Vote in the British Knitting Awards

Let's Knit! magazine is organising the British Knitting Awards 2014 and voting is now open! There are a multitude of categories, all of which celebrate Britain's burgeoning knitting industry, whether it be the big brands or the smaller, artisan companies yapping at their ankles. The categories are:
  1. Best baby yarn brand
  2. Best independent yarn brand
  3. Best value yarn brand
  4. Best luxury yarn brand
  5. Best sock yarn brand
  6. Best overall yarn brand
  7. Best Local Independent Yarn Store
  8. Best chain store/multiple
  9. Best pattern house
  10. Best online shop
  11. Best knitting blog
  12. Best website
  13. Best knitting needle range
  14. Best accessories range
  15. Best ready-to-use knit kits
  16. Best British Yarn
  17. Best Yarn Shop Day Experience
  18. Best knitting show/event
  19. Best knitting designer
  20. Best Book (2014).
I've already voted, recommending some of the designers and companies I've blogged about here. All people who vote have the chance to win, and I quote, "a wonderful knitting stash worth over £200". Let's Knit! magazine also has a campaign to support local yarn stores. It's great to see the knitting press championing UK knitting designers, makers and sellers.

In 2013, Debbie Bliss won best book and came runner up in the best luxury yarn and best baby yarn categories. Black Sheep Wools won best independent store and best knitting blog. Who will win this year? Vote and see!
