Some news

Remember that nice and tidy workshop area I showed you in the “Welcome to my world’ post, well sometimes it looks like that, and sometimes it looks like this:

As winter is on our door steps we’re trying to get everything sorted and stocked up for Christmas, and as you can see we’ve had deliveries, plenty of them. We are introducing
a lot, and I really mean a lot, of new qualities and brands at Knit with attitude this winter.
I’ll use the next few blog posts to show off some of the new yummy woolly treats we have in store for you, so prepare for some proper yarn porn to drool over, and we’ll kick off with the new gorgeous yarns from Fyberspates and The Mirasol Collection.

Paqu Pura from The Mirasol Collection is a delicate 4ply Alpaca yarn, suitable for light weight projects. It has an unique colour range of self-striping colours that floats into each other and blends perfectly. This subtle colour-changing effect looks great in both garments and accessories. Fyberspates Scrumptious DK High Twist is a crisp and firm, still lusciously soft, version of the bespoke Scrumptious DK which is exclusive to Fyberspates. The fibre content is 45% Silk and 55% Merino, which gives it the most amazing drape and sheen. Scrumptious DK High Twist is hand dyed which gives it a subtle colour variation throughout the skein.

That’s it for now people, I hope you enjoyed the picture show, and rest assure there is more to come.

PS. As I’m publishing this post our workshop area is back to normal, pretty, nice and tidy.

Welcome to my world

A few weeks ago we were privileged with a lovely visit from the very talented Leah Band (seriously, check out her website, this woman knows her stuff). As the look of our shop is finally coming together with all it’s bits, pieces and crazy ideas, we though it was the right time to have a proper photo shoot. We just received the pictures, and we’re so pleased with how our space came out, just the way we wanted it to. I hope you’ll enjoy the tour!
