Nomadic Knits: Florida Issue


Nomadic Knits is a boutique magazine featuring beautifully designed knitwear, local fiber producers, dyers, and shops. Each issue will focus on a different region of the world and highlight the things that make that region so special. The first issue focuses on Florida and is available now!

You might remember meeting Becky & Melissa when they stopped by my podcast earlier this year when they were scouting out Florida yarns! They chose to feature Be So Fine Yarn in one of the designs in the magazine and I’m thrilled to announce that it is on the cover, too!
