BRITISH KNITTING AWARDS 2014
You lovely, lovely people!
We've been awarded the Runner-Up prize "Best Ready to use Knit Kits" in the Let's Knit British Knitting Awards 2014.
Thank you so much.
To win in 2013 and be awarded this prize in 2014 is a huge accolade and a testament to the hard-working team behind The Little Knitting Company.
Let's Knit and Let's Get Crafting invited readers to nominate their favourites in May 2014, the resulting shortlist appeared in the August issue and online for three months. "... The British Knitting Awards is a true representation of consumer opinion and as such these awards are highly coveted by key names across the industry."
In 2013, the final list of winners recognised a total of 47 companies and individuals, and categories include Best Knitting Designer, Best Luxury Yarn Brand and Best Knitting Blog. As well as celebrating big names such as Sirdar, Rowan, Deramores and John Lewis, the awards also sought to highlight the importance of small local knitting shops by dividing Independent Yarn Store into six regional categories for the first time.
