Happy New Year! I hope you had a lovely holiday with time to relax with your friends and loved ones, and that your celebrations were joyful, leaving you invigorated and enthusiastic about the new year.
I definitely feel energized, much because of my time off, but also because I’m so excited about the spring and the plans we have for Knit with attitude. The new workshop schedule is about to go live, and we have lots and lots of new luscious fibres coming in to fill up the shelves. I’m not revealing the highlights just yet, but let me say as much as we’re focusing on the best of British and also a gorgeous range of hand dyes this spring!
So what better occasion could one have to clear some space to make room for the new?
None you say – and I hear you! We’re having a proper winter SALE!
Yes, I told already, this really is a happy new year!
Here at Knit with attitude we’re proud to be joining the National ‘Love your yarn shop’ campain, and we can’t wait to welcome you all to Yarn Shop Day May 3rd, a day of celebrating all things woolly!!!
The campaign is initiated by leading UK publication Let’s Knit, editor Sarah Neil says:
“Love Your Yarn Shop is designed to remind consumers of the value of their local wool store. With the growth of the internet we have far more shopping opportunities than ever before, but when it comes to knitting there’s no substitute for seeing and touching the yarn, and for having the advice of experienced knitters on hand. Yarn shops provide all this and more; they are sources of great inspiration and often a community hub. It’s been a tough time for the high street recently so we’re encouraging consumers to support these shops and enjoy all that they have to offer.”
What is ‘Yarn Shop Day’?
Yarn Shop Day is a day for showing your yarn shop some love, but it is also an opportunity for the yarn shops to show how much this love is appreciated. At Knit with attitude we are setting up free drop-in arm knitting workshops throughout the day, we are offering a 10% discount both online and in store, AND our knitting and crochet experts are all ready to tackle any yarn emergency on the day.
Hope to see you all there!
