicated but will keep your interest, allow us to recommend the Range Shawl by Drea Renee Knits! This gorgeous piece is a joy to knit and wear. Its unique corner-to-corner construction knits up quickly. We love it in these natural hues, but it would also be beautiful in brighter colors.

This projects works with many different yarns, so stop by and let us help you pick your favorites!

Happy knitting!


Drea Renee Trunk Show!

As a yarn shop owner, I come across many, many, many blogs, posts, pictures, trends, etc., each and every day… but when I stumbled across Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits I was awed and inspired. Her unique style, not to mention the photography and scenery on her website, are amazing–both artistic and professional. Her knits are absolutely beautiful but also contemporary: fashion-forward, modern and something that I want to both knit and wear.  

It was difficult to chose my first project… but I settled on “Goldfinch” and decided to use Zen Yarn Garden’s “Serenity Silk Single” (a merino/cashmere/silk blend, which are available in special Tahoe colors available exclusively at The Knitting Nest).

As you might imagine, I have many (many) works-in-progress, so I don’t often finish a new one right away. But this is one I couldn’t put down. The instructions were detailed, well-written and left me with no questions. It’s already completed, and I love wearing and showing off my truly one-of-a-kind work of art.



Here at The Knitting Nest, we’ll be offering a Drea Renee Knits trunk show through October 14th. All of her patterns (and the yarns you use to create them) will be 15% off through that time. So stop by and check out something new!

Happy knitting!
