First up on our series of staff inspired wish lists is Maya’s. Owner of Knit With Attitude, Maya’s list draws on some favourite things from her shop as well as Of Cabbages and Kings who share the same shop space. This year we have all made two lists, one we would like to receive and one we would like to give.
Maya’s Wish List:
A selection of Garnsurr Søkke Merino. This is a new range of yarn for us and its hard to resist, its simply beautiful and is a social integration project for refugee
women in Norway. One to warm your heart and your needles this Christmas.
A Hey Mama Wolf Dying Kit. We’ve been captivated by natural dying here in the shop recently and these kits have really caught peoples imagination.
Read This If You Want To Take Great Photographs of Places. Not only do these make interesting reads they are full of practical tips. Perfect if you have any holiday
travel plans and want to capture the moment.
A sweaters worth of Socks Yeah. Maya says she has been inspired by the Tabular jumper on the cover of Pompom 23 and a perfect yarn for this is Socks Yeah with a gorgeous range of colours its easy to find a great combo.
Bristol Ivy’s book Knitting Outside the Box is a must for cosy inspiring projects guaranteed to keep you entertained over the holidays.
Maya’s Give List:
For the Husband – a whole lot of Picture Hangers so that the pictures that never get framed can get up on the wall.
For the Daughter – Read This If You Want To Take Great Photographs Of People. Living in the snap-chat era this will come in handy.
For the Son – The Red Fox Cub by Tiff Howick because he has seen it in Of Cabbages and Kings and thinks that the fox is soooo cute! – and also a ball of Stitch & Story,
so that he can finally finish his scarf he’s been working on for the last two years.
For the Best Friend – Luna Drop Earrings – they are just super cool!
