Shannon Cook’s Laylow from Seasonless is today’s inspiration! Knit in Madeline Tosh’s Tosh Merino Light, this basic shawl is must for anyone who appreciates a good shawl accessory.


Seasonless is a mini collection of 3 fantastic patterns put out by Jane Richmond and Shannon Cook. I do believe that all 3 patterns will be making it into my collection of hand knits.

Quince and CO Tern is the latest yarn to make its debut at nido.

Soft and skinny, Tern is a blend of wool and tussah silk. The yarn’s muted palette—think vintage painted photographs—results from the way in which the different fibers absorb dye. The wool portion colors thoroughly, but the silk is barely tinted. It’s good for socks, scarves, mitts, hats, and any sweater that loves a little drape.75% American wool, 25% silk

fingering weight
221 yd [202 m] / 50g
9 sts /inch on size US 1 needles
7 sts / inch on size US 3 needles
