Today’s shop wishlist comes from Natalie, one of our behind the scenes and weekday staff members. As before her list crosses between both the shops in our storefront, Knit With Attitude and Of Cabbages & Kings. Natalie works behind the scenes for both shops during the week, and teaches the knitting classes.
A sweaters worth of Lettlopi in Charcoal, oatmeal, white and pink! I have been dreaming of a cozy traditional Icelandic sweater to keep me warm in the winter months and I think this combo would give it a modern twist. The body would be in charcoal and the accents in the other three colours.
Ibiba necklace from Chalk. I love this simple necklace that still makes a statement. I find a lot of bib style necklaces hard to wear, but this one is just the right size.
Have You Herd? calendar from Mister Peebles. The illustrations in this are so amazing, I would love to look at it every month! It would be hard to choose a favourite month. Better yet it would be easy enough to frame them up at the end of the year to continue to enjoy them.
The Mindfulness in Knitting by Rachel Matthews has been super popular in the shop and I would love the chance to crack it open and read about how good knitting is for me.
Lingnum Fold pencil pot would be a great way to keep my pencils tidy, and stop my knitting needles from rolling all over the table when I’m not using them.
Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles in Zephyr to knit a shawl. I love this colourway! It’s a cream base with little speckles of neons, making it a wonderful pop of colour on these dreary grey winter days.
British and Irish Isles Place Maps from JollySmith. I only moved to England a few years ago, so these maps would be useful and help my local geography, a win-win!
Things are starting to get a bit festive here at the shop! We asked all the staff to put together their wish list from the shop. You might not know if you haven’t visited our shop in person, but we are actually 2 shops in one storefront. The other shop is called Knit With Attitude, and sells ethically and environmentally friendly yarns and knitting supplies sourced from around the world. Our Christmas lists cross both shops, so extra reason to pop by and see if something catches your eye. Maybe it will inspire your own list, or help you find a gift for someone else.
First up is Jess’s list. She is the owner of Of Cabbages & Kings. We can see a bit of a colour theme going on here! Click on the links to see the products in the respective online shops.
Chris Andrews – Green Woodpecker print Maybe it’s the festive green and red combo that’s so appealing or memories of nature books and rambles through the woods?
Curve Hoops I must be going through a green phase. These deco style earrings with the gold insert look super glamorous for party season. Want!!!
Pom Pom Quarterly Great little books. So collectable, they look lovely on the shelf and there are always two or three patterns I want to have a crack at. This winter it’s the Palindrome and Ondeto scarfs.
Sacred Saffron Beyul from Kettle Yarn There’s a lace top I have in mind for this yarn. I love the rich rusty tones and silky sheen.
Project bag by Smock Shop Practical gift – these are so handy. And since I’ve usually got several projects on the go, I could really do with a different bag for each one.
Studio Noah Pots I have a fireplace in my new flat that’s just crying out to be filled with plants. These would be great potted with some succulents. Also, they’re made with volcanic ash and that’s just cool.
Soakwash This wash is so great for more than washing just wool, it’s saved a few of my silk tops that got a spot on them as well!
Thanks Jess! You can find all the items listed here online and in the shop! What’s on your wishlist?
