iKnit

Colin and I have just had a couple of days in London. I can’t believe how quick and easy it was to get there from Chester – 2 hours 5mins with only 2 stops and no changes!

I’ll do another post about the touristy stuff we did, but while we were there I went to visit iKnit. It is literally out the back door of Waterloo station and round the corner. The lady in the shop very kindly said I could take pictures inside the shop.

As they have a liquor license Colin settled down on the leather couch and had a beer while I perused the shelves.

I thought it would be a lot bigger seeing as they have a big event there, which I missed by a week!. Apparently there is a big room downstairs for that. So what did I get – sock yarn of course!!!

Schoppel-wolle Zaueberball in Cranberries, Malabrigo sock in Lettuce, Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome in Glacier Ice and Cherry Tree Hill supersock in Jade. I also had to replace my Harmony 2.25mm circ because I snapped the end off on the way down pulling it out of my bag roughly!. The lady also threw a load of iknit badges into the bag because I’d told her about the knitting group, so I’ll dish some of those out next meeting.

  1. You've got some lovely yarn there! How lucky to find iknit so close to Waterloo – and I can't believe I didn't know this, it would be so handy for me to pop in when I go to stay with my daughter in London because Waterloo is where I change to the local train. I shall plan it better next time.
