Coronavirus pandemic: Information for customers

The Clapton shop is re-opening on 13 April. From this date knitters will be able to come into the shop to buy wool and needles and get advice about what they need. There are a number of measures which will stay in place for the forseeable future to keep the shop as safe as possible. These include: * One person at a time (we will have chairs outside for any knitters that get stuck in a queue, so do bring your knitting in case you have to wait) * Pay by card, not cash * Use the hand sanitiser when you come in * Place your items in a wooden tray, instead of carrying them in your hands * Hold back from touching the wool against your face Unfortunately I won't be able to provide sit-down help with knitting, but I will still be available for video consults for pattern and technique help. And finally Wool-by-Bike for local knitters, and Wool-by-Post for far-away knitters, will carry on just as during the lockdown. The Knit and Collect service, will also continue and remains a good

A small knitting shop in Hackney full of knitting supplies and support, for seasoned knitsters, nervous newbies, local craftivists and anyone else seeking new adventures with yarn. I’ll help you find the right pattern, match it with lovely wools and needles, and I’ll be around to help count your rows, pick up dropped stitches and other unforseens along the way. Pop in to wind your skeins, get some inspiration, or just to chat about how it’s all going. And there’s super tea and coffee from the cafe next door if you feel like settling in for a while…
