Kathy's Knits

A specialist yarn shop in Broughton Street, Edinburgh, stocking particularly British yarns from quality producers such as Blacker Yarns, Jeanette Sloan, JC Rennie and New Lanark; also knitting accessories, some finished garments and jewellery. The shop is intended to be a haven for knitters who want to feel the quality of the yarn, browse, chat about a project and enjoy a personalised service.


Ravelry is an online community: a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information, and to look to others for ideas and inspiration.

The Guild has a group on Ravelry at www.ravelry.com/groups/edinburgh-guild-wsd.
