  1. WIP Wednesday – Roland Jumper

    Carrying on from last weeks WIP Wednesday post I am revisiting my old WIPs and starting by exploring the yarns used. Hopefully with the aim that I will reignite my passion for them and start posting some FO (finished object) Friday posts! I feel really guilty about this poor forgotten jumper. The reason I stopped is because it was coming...

  2. WIP Wednesday - Festoon Socks

    The luxury of time has made me revisit some old WIPs (work in progress), that have sadly been left forgotten. For no reason whatsoever the lure of a new project has left these poor things unloved. So with this series I am starting a WIP Wednesday and I'm encouraging everybody to shine a light on some old projects, hopefully turning...

  3. What to Knit? Lace Edition!

    I have to say that I rarely knit with lace. Maybe I have this idea that a lace project would turn into an insurmountable task. But we have some lovely lace weight yarns at Knit With Attitude, ones that I have had my eye on for quite some time. Now that some of us might have more time on our...

  4. Let's Stash Dive

    During these strange times we may be spending a lot more time at home than we would usually do. But crafters should not fear, this is our time to reacquaint ourselves with projects we may have discarded, or special skeins of yarn that maybe lingering unloved. We should use this time to reconnect with our stash. I'm sure there is...

    We were blown away when the delivery of Norne Yarn arrived just before Unravel. We knew it was going to be beautiful, but we didn’t realise it would be this beautiful! Sumptuous and rich with jewel like tones on the most luscious base imaginable. It’s enough to to make you weep with joy. So what is the Norne Yarn all...

  7. Yarn Pairings for Pompom Issue 32

    Spring! The days begin to lengthen, the sun shines just that little bit stronger and nature reminds us it's still there and bursts into life. The days are still cool, but there is a hint of warmth in the air. So much so we may shun our winter overcoats and choose a favourite hand knit as the only warming layer...

  8. Time For a New Project - Neon Skyline by Carol Feller

    I love these 'Time For a New Project' posts. It's my chance to have a fantasise about the colour potential of project. Plus rummaging around on the shelves of Knit With Attitude is my favourite thing to do. So when I saw Neon Skyline by Carol Feller and saw that it was knit in her yarn Stolen Stitches Nua my...

  9. What Maya Knits - Eifelgold Shawl

    “I'm not a shawls person” is clearly a lie I've been telling myself forever. After making a humongous DK weight shawl a couple of years back (the Askews Me! by Stephen West) and having worn it constantly since then, maybe not through the worst summer heat wave, but other than that every single day is like … I can feel...

    There is something exciting about a new year. It's full of anticipation for what the year ahead has in store for us. New friends we will make, and new things to discover and learn. What better time of year to set yourself a challenge. This could be something simple like revisiting a forgotten past time, or something altogether more challenging...

  11. What George Knits - North Country Mitts

    Taking inspiration from our Quick Christmas Knits blog post I just couldn't resit knitting the North Country Mitts by Andrea Mowry. A super quick but still interesting to knit pair of aran weight fingerless gloves. Knitting in just one 50g ball. Also it was a good excuse to knit a little shop sample in the lovely Du Store Alpakka...
