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.
