Yarnsmith

How things have changed since I bought www.yarnsmith.co.uk in 2008, when, almost on a whim, we travelled to London, packed the car with stock and headed back to set up the business from our spare bedroom.

We now have a purpose built studio in the garden; we have re-written and re-launched the website; every spare moment not running the shop is spent teaching, designing, demonstrating or talking yarn, every extra spare moment is spent knitting. What hasn’t changed is my passion for the craft – the indescribable joy and satisfaction I get from creating something totally unique out of scrumptious fibres and a series of knots!

My passion to share this love and pass it on to seasoned and novice knitters alike is what drives me so I hope that our web-site and creations inspire you to wield your needles afresh and continue the “knitting revolution!”
