Shop profile: I Knit London

Located just steps away from Waterloo Station, I Knit's cozy shop on Lower Marsh is a must-see in central London.
I Knit stocks a wide range of yarns, including a large selection of UK-based yarns and dyers. Brands include Artesano, Colinette, Malabrigo, Fyberspates, Handmaiden and Habu, to name a few. They also stock loads of books and magazines, as well as needles, crochet hooks, and notions of all sorts.

The key feature of their selection, however, has to be owner Gerard Allt's own line of I Knit or Dye lace and sock yarns that he dyes in the basement of the shop. He also runs sock and lace clubs featuring the I Knit or Dye yarns and exclusive patterns.
Weekly knit nights (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays!) include lots of yarn, fun and adult beverages from I Knit's licensed bar.

I Knit offers a range of classes, with beginner's knitting and crochet currently available. They also have guest speakers coming through the shop, and have hosted the I Knit Weekender, a fantastic weekend celebration of all things yarn, in previous years.

We are thrilled that I Knit is a part of the inaugural Great London Yarn Crawl, and if you haven't visited yet, you're going to love it!
