Knit of the month – 3 ways to wear the Stylish Suzy

Knit of the month – 3 ways to wear the Stylish Suzy

11/04/2018

Hi there! Welcome to the second “knit of the month” blogpost. We would love to introduce you to another beautiful knit, the Stylish Suzy! Same as the Lacy Laura of last month, the Stylish Suzy is a baby linen knit. Baby linen is a pretty mix of baby alpaca (70%) and linen (30%), which makes it the perfect summer blend. Are you looking for a versatile jumper that you can wear with almost anything? Then the Stylish Suzy might be your ideal fit! Don’t believe us? Let us show you how we would style this jumper in Dove Grey/Black for three different occasions.   Amadi Cropped Culottes from Amour Vert (click here), Stylish Suzy in Dove Grey/Black (click here), Abiko Black Clutch from Matt & Nat (click here) & Lacy High Sandal Black Suede from Filippa K (click here). Go classy and combine the Stylish Suzy with a pretty pair…

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…

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!

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…

LN fans in the spotlight: Tineke

Sometimes there are certain customers that come by the LN Knits Flagshipstore that often that you start to recognise their faces. And because I haven’t been working for LN for a very long time (however, more than 4 months already! Time flies!), getting to know the customers is one of my favourite parts of the job. I reached out to a lovely young woman that I suspect is a bit of a DIY addict. Tineke was more than happy to meet with me for this very last blogpost in the series “LN Fans in the spotlight” of FW17/18. Let me introduce you to this 26-year old woman from Antwerp, who is also the mother of a cute little guy called Cédric, who just turned one. Tineke’s story starts with a friend of a friend, who owned a beautiful scarf that she absolutely fell in love with. Guess which brand it…
