(In case you didn’t get the photo before, here it is!)

Sofia Wayne Zebo joined us a bit later than her November 30th due date, but baby and mom are both doing great! Thank you so much for your support during this new stage–we feel so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful friends and customers.

The shop is currently still closed, but we expect to be open in the next week or two. Check the website or call us at 775.588.4015 for our most current hours.

Happy new year, and happy knitting!

 

Last Call for Yarn!

This is it! The Knitting Nest will be temporarily closing while Lauren welcomes a baby girl into the world. We expect to be open this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and then closed through the rest of the year. So if you need any new projects, holiday gifts or other supplies, come see us now!

Please check the website or call us at 775.588.4015 to confirm our hours (and to make sure our new baby girl hasn’t decided to come early).

Happy knitting and happy holidays!

Silk & Suri Scarf by Blue Sky Fibers

Cool weather calls for soft, luxurious knitting… and we love this simple scarf pattern by Blue Sky Fibers. Knit in silk and suri, this easy knit feels wonderful in your hands and is a pleasure to wear. It would also make a lovely gift!

Wonderland Yarn: Messenger Kit

As the days grow darker, we love to dive into new, colorful knitting projects. This Messenger Shawl by Wonderland Yarns is a shop favorite: the pattern is include with the yarn, and is both simple and fun to knit. And there are so many colors to choose from! The kit also comes with patterns for a hat and gloves, if cozier knitting is calling to you…

Either way, you’ll love these vibrant colors — perfect for chilly fall days!

Happy knitting!
