Yarn & Knitting Brighton

YAK of Brighton

Hello!

This weekend was the grand opening of Brighton’s premier local yarn store: Yarn & Knitting, aka YAK.

I went down to Brighton Saturday for the big event and was so pleased to see the shop chock full of knitters and supporters, including her mum, who was helpfully manning the till while Kate welcomed the well-wishers.

Linda of Kettle Yarn Co., Kate, proud new owner of YAK and Tom of Holland, darning master all enjoyed a glass of bubbly in celebration.

The shop has a great stock of yarn from indie dyers, particularly from Brighton-local The Uncommon Thread, as well as Yellow Bear Wares jewelry, all the notions a knitter could want and space for classes and workshops.

The shop looks set to become a loved local and I wish Kate all the success in the world.

Happy knitting,

R.
