Yarnfinding #2 When in London...

Home » Blog » Yarnfinding #2 When in London…

IMG_0749No trip to London can be complete without tracking down one of the capital’s many yarn stores. Loop London has been on my list for quite some time. How lucky that I found myself in the general environs one Saturday in February. The small, cheerful shop is crammed with yarny goodness. Hand dyed and high quality knitting yarns and notions a specialty. There are two floors of generously stocked shelves to boggle over. There was a sock knitting day in full swing on the day I visited but sadly I had other obligations.

I selected three balls of Zauberball sock yarn as I have an urge to learn entrelac tunisian crochet. *Update* here is the FO!

The area (Camden Passage, Islington) is filled with quirky and interesting shops and cafes so it would be quite possible to while away a very pleasant day.

Ooooo!

Ooooo!

As we all know, you can never visit too many yarn shops. I had heard that the yarn section of Liberty’s had undergone a complete re-fit and re-location. The new layout is much better. It is light and airy and the yarn is beautifully displayed. They have a comprehensive stock of all things Rowan and delightful knitting ladies to chat to. Enough said!
