Founded as a friends knitting circle in South London in late 2005, I Knit owners Craig and Gerard were soon running a stall in Spitalfields Market before moving to an after-work shop in Bonnington Square, SW8 in September 2006. That shop closed in March 2008, but only so it could move to its present location at 106 Lower Marsh, Waterloo. Since then, the concept has gone from strength to strength, taking knitting to festivals, running the KNIFTA's (the Knitting in Film and Television Awards), and even moving into Gritting (Graffiti Knitting) in the Leake Street Tunnel.
The shop stocks a range of yarns from around Britain the world, as well as needles, crochet hooks and knitting books, and is open seven days a week, with late night opening on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. It is also the only knitting shop in the UK with an alcohol licence, and serves wines, beers and soft drinks.
