Staff Picks: Lidy Nooij

December 09, 2020

Lidy chose a wooden umbrella swift (available in store only), a Knitpro 25cm circular needle for knitting sleeves and two gorgeous teal skeins of @litlg Merino Singles. Lidy says:⁠

"I love to make, and good tools and materials make the whole process even more enjoyable. By having the right tools for the job, I get to enjoy every step of the making journey. From winding my yarn into perfect cakes on my wooden swift, to powering through sleeve island with my favourite shortie circular needles. ⁠"

Using hand dyed yarns like Life in the Long Grass Merino Singles is the gift that gives twice: knitting with hand-dyed yarns is an adventure to see which colour will come next, then getting to enjoy a uniquely beautiful garment for many years to come.⁠
