Paddington Knit and Natter

Last December I went to my first Knit and Natter at a delightful yarn shop called Knitch and I wrote about it here...



Yesterday when I went to the Knit and Natter there I found a few changes...
Firstly there was a coffee cart near the front door...


And the prices were very reasonable


In charge of the coffee cart was a young man called Brayden. He made the most wonderful cups of coffee and this talented barista also mixes his own blends of beans...the coffee was really good! Between customers Brayden kept busy...

A big smile for the camera...

The hat wasn't finished but Brayden modelled it for the camera...the yarn is Noro Silk Garden...


Later in the day I noticed a photo of the finished hat on the shop's Facebook page and the hat was indeed floppy just as Brayden had planned...it looked great!
Last December I purchased a number of wound balls of some special yarns that Anissa was selling. Two went for Christmas gifts and the one pictured below was a little extra I put in the recent Bag Giveaway that I ran on the blog...


Dorothy's name was drawn as the winner and she was thrilled to find the ball of yarn in her prize...it wasn't long before Dorothy sent me a photo of what she made with the yarn...
Take a look at this lovely scarf...the colour graduations are gorgeous.

So fellow Brisbanites I really recommend a visit to Anissa's lovely shop. If you don't knit or crochet, just drop in for a coffee perhaps? Anissa also runs a number of classes and the shop hosts a number of groups who come in to knit and socialise. Anissa is a great supporter of Knitting for Brisbane's Needy and her shop is stocked with so many divine yarns, kits and ideas.

Every yarn / fabric shop needs a Brayden. Gorgeous shading in that wool...I'll definiately pay a visit one day.

Yay for Brayden - what a sweet fellow. It's obvious he enjoys life and, boy, yes, his coffee prices are reasonable!
Love the scarf too - very pretty :D)
