Shop Update Happening Monday Only – Speckles and One of a Kind Skeins available in limited quantities!

We’re gearing up for our first limited time only Etsy shop update and it all kicks off this coming Monday, May 29 at 9am EST.  Mark your calendars and bookmark our Etsy site because that’s where it’s all going down!  The shop update will be WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) meaning quantities are limited to what you see listed and/or pictured – keep that in mind for those one of a kind skeins we’ll be listing. Orders are ready to ship – instant gratification!

We’re using our Etsy site to make browsing the unique skeins a little easier and we’re hoping this is the first of many Etsy pop up shops.  Of course if you’re looking for our standard color line up those can still be found at and are a perfect compliment to our speckled colorways!

We’ll have our 4 weights (Fingering, Sport, DK and Worsted) available in various colors but here’s a sneak peek of some of the amazing skeins we’ve been working on! Hope you’ll join us on Monday!

Other News

You might notice that we don’t blog nearly as much as we used to. It’s not because we don’t want to or don’t see the value – it’s simply a matter of being two busy moms who are bound by limits of 24 hours in any given day. But thanks to Instagram, we feel like we can more readily microblog our news and projects. It allows us to keep in touch with our followers a bit more easily and often. If you’re feeling like you’re missing out on what’s new or you’re wondering where we are –  please follow us!

New Yarn Base

Last month we debuted our new Nice & Knit DK LUXE and we gave it that name for a reason. The softness of this yarn and the drape when knit is extraordinary.

DK Luxe is 230 yds/100g skein and consists of 65% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Silk, 15% Yak
We’re dyeing this in 3 exclusive colorways: Wave, Golden Sun and Hazy Skies.

A little shout-out to our sister and her husband who recently started a beautiful Etsy shop selling paper goods and home office decor. Their gorgeous collection of stationery has made its way into our everyday life at Nice & Knit. Hand-written notes and to-do lists never looked so good! We’ll have them in our Stitches booth, too!

Pattern release: Gardener’s Pullover

Gardeners-85 copy

Our newest pattern Gardener’s Pullover is now available on our website at and on Ravelry.  This oversized and loose sweater is the perfect weight for cooler spring days and evenings.  The seed stitch and beautiful cables make this a interesting and very rewarding knit.

The prototype has been in the works for months and in my mind for years!  We were overjoyed to find the perfect new DK to add to Nice & Knit Yarns.

Our new DK Luxe is the most fantastic blend of 65/20/15 Merino Wool Superwash, Silk and Yak.  DK Luxe is a generous 230 yards, the yarn is incredibly soft with a gorgeous sheen, it knits up like an absolute dream!

Wave, Summer Sun & Hazy Skies

2017-03-05 14.21.19-22017-03-05 14.21.42

Gardeners Pullover really is my absolute favorite knit of all time…I think you’ll think so too!


Southbound for the Holidays – Limited Edition Kit

Well, it’s not exactly as it sounds, we won’t be heading southbound for the holidays but with temps expected to dip below zero it does sound like a good idea.  Instead, ‘Southbound for the Holidays‘ is describing a limited edition color kit for our Southbound wrap pattern.  The holiday kit pairs classic colors together for a festive flair with a peekaboo of red and green but in a way that the wrap can be worn all winter long. This kit will be available just through the 2016 Holiday season at a special price of $99 (reg. $116). No code necessary, Shop now!

Our latest cowl pattern, Winter Wind, is blowing in just in time for the holiday season!  Winter Wind mixes our Nice & Knit Worsted and Fingering weight bases to create an accessory that is so luxuriously soft and light, yet still so toasty warm that you might even mistake it for cashmere.

1 Digital Download of Winter Wind Pattern
