Trunk Show: Sister Yarn by Knit Collage!

Now through the middle of October, we’re featuring a Sister yarn trunk show by Knit Collage. This chunky yarn is one of our favorites, and it’s so much fun to see it knit up in so many of the always on-trend Knit Collage patterns. Here are some of our favorites (but of course they always look even better in person!):

The DanDoh Trunk Show has been extended through Monday! The AMGEN Women’s Race is currently traveling around our lake and through our mountains, closing some roads during the next few days. So we’ve decided to extend the trunk show, and to update our store hours.

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!

Drea Renee Trunk Show!

img_0127Modern knit wear for the modern knitter!

As a yarn shop owner, I come across many, many, many blogs, posts, pictures, trends, etc., each and every day… but when I stumbled across Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits I was awed and inspired. Her unique style, not to mention the photography and scenery on her website, are amazing–both artistic and professional. Her knits are absolutely beautiful but also contemporary: fashion-forward, modern and something that I want to both knit and wear.  

It was difficult to chose my first project… but I settled on “Goldfinch” and decided to use Zen Yarn Garden’s “Serenity Silk Single” (a merino/cashmere/silk blend, which are available in special Tahoe colors available exclusively at The Knitting Nest).

As you might imagine, I have many (many) works-in-progress, so I don’t often finish a new one right away. But this is one I couldn’t put down. The instructions were detailed, well-written and left me with no questions. It’s already completed, and I love wearing and showing off my truly one-of-a-kind work of art.
