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!

Come knit along: Blue Sky Fibers chunky cotton cowl!

JuneKALFullIt’s not too late to join in on the Blue Sky Fibers summer knit-a-long!

How to play? Come pick out 4 colors in gorgeous organic cotton, join the Ravelry KAL group and post a picture of your completed cowl by August 31st to be entered into Blue Sky Fiber’s contest to win yarn for another beautiful project!

We love working with this yarn, especially because how often is it that you can find a good chunky yarn that seems appropriate for summer? This one is—thick, soft, but not too warm in your hands. And the colors are gorgeous!  Plus the pattern, the Caledonia Cowl, is simple and quick. Perfect for a lazy summer day!

Happy knitting!
