Happy Holidays!

We are so very thankful for all of our amazing customers and friends! Thank you all for making this year so wonderful. We wish you lots of love, laughter and knitting (or crocheting!) this holiday season and into the next year.

Happy knitting!

With love,

Zen Yarn Garden & a Quick Cowl!

One of our most popular yarns is the custom-dyed “Tahoe” colorway by Zen Yarn Gardens. This gorgeous yarn is unique to The Knitting Nest, and makes a fabulous gift or keepsake. We love this quick, go-to cowl pattern to show off the vibrant colors (and it knits up so quickly, there’s still time to make at least one for the holidays!). This Fisherman’s Stitch Cowl is FREE with purchase of the yarn!
