...to everyone who came along to yesterday's opening day for our new shop. We hope you all loved the new place and will make it a home away from home! We've added our photos to the Flickr group, and if you have your own then please feel free to share them with us there.
We must say a very special thanks to Lynsey, Tom, Tom, Claire, Celia, Graham and Alix who, at various times over the last week or so have lifted, painted, stocked and scrubbed various bits of I Knit London to get it ready!
One of the highlights of the day would be that it wasn't just our friends who came out to celebrate. We saw many old friends and made many new ones too. One person we would never have chosne to be without though, sadly, couldn't make it yesterday; we certainly would never have chosen to do this without Esther, who has been a longtime friend to IKL since she came to one of our pub knit nights way back in 2006. Esther, we missed you and we send our love and hope you'll be back with us soon.
This Wednesday's knitting group night will be opening party mark 2...see you then!
