Testimonials

I fell in love with your hat in Martinborough last winter but was away for an extravagant escape so couldn’t justify it…it’s quietly waited in the wings of my desires since.
A good hat is a good friend, I’ll be sure to take it adventuring.
Many thanks for the lovely personal service, my hat feels warmer for it.

I saw your hats at Scout Dublin on my first day there (8 day trip around Ireland) and I so regretted not buying one! So I decided to buy online and am happy that I was able to design my own 🙂 Excited to wear the hat!
Thank you,

Hello Liadain,
I bought one of your lovely hats from the Irish  design shop in Dublin this summer when we were over visiting my husband’s cousins. I gave that hat to my sister for Christmas and she has worn it a lot, and several other family members like it so much that they asked me if they could have one too – also one is for me!

So I hope the colour combinations I have chosen prove as popular!

My hats arrived safely and look great! Thanks very much. Another brother in law is already asking for one for his birthday , so I expect I’ll be in touch again soon!

Hi Liadain.
First of all,thank you so much !
My girlfriend absolutely loves it (hat).
And Here is the thing.
Actually I and my girlfriend weren’t sure if we keep this relationship after we leave Ireland because she is from Spain and I’m from Japan and we knew it’s going to be tough in the long time distance relationship .
But right after I gave her the present she asked me to keep in relationship even though it’s going to be a long distance relationship. (It turned out we both wanted to keep this relationship but we both were just scared to ask) and I’m sure the present was like one of the triggers to ask.
So Thanks again for lovely hat and card !

I love your products and think it’s so great that your love of knitting with your mum and grandmother has given you much pleasure and success. It is a lovely story. You must be very proud.

Oh my goodness, the rain the past while has been crazy!
So this is what you got to do as soon as the sun comes out... hop in the car and go for it.

These swims are what restore me.
It's my busy time of year and my head is full of lists and jumping from making pompoms, to writing bios, to doing a slideshow presentation, to emails, packing orders, doing patterns. Tis a lot like.

I have zero complaints to be honest just so grateful for the swims and where I live. I'm very feicin lucky!

And for once this reel didnt take an age to make either! A lil slice of my day for you! And the water was lovely.

Here I am a few weeks ago adding ribs to this sweater vest. The wool is from @moyhillfarm and has been dyed by Malú @talu.earth.

This is the first sample where I knit the main front and back on the chunky knitting machine and am now hand knitting on the ribs to add the pops of colour that LA knitwear is known for.

Would you like to see more videos like this or are they a bit slow! Haa I've always tended to be somewhat long winded!!!

Made Local launches today!
This wonderful initative by @dccireland to support and promote all the beautiful craft being made in Ireland.

As the festive season of gifting approaches and all the worries of the world are on our shoulders, it feels as important as ever to choose our gifts for ourselves and others with care for our needs and our loved ones needs.

To consider how these items will live in the world.
How useful will they be?
Will they bring joy?
Will they have a long life of being loved, used, reused, recycled and upcycled?
Will they return to the earth with ease?
Who will do a happy dance when they receive your order?
How far will the item travel?
Do you know where it was made and who made it?

We are so lucky in this wee country to have so many amazing skilled makers creating beautiful useful products that tick all these boxes. I do hope that this campaign encourages a lot of happy dances in studios around the country over the next few months.

I'm so grateful to each order that comes in and love my happy wiggle dance. Sure maybe that could be a part of the campaign!!?? Videos of Happy Dances all round? What do ye think?

Le grá & buíochas
With love & gratitude
Liadain & the knit team

This beautiful photo popped up for me recently. It's from the first photoshoot in 2016 and I love it.

It's amazing how far this little brand has come and where we set our sights on going. This year has been slow but sometimes you need to pause and let new things ferment until they start fizzing enough to pop into the world. Hmmm maybe I need a cold fizzy drink!

I am currently making my way to the UK for a holiday. I'll be buzzing around the Glastonbury area and down to Cornwall. Have you any tips or must sees? Would love to hear your suggestions. Sacred sights, hidden gems, magical swimming spots, tasty food, wild hearted people. We will be car camping with a teeny tent, so any campsites or wild camping spots.

I'm looking forward to this adventure. Here's to a lán spraoi agus fuinneamh fiáin ar an turas!

Grá mór
Liadain ♡
