  3. Test Knit Open - Knitting With Attitude

    It has been more than a year since George and I started working on the Knit with attitude's 10 year anniversary book. I can't describe the feeling when all our designers came back to us with their samples, and the joy and enthusiasm we had when announcing the upcoming book last autumn. Everything seemed to come together beautifully, what a...

  5. Virtual Knit Night July 23rd

    We launched our Summer KAL – KWA does Milkweed last week, I'm barely able to put my knitting down. The feel of the two threads twisting together around my fingers, the linen and the silk, the lush smooth and crisp fabric it makes, let me tell you, this project is such a pleasurable tactile experience and I can't wait to...
  6. Virtual Knit Night July 16th

    I was meant to finish up a few wips, but then I fell in love with not one, but two, jumper projects. I'll be working on one of them tonight and am super-excited about showing you the progress!

  7. A Summer KAL - KWA does Milkweed

    If you've followed my social media lately you know I've been talking about the wonders of thinner weight yarns. Now, let me be clear on one thing, I am not a lace knitter, I just don't have the patience in me to complete those amazingly beautiful but oh so stunning projects knitted with very fine yarn on very thin needles...

  8. New Yarn - Countess Ablaze Rebel Batch Resist & Hope

    The last time I saw Countess Ablaze was back in February at the Unravel Festival. We were so lucky to be stand neighbours, and in between managing our stands we hung out in the back chatting, laughing, ranting, putting the world straight (as one do). “I always plan to be sensible when I see you, I said, to plan my...

  10. Virtual Knit Night July 9th

    This week I learned to drink gin, and so so so paying for it afterwards, I'm not sure whether or not to take my new knowledge on to tonight's knit night.

  12. What Maya Knits - KORO KORO Shawl

    As the pandemic spread and London went into lock-down, I went into melting mode. Turning to my knitting for comfort, none of my ongoing projects gave the nurture or the calm I was looking for. Maybe this is because they were newly started summer projects, in thinner yarns and airy stitches, neither carried the promise of what I needed the...
