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 Pattern: Gardener’s Pullover
Gardener’s Pullover is a beautiful spring pullover that is just right for when the weather is still slightly cool, but not so cold where you need a full winter coat. This is a a great piece to layer over a button-down or even just a camisole or light t-shirt.
Pattern sized S-L.
With hot temperatures just around the corner, our knitting time generally slows down and our knit wardrobe usually goes into hiberation. Our Be Happy tee can become your new favorite “knit wear” for the summer – Just $18 and super comfortable!
Sizes and Quantites are limited!
The Torquata wrap is one of our most-favorite knits because of it’s size, softness, ease, wrap-ability and overall visual impact! Pattern by the very talented Ambah O’Brien and hand-dyed yarns in stunning color combinations from yours truly! A perfect project to cast on now.
1 – Torquata Wrap Pattern Print
6 – Mini Skeins + 1 Full Skein of our Fingering Weight Yarn (1930 total yards)

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!
