Stitch & Story – Knitting kits made simple –











Stitch-Story-16

I am not a knitter. I have never really knitted, apart from when I tried to make some kind of terrifyingly awful knitted Christmas decorations at primary school… which were really (really) bad.

I don’t have the greatest track record when it comes to persevering with new skills or techniques – whether it’s a new craft, language or sport – if I don’t get it straight away I tend to get bored and give up…. so these knitting kits by Stitch & Story are right up my alley and couldn’t be more perfect.

Co-founded by two friends, Jen & Jen, their mission is to make knitting simple. They’ve created knitting kits which include simple-to-follow patterns, super soft chunky yarn (100% merino) and they have online tutorials too, which I used when I couldn’t quite work out how to cast on…

Think I may have made a mistake?!

They also hold monthly beginners’ knitting classes in central London, so you can meet and get the help of some fellow knitting comrades too…

I am loving knitting my scarf and especially how easy it is to do! The simple tutorials, instruction packs and diagrams have made the whole process easy peasy and I can’t wait to buy these knitting kits for friends and family this Christmas – another perfect gift FOUND!

I’ve also loved the slowness of it – the cosiness of settling into my favourite chair with my favourite slippers on, and creating something gorgeous, soft and comforting…

“For us, knitting is a way of embedding emotions and memories in our creations, slowing down in our constantly busy lifestyle, and appreciating the traditional values of a simple life.”

I couldn’t agree more.
