Next on the needles is the Juliette Scarf by Swans Island in their NEW lace weight yarn. SO excited for this one!
nido just received a shipment of a TON of Swans Island’s NEW lace weight yarn in a variety of colors sure to please everyone! This is a wonderfully soft lace weight yarn with great yardage. The base is 50% merino wool and 50% tussah silk. Tussah silk is a sustainable material that is harvested after the butterfly has already left the cocoon.
Here is the start of my first EVER knit sweater! Inspired by Stephanie, I have really tried to make a go at knitting this winter. Maybe my sweater knitting is more like leaping in since the Cecchette sweater by Marnie MacLean is knit out of sock yarn. Wish me luck!
nido now carries Peace Fleece yarn from southwestern Maine. A husband and wife team make up the Peace Fleece staff who source wool from farmers and shepherds in eastern Europe, central Asia and the Middle East in an effort to set aside historic differences in hopes to make economic interdependence. Quite a lovely story.
We are currently offering Peace Fleece DK yarn in a variety of colors. Come by and check out what Stephanie is knitting with our new yarns-she is sure to inspire you!
A new shipment of Skinny Laminx fat quarters arrived at the shop over the weekend. I am in LOVE with Heather’s fabric and have already started a little pile that I plan on making new couch pillows with. Hurry in, the hoarding has already begun!
Rashida Coleman-Hale’s new fabric, Tsuru, just arrived at nido. This Japanese inspired collection in 100% certified organic cotton is already a HUGE hit at the shop.
Simple enough to do just in time for Valentine’s Day! Full tutorial at Design Sponge.
A new shipment of echino just arrived. In addition to the popular “Bucks” print in mustard, we have the “Insect” print in natural (my personal favorite!), as well as the “Cheater” in pink and the “Acadia Forest” in mint. More is on its way. Come check what’s new and nido.
