The Blurred Lines Jumper by Maya is a great cosy jumper and showcases the amazing hand dyed talent of Ninapetrina. Blurred lines is a comfortable and easy to wear jumper, but with added style and panache. A modern boxy shape...

  2. Knit a Rainbow - Green

    Here at Knit with attitude colour is one of the most debated topics. So instead of doing a fibre or brand feature, I thought I would do little colour ones instead. So this post bypasses projects and specific yarn weights and lets us just love colour. Hopefully if you have a favourite colour in mind, or just looking for that...
  3. Exploring Plant Dyes

    It always amazes me what range of colours you can get from plants and plant material. Not only can they be subtle and delicate, they can be strong, punchy and vibrant. Plant dyes offer us a natural alternative to industrially used dyes. Often coming directly from the plant itself or from plant extracts. This can cut down on the harsher...
  4. What do you get the knitter that has everything... part 2 - that special skein.

    Following on from my earlier blog post I have been thinking over what makes a good gift for a knitter. There are a lot of different choices for yarn so I have decided to focus on that special skein. These special skeins make the perfect knitters treat. They might not be something that a knitter would buy for themselves but...
  5. Yarn Feature: Garthenor Number 1

    We have had this yarn for a little while at Knit With Attitude and it's really nice to revisit it and give it it's time in the limelight. If you are looking for organic and British, Garthenor is for you. Starting in the 1990's Garthernor produced wool from their own flock, as they grew they have expanded into buying fleece directly...
  6. Interview with Jule from
    Hey Mama Wolf

    In our effort to create a full range of ethical and environmentally sourced yarns, we have spent a long time searching for a company making yarn dyed with plants, or naturally dyed yarn. This is an inherently niche idea, so while there are people out there naturally dying yarn, it was difficult to find someone dying that could also handle...
  7. Yarn of the Week: Tokonatsu

    This week our highlight yarn is Tokonatsu by Noro. This DK weight yarn comes in a range of 8 muted jewel tones. It is a blend of cotton, silk and viscose, making it a wonderful yarn for summer and warmer weather garments. The yarn has a slubby blend, giving the finished fabric a slightly tweedy texture. This effect makes a...
  8. Yarn Pairings for Pom Pom Quarterly Issue 18 Autumn 2016

    We may still be experiencing summer temperatures, but it can be hard for a knitter to not cast their eye ahead to the next season, when it may only be a few weeks away! What better time to get a head start on cooler weather garments and accessories than long summer days? Here at the shop we have the shade...
  9. Yarn Pairings for Amirisu Volume 10

    Amirsu have knocked it out of the park with another fantastic issue. Spring/Summer can be a traditionally difficult season for a knitting magazine, but there is no concern for that here! There are three beautiful tops, two sweaters and two shawls. Each of the pieces are wearable and practical, but with little details that really make them stand out. The...
  10. Summer Knitting with Jess

    It's starting to look like it will be another cracking summer season here in London, and that means it's time to take a holiday. We've organized an interview with the staff of the shop to see how they plan their vacation projects and what they may be bringing along. We will feature one of our staff members each week.  What...
  11. Fibre Feature Fridays: Cotton

    One of the hardest things about choosing a new project is deciding which yarn to use. We have lots of yarns in the shop that are great for summer and lightweight knits. Our Summer Top KAL is in full swing, so over the next few weeks we will feature different fibres that we carry and highlight what makes them good...
  12. My Mini Yarn Crawl

    …..London, England 9 787 426 people..... …..Trondheim, Norway 181 513 people.... When moving to London for the first time more than 8 years ago I was so surprised to find that there were less yarn shops in this enormous city than there were in my Norwegian home town. This has changed somewhat over the years, a few new shops have...
