Beautiful Knitter

I am very happy to have been featured by Beautiful Knitters

Meet E, from the United Kingdom! 🇬🇧

E lives by the sea in a village in North West England with his partner and their two Staffies.

Favourite yarn store: My favourite has to be @stephen.and.penelope in Amsterdam. Living in the UK, it’s a little far to go to every week, but I would if I could.

Favourite yarn: I guess my favourite yarn would be toss up between @hedgehogfibres and @malabrigoyarn. I have used both to make socks, and they are truly beautiful to work with.

Why do you knit?: One of the reasons I knit is because I can. I learned when I was a kid, and picked it up again about 4 years ago – much to the surprise of my partner, who had no idea I knew how to knit. Being male also inspires me, as knitting has been thought of as a female hobby for so many years.

Most challenging project (and why?): I would say one of the most challenging projects I’ve done was @westknits’ Old Forge. I saw it on Instagram and thought it would be great to knit. It’s huge (I love massive projects), and has a lot of techniques I haven’t done, like knitting in the round, which now I love to do as much as I can. Although many feel that cable work is hard, I find it really easy and relaxing.

What’s your new favourite thing?: My new Nespresso coffee machine. I have tonnes of tech items at home, but this really is a boom in my life. I can have espresso all the time whilst knitting, without all the messing about.
