We love our local yarn shops, don’t you? It’s always fun to find out the stories behind our favourite shops, so we sat down for a quick chat with Camilla from Knitting Needle Lane in Cambridge.
What’s your shop called? Is there a story behind the name?

What makes your shop special?

What are your most popular yarns?
Manos Del Uruguay are very popular as you get free patterns with each skein purchased.

What’s your favourite piece of knitting advice?
Knitting has an amazing therapeutic property – it is wonderful for de-stressing and a sense of calm.
Choose a simple no thinking project for stressful days and take some time to breathe into your project – the results are amazing.
