A New Year… and plenty new in store at loveknitting!

Wishing a wonderful new year to all our customers at loveknitting! We’ve been looking back over the last year and wanted to share some of our milestones with you all…


A new store!

After months of painstaking planning, finally went live in the last few days of July. Our wonderful customers were ever so patient and kind, bearing with technical glitches in our first week and bringing problems to our attention. By the end of August we had several hundred customers, and we remain very grateful to every one of you!


New products:

In October, we expanded our range with new lines in Debbie Bliss, Louisa Harding and Rowan… We also expanded the colour range for many existing lines, got in some cushion patterns (after popular demand), and most excitingly of all introduced two new brands: Noro and DY Jester


In November we introduced six new Sirdar lines, the very popular Snowflake from Snuggly, the Addi lace set and our Christmas patterns.


New team:

Matt joined in September to help us make the site work more efficiently; Helen came in October to get us more involved with the knitting community. The wonderful Kevin, Laurice and Leszek joined the warehouse in November to make sure our rapidly-growing daily orders are beautifully packed and swiftly dispatched. But our most exciting addition was our EXPERT KNITTER Natascha, who joined in December to answer all your knitting dilemmas (when we’re not distracting her with our own of course!)


Looking ahead

So what can you expect this year from loveknitting? For a start, our new blog is now up and running so expect more posts. We will shortly be launching some very exciting monthly competitions so watch this space closely! There will be continued improvements to the site – do keep letting us know how to make your shopping even easier. One of these will be postage options letting you choose tracked delivery and a faster international service. Many of you also asked us for gift vouchers, and we were very upset not to be able to get them in time for Christmas – that will certainly be rectified by next Christmas!

Finally, of course, we will continue to bring you new lines and new brands. So far this January we have: more shades of Anchor Artiste Metallic; Rowan Creative Focus Worsted; and, after you asked for them, five wonderful sock yarns from Regia.

Coming soon in our Rowan section: Rowan Felted Tweed (by popular demand); Kidsilk Haze Trio and Kidsilk Haze Glamour (with sequins!); Rowan Tumble; Rowan Alpaca Cotton, Rowan Coulourspun and Rowan Summerspun.

We wouldn’t be where we were today without the support of our amazing customers, and your wonderful feedback makes it all worthwhile. So keep letting us know how we’re doing, and most importantly, if you want new brands on the site, let us know!

With heartfelt thanks and the very best wishes for 2013 from all the team at loveknitting
