2016 Vendor Spotlight: Inspiration Knits, Porpoise Fur, & Yarn in the City

Happy Friday yall! In the weeks leading up to the Geeky Puffin Knit Palooza, we want to highlight our amazing vendors who will be joining us to sell their wares on Saturday, 12-November.

This week we feature Inspiration Knits, Porpoise Fur, and Yarn in the City.

Louise has loads of lovely patterns in her store. As we looked through them to choose one to highlight, we were instantly drawn to the Siren Song. The stunning scallops and waves plus the 3 size options makes this a perfect pattern to knit. (And it doesn't hurt that it was knit in Dami's favourite colour, purple!)

Rachel of Porpoise Fur will not only be teaching classes for us, but also will be selling her lovely fibre at the vendor market. Have you heard about her Lab Goddess Fibre Club? Each month, club members receive 4oz of fibre (approximately 113 g) dyed in an exclusive colourway inspired by a great female scientist. We approve!

Our friends Alli & Rachel are the brains behind Yarn in the City. They recently hosted their annual Great London Yarn Crawl and their Yarnporium is coming up the weekend before the GPKP retreat. They also released their book, the London Craft Guide, last autumn. It is full of info about shops in London and the surrounding area plus fabulous patterns. Pick up your copy at our Vendor Market.
