August 2018 – This month we return to Cambridge Market after our summer break ! We look forward to seeing you any Sunday from 10 – 4pm : we have a huge array of items from bespoke hand dyed skeins to more mainstream acrylics in various colours – we also have a large selection of knitting patterns and books alongside knitting needles and crochet hooks.

If you have never visited the Cambridge Market read all about it here – https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/markets

We are also busy working on new editorials for local publications – look out for them !

So July saw us take a summer break and I was very lucky to be able to enjoy 2 weeks away with my family in sunny Mallorca – never one to sit still for long periods of time – I took a knitting project or two with me ! I packed a ball of my best selling James C Brett ‘Northern Lights’ – one ball promises to make a shawl and you find the pattern within the ball band – and indeed it does  I made a stunning grey shawl and for my first time ever shawl knitting I was very proud of myself ! You can find the shawl on my Cambridge Market Stall – a perfect example of what a few hours knitting can create and for just £5 a ball its a true bargain ! I enjoyed the project so much that I have started a new shawl this time using one of my Manos Del Uruguay skeins – this is to be a gift.

So what will August see for KNL ? I am hoping to create a ‘Summer Sale’ as we’ve been investigating new stock lines recently so this will be a chance for you to purchase your Knitting/Crochet goodies at a reduced price and a little bit of out with the old and in with the new  I’m also working very hard to get my ‘Make’ packs created – watch this space !

We are also still looking forward to :
