Beautiful alpaca card by LiyanaStudio on Etsy (click here)   First of all a big congrats to Ellen & Nick who are having their civil wedding today! While they are getting married, we thought it was high time to also let the light shine on some other LN brides. Weather in Belgium can be unpredictable, to say the least. That’s why it’s smart to always have a soft and warm accessory at hand for when the wind picks up or the sun goes down. Of course Ellen will have her own LN knit at hand! But we’re still keeping our fingers crossed for some good weather. Stay tuned and keep an eye on the blog for pictures of her big day! For now, let yourself be inspired by the following pretty brides. They all look absolutely stunning. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us, ladies!   Pictures by David Wagelmans…

Travel inspiration: One Life Lodge!

If you follow LN on Instagram you might know that she’s been to Portugal in April. And not just to any place in Portugal. She went to stay at the One Life Lodge owned by her sister Katrien Kegels. And because LN is so enthusiastic about the place, we thought it would be nice to give you some reasons to go and check out the Algarve!   It’s no coincidence that this place was the inspiration for our SS18 collection. The colors, the views, the atmosphere. It just screams summer getaway! Pictures by Wouter Struyf (www.wouterstruyf.com)   Forget AirBnB, we’ve already found the best place to stay! The One Life Lodge is super cosy and perfectly located for all your holiday adventures. Don’t believe us? Let the pictures speak for themselves. And of course, breakfast is included. Yum! If you don’t want to worry about anything during your holiday, have…

03/05/2018

Another month, another knit! You might have met this classic lady already. She’s been with us for many years and is an absolute stunner to have in your wardrobe. I’m talking about miss Adorable Annie, the beautiful and versatile cardigan that’s addicting to wear and easy to combine. She’s made out of baby alpaca wool, combined with silk and linen to make her extra soft. You can wear her as an outer layer or even over a top with spaghetti straps so that she sits directly on your bare skin. You will love the feel of this amazing summer blend! Do you know that feeling when you’re outside enjoying your glass of cold rosé wine and suddenly there’s a chilly breeze? Then the Adorable Annie is the perfect cardigan to have with you. Take her anywhere, anytime! And as always, we have some outfits prepared for you. Dress with long…

Hi there! Welcome to the second “knit of the month” blogpost. We would love to introduce you to another beautiful knit, the Stylish Suzy!

Tips & tricks: how to care for your LN knit!

Tips & tricks: how to care for your LN knit!

23/03/2018

Have you always wanted to know how to care for your LN Knit? In this blogpost we will give you some tips and tricks that can come in handy on multiple occasions. When you take good care of your precious knit, you will be able to enjoy it for a very long time! Because alpaca fiber is a natural material, it might behave a little bit differently from the other materials that you’re used to. You might have noticed that after a while your knit starts showing some little fluffy balls and threads, which is called pilling. But don’t worry, the pilling is really easy to remove! Alpacas are fluffy animals, so it’s no surprise that your knits also can start to fluff a little bit. But after giving your precious garment a little bit of love and attention it will look as good as new! You can remove the…

Knit of the month – Lacy Laura

Knit of the month – Lacy Laura

16/03/2018

Yes, ladies and gentlemen. It is time for the crop top to move over because the cut-out shoulder top is back! It’s time to show some skin this summer (without the fear of a swollen belly after eating too much, hehe!) We absolutely love this trend and the Lacy Laura from the SS18 collection is the knitted proof of that. Imagine strolling along the beach in this beauty. The sun shining, seagulls flying through the air, wavy hair, the smell of sunscreen. Ah, summer… we can’t wait! Lacy Laura in Dove Grey (click here).   As you can see, this top is not made out of the same material as the Mini Maria scarf for example. It is a bit sturdier and has a finer stitch. How come, you ask? Well, we call this material baby linen. It’s a mix of baby alpaca yarn and linen, which makes it the…

An impression of the very first LN knitting workshops

An impression of the very first LN knitting workshops

I know it has been a while, but on the 2nd of December we organised the very first LN Knits knitting workshop in the LN Office. What a fun day it was! I mean, what is cooler than being able to make your own LN knit! During two beginner workshops Iris Stas, our own “knitting mama”, taught all the participants the basics of knitting. Repeat after me: “through, loop, pull, over”. At the end of the day, everyone went home with enough knowledge to knit their own scarf: how to cast on, right stitch, purl and how to cast off. I wonder what they are knitting now! Thank you everyone for participating in this wonderful workshop. We absolutely loved it. Interested in participating in a workshop yourself? Stay tuned for upcoming events by following us on Instagram, Facebook and through our newsletter. Let the pictures do the talking!

Hohoho Merry Christmas!

Hohoho Merry Christmas!

07/12/2017

It is that wonderful time of year again! That time when family and friends get together for a nice and cosy meal with a little bit of champagne (and/or wine) and of course a lot of presents! The LNKNITS team got together at Hemmat (go check it out on www.hemmatantwerp.com) and celebrated Christmas a little bit early this year. For the occasion we all got dressed up and used a beautiful LNKNITS piece as a festive accessory. Have a look and get yourself into the Christmas spirit! A couple of presents underneath the Christmas tree. From LNKNITS, of course (what else?!). Ellen and Lucy arrived first. Ellen was twinning with her mini-me. How cute is that? Ellen: Cosy Charlotte in New Light Grey Lucy: Cosy Charlene (kids) in Sky Blue  Charlotte finishing up on the final touches of the cosy Christmas table. Charlotte: Big Bertha in Black Eva, stylish as…
