Been to another great new yarn shop with a friend on Friday. i knit london at 13 Bonnington Square, Vauxhall, SW8. About five minutes walk from Vauxhall tube station. A small cozy shop with a nice choice of yarns including Cherry Tree Hill sock yarns, Garthenor Organic Pure Wool, Rooster yarns, Artesano Alpaca, an unusual banana fibre yarn (can't remember name or brand but very nice) plus Lantern Moon, Brittany & Denise needles (eeek I wanted the interchangeable needle kit but it was out of stock)
Stefan (in the photo knitting) had an excellent knowledge of knitting, was friendly and fun (great stories of knitting & life). He went out of his way to help us, finding & suggesting products/ information.
I bought some Artesano Alpaca in a few colours and some Rowan kid silk (all my posts are late because I have been crocheting a filet crochet spider scarf with glass crystal beads with the kid silk).
The shop also has the Knit a river campaign with WaterAid (photo of the giant knitted roll/ river) to get water and toilets for all worldwide.
I will be back again to visit this shop very soon.
