  1. What Maya and George Knits - Throwback Tops

    We are exposed to inspiration and the most wonderful creations on a daily basis here at the KWA HQ, and that means that occasionally the urge to make will strike simultaneously - and hit both George and I at the same time. We will then embark on the same project, a friendly battle of the speediest needles (that I loose...

  2. Tessellated by Andrea Mowry - Colour Inspiration

    We have revamped the ever popular Tessellated Kits so I'm having a rummage through the shelves and putting together some colour combinations. The Tessellated pattern comes in either a vest or a pullover and both incorporate this beautifully simple slip stitch colourwork design. The vest is a simple round necked tank top knit from the bottom up. The pullover is...

  3. What George Knits - Kaarina Shawl

    Continuing on with my little scarf series knit in the relaunched Hey Mama Wolf yarn I have knit up another one. This time in Ylva. I have to say I am obsessing about one skein projects at the moment and especially little scarfs, they are so cute. They are great to have in the shop to showcase how the yarn...

  4. Recommended Yarn Third Edition - Part Two

    I've been a bit slow to follow up on part two of the Third Edition of Recommended Yarn. Better late than never. If you haven't seen the recommended yarn posts before the theme is to look at designs that have been written exactly for the yarns that we stock. We are often asked to substitute yarns for patterns but for...

  5. What Maya Knits – Tessellated Vest

    As most of you know by now, my knitting time is so precious to me – firstly as it is very limited, secondly because with time I've become slow. With this I noticed a change in my focus, where the end result used to be the main goal, it is now all about the process, the knitting in itself, and...

  7. Back to Black

    As spring has sprung and the days are getting longer dark yarn has become a little less intimidating. Black yarn has a mixed reception amongst crafters, it looks so beautiful and chic knitted up but it sure is tricky on the eyes. Absorbing every little bit of light making fine intricate stitches almost impossible to see, especially on dark evenings...

  8. Inspiration for Mazurka by Becci Pamely-Bast

    We love Riverknits and we had a great time catching up at Unravel a couple of weekends ago with Becci and Markus who are behind the Riverknits Chimera we stock. Becci was wearing the most amazing jumper knit in Chimera that was catching everyones attention. That jumper is the Mazurka by Becci herself and the pattern has now been released...

  11. Lotta H. Löthgren's Mushroom Cowl - Favourite Colour Combos

    We really enjoyed having Lotta in the shop the other weekend, it was so great meeting her and hearing about her designs. We loved seeing all the knits from her book Observations: Knits and Essays from the Forest and sharing that with other knitters who came by to see the samples and have a chat. We are excited to see...
