The Knitting & Stitching Show, Ally Pally, 2015

Phew! We're just catching our breath after a great show. The British Knitting Awards ceremony was held on Thursday evening where we collected our Runner Up for Best Ready To Use Kits certificate - thank you again for your votes. A five day show gives you a chance to meet a lot of people and get to know some of the things that they really like. You loved the Soak and Flatter too - so thanks again to Husband Helper Elf for the beautiful display stand. #knittingandstitchingshow #soaksperson

Soak and Flatter

Soak is hot news right now. Here at The Little Knitting Company™ we've loved Soak since we started early in 2008 and can heartily recommend it for washing lingerie as well as hand knitted items, cashmere sweaters, sportswear, swimwear, gym and of course baby clothes. We despatch daily. Head over here to find out more. Flatter is a fabulous linen and refreshing spray from the Soakwash stable, perfect for all you crafters, quilters and Sewing Bees! #soakwash #soakworthy #flatterbysoak

If you are here searching for presents for the knitter in your life. Relax. Your search is over. We have knitting kits, beautiful Luxury Knitters Hampers, gorgeous knitting and sock needles and must have accessories. Alternatively, you could select from our wide range of wool and yarn with a pair of co-ordinating needles.

Often, we knitters like to choose our own projects so perhaps a Gift Voucher might be the way forward?

As avid fans of Soak and Flatter, we cannot recommend these products highly enough as a thoughtful gift sure to be appreciated by many, not just the knitter. Fabulous delicately fragranced hand washing with no rinsing - a sure fire hit!
