This spring, I discovered an uber-cool knitting needle company called knit affair. A young knitting industry company from Berlin, knit affair offers contemporary accessories for knitters. Knit affair features both straight and circular knitting needles, as well as a range of accessories, all of which are produced with respect to the environment. Super cute, with manufacturing that cares about the environment? I’m all about it!
Manufactured in Germany by local craftsmen and artists, knit affair needles are not only beautiful, but they’re a company whose products I’m glad to work with. These pretty needles use sustainably harvested wood from Germany and incorporate water-based colors and varnishes that comply with requirements for certified children’s toys. The finished needles are easy to knit with and don’t look like your grandmother’s needles.
While the “your-grandmother’s” phrase is so epically overused in knitting marketing, I’m using it literally here. As someone who learned to knit from her grandmother and great-grandmother Schnell (yes, I’m named Heidi, and my mom’s maiden name is Schnell), I really did learn to knit on extra needles they had around the house. When my great-grandma passed at age 102, I inherited many of her heavy, old-fashioned knitting needles that work perfectly fine to this day, but in no way do they pack the visual punch of their carefully-crafted, contemporary counterparts from knit affair.
I’ve been loving working with these fun needles, and knit affair has generously offered to sponsor a giveaway of their needles that’s open to international entries (seriously! everyone can enter!). How awesome are the neon tipped needles, the metallic option, and the colorblock ones too? It’s really cool to see someone producing needles that are not only fun to work with, but a way to make your public knitting oh-so-chic!
