Created at the initiative of Let’s Knit, Yarn Shop Day is a yearly event aiming to promote local bricks and mortar yarn shops across the country. This year it will take place on the 6th of May and given the nature of the event it seemed logical that we should promote some of the local talent closest to YAK. For the occasion we have invited dyer Amy Florence and knitwear designer Dani Sunshine, to showcase their beautiful yarns and samples.
Our wonderful knitting teacher Dani Sunshine will also be exhibiting some of her samples on the day. Dani designs patterns for both adults and children, recognisable for their combination of elegant shapes, interesting construction details and a subtle use of colour. We’re huge fans of Dani’s designs, and considering how many positives reactions her patterns receive on Ravelry, we thought it likely that most of our customers would be as enthusiastic as we are to get to see more of her work in real life!
Both Dani’s samples and Amy’s yarns will be on display for one day only, so be sure to make it to the shop on the 6th of May between 10:00 am and 6:00pm.
We’re looking forward to see you on the 6th of May, and of course until next time… Happy Knitting!
