  1. All Change Please

    In the last few newsletters I've told you the story of how Knit with attitude came to be, and I've teased and dropped hints about big changes ahead – I guess it is time to reveal what our next chapter will look like.⁠ I'm feeling rather bittersweet today as we announce some exciting news at Knit With Attitude, but it’s...

  4. Wensleydale - New Yarn from Black Elephant

    Another exciting new yarn from Black Elephant has arrived. This time in the form of 100% British Wensleydale wool. We have noticed a big trend in the appreciation of British wools. This has been for a whole number of reasons, for example the environmental impact of long distant shipping or for the most basic of tactile senses. Our hands have...

  6. Virtual Knit Night September 8th

    Today is the first day, I think in three months, that we have temperatures below 20C, And I have to admit I am slightly relieved. I'm sure I'm not the only one sleeping better with cooler nights, and the nip in the air inspires me to cast on ALL THE THINGS! So I am very curious to see if you...
  7. That's Just Pants!

    Knitted pants you say? If someone had suggested this for me some years back, I think I would have laughed so hard my coffee would have splurged out my nose. I mean, my kids grew up wearing super cute soakers and me-made leggings for sure, but seriously - for adults? I totally could not have pictured myself making some, and...

  8. Sweater Weather yet?

    Right, so, I do actually like heat - but his year it seems to be getting to me. My body has turned to syrup, my mind is mush, I don't seem to be able to form one coherent line of thought, and everything goes so slowly, even the easiest of tasks takes for ever to do. here ever I've been...

  9. Virtual Knit Night August 11th

    You know when you're going on holiday and panic strikes because you can't make your mind up to what project to bring? So not being able to make a decision you bring a wider selection of WIPs (work in progress) and all the yarns to go with them! This time around this was NOT me, I was going to strategise...

  10. Just one skein...

    The G-uld No.4 Minis keep calling to me every time I walk past them in the shop. The colours are just so lovely and the Merino/Gotland blend base is beautiful. Just like the bigger 100g equivalents the G-uld No.4 Minis are all naturally dyed by G-uld in Denmark but instead of 100g these come in a handy 25g. The meterage...

    It's hotting up but our knitting hands still want to keep busy. So what do they crave, plant fibres! Plant fibres are the cool breeze of the knitting world and we have just had a delivery of the lovely Nurturing Fibres, Eco-Cotton, Eco-Fusion and Eco Bamboo. These hand dyed yarns are what your hot hands have been asking for. Nurturing...

  12. Virtual Knit Night July 14th

    I just have to admit defeat in this friendly knitting race of ours, as George has already finished his. In fact, in this heat he is strutting around in his summer tank, just proving what a brilliant summer garment this is, and I am really eager to get mine done as well! So it's pretty obvious what I'll be working...
