  1. The Yarn Ball Yarn Bowl

    Do you know what a yarn bowl is? For many knitters it is their most precious and cherished possession. It has a very practical use, to hold your yarn and keep it from rolling away while it is being knitted with, but yarn bowls are often pieces of art themselves. Beautifully made and decorative, and of course they can be...
  2. Introducing Louisa Harding

    In my personal collection – The Magical World According to Miss Millie I first came across Louisa Harding years ago, when as a new mum I bought a pattern collection named 'The Magical World According to Miss Millie', and found myself completely enhanced by the fairytale world of Louisa's children clothes. Sourcing new yarns to introduce to Knit with...

    I'm so excited to tell that we finally have most of the Wool and the Gang yarns (and some kits too) in stock! From the 'classic' super chunky Crazy Sexy Wool, to the most luscious newcomer in the family Sheepaca, a yarn as elegant as it's name! Recently I grabbed hold of one of the Gangstas Anna Martinou and asked...
  5. Great London Yarn Crawl 2014

    September has been a whirlwind of activity in the shop with the drop in temperatures. It’s nice to see regular customers back from holidays and everyone getting excited about their autumn projects. One of the things that kept me busy in the shop was that Knit with attitude participated once again in the Great London Yarn Crawl. This is a...
  6. Profile: Jacqueline Sava - Soak

    Another newcomer to the shop this summer – Soak Wash.

  7. Profile: DesignETTE

    As you probably have noticed, first half of 2014 brought lots of changes to Knit with attitude, our refurbishment meant much more shelf space and finally I've had the chance to expand our selection and introduce more new brands, and there is even more to come...

  10. 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...
  11. #kwasummer Give Away

    What's your summer knitting project? I'm on my way back home to Norway for my summer holiday and just popped by the shop to make sure I have enough yarn for my summer knits. It seems like I've got sleeves issues these days, as this is what's left to do on several of my projects, and now I hope to...

The Sansa & Khaleesi Jewellery Workshop was buzzing, and there were plenty of bubbly drinks for everyone (and snacks, after all we're civilised people). I was asked...
