Where to buy knitting supplies

Needles: Our teacher Susan has a few knitting needles you can use in the class depending on the project (email us to ask about borrowing these),  but you may want to buy your own (they average £2 a pair at C&H) as then you can carry on at home in between classes - it's very addictive!! 

All supplies: C&H fabrics or Yak in Brighton, The Dropped Stitch in Portslade or Shoreham Knitting and Needlecraft in Shoreham, or try yell.com for knitting supplies shops in your local area.
