About The Knit Knacks
I started TheKnitknacks in 2010 when I designed my first tea cosy. I have always knitted but the design element was new to me. I developed the idea of " the tea theme" by making cake stands using vintage china and expanded my range of tea cosies designs. Later in the year I started my collection of tea time china and started renting it out for parties.
I come from a teaching background and decided to use my experience to run workshops to make cake stands which proved to be popular. These have taken place in various venues across London and can be organised in people's homes. I also started to teach knitting at Oak Studio and privately and my customers range from the complete novice to people who want to develop their skills.
Towards the end of 2010 I decided to stock yarns and made the decision to only use natural fibres. The wools are sold online and at craft events and I use them to make up my knitting kits. Most recently I have made the decision to expand my range of British Wools and started to use Alpaca which come from Devon.I am currently sourcing new Britsh yarn to sell.
I now design a larger range of knitted items including: hats, scarves, headbands, fingerless gloves and boot cuffs and am happy to have the challenge of designing for others. I have had my designs featured in Let's Knit, Simply Knitting, Knit Now and on a number of internet sites. Last year at the Alexander Palace knit and Stitch show I was approached by Search Press to design patterns on boot cuffs and hugs for a book in The 20 to Make Series and this is now published. I am currently working on a fourth book for them on 20 headbands and wraps which will be published in 2015. my third book on knitted wristwarmers is due for publication in August 2014.
In the future I hope to run more knitting and cake stand making workshops and expand my range of knitting kits. I would like to supply shops with a range of my goods to compliment my sales at craft events and online.
Please contact me if you would like to stock my goods or for me to run lessons or workshops privately or in your shop.
