Knit Shoppe Love is my home based business that was born from a passion for all things knitting and yarn.
I only stock South African yarn. We have so much incredible talent in SA! I endeavor to always support local! I currently stock: Cowgirl Blues, Karoo Moon, Cape Weaver Bird Creations, Moya, A Cup of Yarn, LeLana, Dye House Yarns.
I’ve also sourced local leather workers, one makes me custom made project bags that double up stylishly like a handbag. And the other makes leather shawl cuffs.
We have Thursday morning and Saturday afternoon S&B gatherings and I host a variety of workshops (sock knitting; shawl knitting, macrame, hat knitting, Tunisian crochet, tapestry crochet, yarn dyeing). I have a workshop once a month in Somerset West. Once a year a bunch of us set off to the Alpaca Festival at Quenti Alpaca. We make a weekend away of it!
I am super excited to be a part of the very first Cape Town Yarn Festival, where I will be showcasing Moya Yarn and LeLana Yarn and Cape Weaver Bird Creations.
