Welcome to the very first issue of Nomadic Knits! Nomadic Knits Magazine was founded in 2018 as a knitting travelogue featuring regional yarns and the makers behind them. Utilizing beautiful designs, Nomadic Knits will feature regional fibers in designs reminiscent of that region. It is printed on beautiful matte paper in the US.
issue one : florida features nine designs by Melissa Kemmerer. Each design is perfectly suited for warm-weather wear and features Florida dyed yarns. Beautifully photographed, we hope the issue transports you to the sun and sand and inspires you knit for the too-often neglected warmer seasons.
We’ll see you on the beach!
More About Nomadic Knits:
Thanks for stopping by to check out Nomadic Knits, a boutique knitting magazine featuring beautifully designed knitwear, local fiber producers, indie dyers, and local yarn shops. Each issue shines a spotlight on a different region of the world and highlights the things that make that region special. Our first issue focused on Florida and was released in September of 2018. We followed up in December of 2018 with issue two : new york state and have since released five more issues.
Becky and Melissa met and became great friends through their love of yarn and knitting. They continuously enable each other to buy ALL the yarn and knit ALL the things. Not too long ago, Becky sold her house, her yarn shop, and most of her belongings, and took off to travel the country in a van with her giant poodle, Bubba. Melissa is the designer behind Melissa Kemmerer Designs, and she travels between upstate New York and southern Florida, knitting wherever she happens to be.
These two are determined to stay connected through their love of knitting and all things fiber. You can follow their pursuit of local makers and fiber artists here on the blog. Melissa and Becky believe that local is where you are right now, and wherever you find your people; it is not just a place, but a sense of community and belonging.
