  1. Christmas List: Natalie

    Today's shop wishlist comes from Natalie, one of our behind the scenes and weekday staff members. As before her list crosses between both the shops in our storefront, Knit With Attitude and Of Cabbages & Kings. Natalie works behind the scenes for both shops during the week, and teaches the knitting classes. A sweaters worth of Lettlopi in Charcoal, oatmeal...
  2. Christmas Wishlist: Jess

    Things are starting to get a bit festive here at the shop. We asked all the staff to put together their wish list from the shop. You might not know if you haven't visited our shop in person, but we are actually 2 shops in one storefront. The other shop is called Of Cabbages & Kings, and sells jewellery, prints...
  3. Book Review: WestKnits BestKnits Number 1 - Shawls

    Tis the season for knitting, and also for new book releases! We've got the first of what we hope will be an ongoing series from Stephen West, WestKnits BestKnits. It is subtitled Number 1 - Shawls, so hopefully there will be further titles in the future! The book features 13 of Stephen's most popular patterns. This book won't make as...
  4. Introducing Chunky Row!

    Have you heard of Chunky Row yet? They are a new company promoting super chunky 100% certified Shetland Wool. Founded by Charlotte while daydreaming in an office job last year, the aim is promote British industry and sheep breeds in a fun and exciting way. With the dropping temperatures and early nightfall, who hasn't dreamt of a cozy blanket, but...
  5. Help Us Keep Hackney Warm!

    Dirty sleeping bags curled up on cardboard mats under railway bridges and in shop doorways, fear of abuse and always the cold: rough sleeping is a tough and unkind existence affecting increasing numbers of homeless people in Hackney. It’s a problem that we think has a special resonance with us as knitters. We are after all in the business of...
  6. Book Review: Socks Yeah! Volume One by Rachel Coopey

    One of the best things about working in a knitting shop is getting a first crack at new yarns and books when they come in the door! We are loving Socks Yeah! Volume One, the latest self published title from Rachel Coopey which accompanies her recent yarn line of the same name. We asked Natalie to review it for the...
  7. Yarn Pairings for PomPom Issue 19 Winter 2016

    Crispy leaves underfoot, a bite in the air, and there are mince pies for sale in the shops. Sounds like it's time for the Autumn issue of PomPom! Issue 19 of the quarterly magazine is in the shop and online and once again it is a knockout. The 11 beautiful patterns include accessories and garments for cold weather, keeping you...
  8. Yarn of the Week: Bio Lana

    Sweater weather, we do love you. I mean, summer is nice and all, but give a knitter sweater weather! To celebrate its return, our yarn of the week is Bio Lana, from the Italian company Mondial. It's a 100% organic wool spun in Italy. We have it in a range of beautiful natural shades, as well as a few classic...
  9. Yarn of the Week: Hokkaido and Shikoku

    We have just had the Great London Yarn Crawl through our doors on the weekend, and what a success! It is always one of the most fun days of the year, and really feels like it kicks off the London knitting season. Last year we released the Spitalfields Shawl for the crawl, so this year we are celebrating its first...
  10. George's Zooey Baby Sweater

    I find working here at Knit With Attitude a terrible temptation. Not only is all the yarn stunning, Maya has a wonderful eye and great ethic when choosing the yarns she stocks. So when we started stocking Zooey by Juniper Moon, I just had to give it a go, and to add even more temptation we have just expanded the colour...
  11. Yarn of the Week: Faerytale

    The kids are back at school this week, so that must mean that sweater weather is here soon! And with sweater weather comes hats and scarves as well. It's the knitter's time of year. This week's yarn of the month is Du Store Alpakka's Faerytale, a 100% brushed alpaca. It has a tightly spun core for strength, but the brushed...
  12. Yarn of the Week: Excelana 4ply and DK

    This week's yarn of the week comes to you a day late due to the bank holiday weekend, we hope you all had a lovely time in the sunshine if you had the day off! The weather has had a little freshness to it here in London, and it has us turning our minds to jumpers and cardigans for cooler...
