Woolly prizes for treasure seekers..

IMG_8238As part of the ELYT’s 3-woman campaign to make 18th June into Hackney’s woolliest day ever, we want you to capture your knittiest East London Yarn Triangle moments on  your phones and post the pictures on instagram using the hashtags: #eastlondonyarntriangle #wwkipday2016 and to tag whichever shop you’re closest to – either @knitwithattitude @barleymassey or @wildandwoollyshop – or tag us all if you’re not sure.

We’ve got a fun-sized 10% off at each of the shops in the Triangle for ELYT knitters that have posted at least 3 tagged pictures, but there’s lots more treasure waiting for teams who can come up with..
