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)!

Wonderland Yarns… Part 2!

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.

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!
