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

After watching @selvageknits podcast Monday I decided to cast on a ‘Throwback Sweater’ by @dreareneeknits to wear at Rhinebeck in two weeks. I want to meet up on the hill with all the other Throwback knitters. ❤️ I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do it but the progress I’ve made is exciting! I chose to do the yoke background in a contrast color and I love it! #throwbacksweaterkal

Saturday morning sleeve progress. At 5:50 am I couldn’t wait to get out of bed and get the sleeve going on this Weekender sweater. I love this pattern so much, it’s fast and genius. I know this is going to be a wardrobe staple for me this fall & winter 🍂

In this instagram world, it’s really easy to get caught up in the latest and greatest patterns and feeling like we have to make ALL THE THINGS, rightthisverysecond. 🏃🏻‍♀️ But yesterday Katie and I were talking about some of our favorite knits. They’re not the ‘hot right now’ patterns on Ravelry, they’re the classic pieces that we love today as much as we loved them 4 years ago. Like this ‘Camilla’ by @maddermade I Knit this 4 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I’m bringing it back out this Fall. It’s timeless, comfortable and still beautiful. Not to add any more pressure than you already get in your feed but... ➰cast this one on, friends ➰
It’s an oldie but a really good goodie. Does this qualify for #slowfashinoctober 🤔

Today’s work station is all kinds of cozy. ✨
I’m excited to share my #weekendersweater by @dreareneeknits You have probably seen Katie’s version in our stories lately but we’ve both had it on our needles. If one of us at #niceandknit is knitting something the other has to also. It’s just what we do, we can’t help ourselves.🤷🏻‍♀️ Im loving this although admittedly, I’m a little freaked out by the width — it currently looks like it would be the right width for a man and I’m making the xs! But I’m trusting the pattern and the thousands of FO’s on #ravelry that have had me drooling over this pattern since it was released! I finally hit 15” for the body so I can split for sleeves! I’m knitting this with 4 skeins of our Worsted in {November Rain}and 2 skeins of our brand new mohair in {Driftwood} and I am marling the two. Pretty sure if I saw this for sale in a store I’d be dying to have it! For me, that’s the sign of a really good knit.
Thank you @tbsheehan for inspiring me to finally get this on my needles. I can’t wait to wear it!

Kara says it’s her favorite sweater ever. I can see why! Carbeth by @katedaviesdesigns is fast with genius construction and a flattering fit! We highly recommend our ‘Pumpkin Spice’ colorway in DK luxe for the perfect pairing. 🍂

✨ Good Monday morning! ✨ CARBETH by @katedaviesdesigns Knit in DKluxe Pumpkin Spice colorway.

It’s Friday and we’re slammed, but we’ve got this! (our cute @homegoods sign keeps reminding us) Happy weekend!

It’s officially sweater weather! 🍂✨ Our worsted weight yarn is flying out of the studio these days! I love this autumn combination Karen of @doeweknit chose for her shop! ✨🍂

Wearing a hand-knit definitely makes this “sweater weather” a lot more tolerable. 55 degrees and 🌧 time to break out all the knits! Here is “Zweig” by @boylandknitworks done in our Navy Pier and May Flowers colorways. I modified this one to 3/4 length sleeves and a little less positive ease. ✨ #zweigsweater

We both cast on a The weekender sweater this weekend. We’ve been dyeing everyday and shipping and enjoying our little business thanks to all of you! We can get caught up in needing to knit this or that for samples and sometimes we forget what it’s like to knit for pure enjoyment. So we picked out a pattern and yarn that made us perfectly happy and knit as much as we could fit in this weekend. It was less than we both planned but it was wonderful anyway. (I did get stung by a nasty hornet while knitting outside so that was a little downer 😳🐝) .

The weekender by @dreareneeknits in DK Luxe Hazy skies and I’m holding it double with Sock in Harvest. It’s the exact color I imagined.

So much inspiration, so little time. I’m feeling a cold coming on so my weekend plans are to sit and knit this entire weekend. I just left the studio where I “stole” yarn to cast on 4 different projects. I’m throwing on a pot of soup and then finding the right needles and then casting on all the things. Hope you all have a good weekend!

We’re all set up for Knit Night @luanns_bakery Our talented friend Karen of @froghollowflowerfarm.ct just happened to have the most amazing flower arrangement to compliment our yarns. Everybody’s happy.
