The Nomadic Knits Story
Nomadic Knits is 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 nine 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 on their 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.
