NICE & KNIT  We’re sisters & bestfriends in CT with a passion for knitting & hand-dying yarns. Find our patterns & yarns on our website & Ravelry. #niceandknit

A bunch to share today: First, we’re really excited for TWO trunk shows happening this weekend (Friday & Saturday). We’ve shipped a bunch of boxes stuffed full of yarn to The Wool Workshop in Roanoke, VA and to Bliss Yarns in Brentwood, TN. They’ll both be stocked with skeins we’re really proud to share with the world - they may be some of our best work yet.
We’ve selected and sent a bunch of spring ‘Trios’ and we think you’ll love them. Our Trios are 3 color combinations that make a statement. They might fade, pop (like the ones in this photo), or surprise you but when we select them we think they make a perfect harmony. There are a bunch of beautiful patterns that require 3 skeins of Fingering weight yarn so we’ll be sharing those in our stories this week leading up to the trunk shows.
Lastly, Thank you all so much for your well wishes for my family and better health. Its so appreciated. 💓 We’re all doing fine but still fighting fevers and the flu. Because of that, we won’t actually be with our yarn in person but we will absolutely be there in spirit. We’re really bummed, but one of our biggest reasons for starting this business was to do something we love but still also be able to have flexible schedules the way we wanted/needed for our families. It’s not easy when things don’t go according to our original plan but we hope you all understand!

Happy Saturday! Our newest color way Robins Egg will be hitting the website Monday. It’s (another) favorite of mine 😊. It’s been a rough week with the flu for some of our littles and poor baby Gwen just got hit with it too. We’re ready for some summer sunshine 🌞

Earlier this week we had to make the tough choice to postpone our trunk show @mermaidspurl My son has been down and out with the flu and then some. It set us back a bit but there’s good news because he’s definitely on the upswing and we WILL be rescheduling hopefully for the beginning of June so stay tuned for the final date. 💕 thank you for your patience, everyone!

Studio scenes. 💓

Putting some heat on my needles with some hot colors - Bikini and Sagamore - because enough is enough with the weather and sickness. I’m working on ‘Gelato’ by @veerarain there’s a whole lotta garter worked on a size 7 and fingering weight and it’s incredibly squishy, I’m loving the gauge.

It’s still cold outside but the studio is brimming with spring.

Our sister Melinda modeling her #comfortfadecardi that we knit for her 40th. Our Mom and 4 of us sisters worked on this together for Melinda - a knit of love. 💓

This #Zweigsweater by @boylandknitworks is one of my most enjoyed projects to date! You know it’s good when even sleeve knitting is fun! To my surprise, the cabling detail is what keeps me interested - I thought this would tedious and it’s not at all. I’ve also found that the #knitterspride acrylics are my favorite double pointed needles for a fingering weight knit. They’re lightweight and don’t weigh down your knitting, keeping my stitches even and without ladders. I’ve tried wooden needles in many brands and short tip circular needles which eventually hurt my hands. Happy Saturday everyone!

Cheers! To a new finished object. My “Washed Out” cowl by @jojilocat is off the needles and I’m very in love!

Knitting in the afternoon sun of Chicago. 👌🏻
