One of the biggest roles an LYS fills is providing a community. While that is usually an in-person one, our unprecedented times are calling for a virtual one...so here goes.
All of us at Nitro Knitters are going to extend that community to social media and share our creative endeavors while trying to do our part to slow the spread. We, like most of you, do more than knit or crochet. We sew, bake, create artwork, and have cute pets. If you need some distraction and want to look at something other than news on your phone, follow the hashtag #nitroknitterscommunity. And please share what you're doing with us! Tag anyone who could use a knitting community right now. You can even set up notifications for when certain hashtags are used or people have posted.
For those of you who aren't on social media, I will keep this blog up-to-date as well.
If you want to email, you can reach us at email@example.com
Stay safe, and we will all get through this together.
Gnome is Where You Hang Your Hat is all assembled!
> In honor of St. Patrick’s Day to be working on a heartwarming project, I’m casting on a green tweed Here We Gnome Again hat, which I will be combining with a body and beard from two of Sarah Schira’s other gnomes-pics to follow

A couple weeks we received a new-to-us line from Adriafil called KnitCol. It is dyed in a way that makes it stripe and pattern so it makes simple stockinette look super fancy! We immediately thought of a child's sweater, but it would also look really nice as a hat, leg warmers, mittens. It's available in a wide array of beautiful color combinations.
Pattern is Knitting Pure and Simple - Great, straight forward patterns!

Last week a beautiful shipment of Yummy Fingering from Candy Skein arrived! Tami from Candy Skein worked with a mill to create the base for Yummy Fingering, so it is exclusive for her! At 463 yards each skein has a lot of yardage, but still has a nice body to it - not too thin. It has been super popular for multi-color projects because the tonal palette works really well together. And each color also looks equally good by itself. It's a blend of 75/25 Superwash Merino and Nylon, so it would be strong enough for a pair of socks, and soft enough for a next-to-skin accessory. Come in to feel for yourself!
