  1. Virtual Knit Night April 22nd

    We are still working with reduced staffing in the shop to maintain social distancing, meaning that Thursdays are my 'work from home' days. I try to get most admin done of those days, so it means quite a few hours spent staring at the screen. Spred sheets, documents, plans, endless amounts of sentences and numbers. But on Thursday evenings my...

  2. What Maya Knits - Filigree Sweater by Julie Knits in Paris

    There is this saying I've kept coming back to throughout my adult life, which goes something like 'if it ain't broken, don't fix it.' the saying originates from Punk culture and the DIY movement, it is about sustainability, and a reflection on why 'replacing' and 'adding to' is quite symptomatic of our current culture. But I seem to be adding...

  3. Virtual Knit Night April 15th

    My shop is open! After a couple of very intense weeks of sorting, organising, tidying and re-stocking, and finally my shop no longer looks like a warehouse, gone are all the boxes and my shelves are once more bursting with colours. What a transformation, and what joy. This Monday we were finally able to open the doors and welcome our...

  4. Virtual Knit Night April 8th

    One of the 'weird' UK particulars I learned when moving to London is that the tax year starts April 6th. Yes, that's right, not January 1st but a few days into April. This also means that we have to do our stock take at this time, so the day before yesterday we counted all the things, absolutely everything! And then...

  6. Virtual Knit Night April 1st

    Oh wow what a week, just wow! We've been so busy, on our feet at all times, and there is so much work to do. But FUN work! It might not be visible on 'the outside', but we are preparing to open the shop again April 12th, and with the UK vaccines happening and the covid numbers going down, it...

  7. Virtual Knit Night March 25th

    YES! The sun is shining here in London Town today - spring is definitely in the air and I've got my knitting MOJO back! You know I've had to rely on George to keep the last few knit nights going, but now I'm resurfacing after a few days of much needed rest - and tonight my friends, tonight we are...

  8. Virtual Knit Night March 18th

    Today is a joyous day! This morning I became one of the 25 millions of the UK adult population that have received their first dose of the vaccine, and let me tell you the relief is real! It really feels like the beginning of the end of this very very long year. I don't feel any uncomfortable side effects like...

  9. What Yarns to Dye?

    With the restock of The Modern Natural Dyer by Kristine Vejar I thought it would be a good time to take a little look at some of the yarns in the shop suitable for dyeing. Of course you can dye and over-dye just about anything with varied results. Different fibres will give you different effects as well as dyeing on...

  10. Virtual Knit Night March 11th

    I'm curled up in bed under the duvet feeling a bit under the weather today, warm drinks and netflix are on the agenda for me. Needles are of course at hand so there might be a few stitches happening as well in between snoozing. But don't worry - knit night is still on - and what is even better is...

  11. Virtual Knit Night March 4th

    Finishing my first Hilja Mitt I shamelessly did my nail polish in a matching colour for stylish showing off pictures. I'm eagerly casting on the second mitt tonight - but wonder if I'll get it done by the time my nails start flaking and I'll have to do it all over again. How about you? Are you showing off something...

  12. Virtual Knit Night February 25th

    Well, for once, I'm actually knitting! Any yarn shop owner will tell you that they've never knitted as little as after opening the shop - there just isn't enough time! But with both the Hilja KAL happening and my test for Strands of Joy, and with knit night tonight, actual knitting has finally taken precedence in my life. Oh I...
