  1. My Honey

    Finally something has been completed (and I've got the pictures to prove it)! Nemi's new cardi is the My Honey by Elena Nodel. It is such a fun knit with lots and lots of constructional details making sure you'll never get bored. I'm a huge fan of Elena's designs and have made several of her kids garments. This time I...
  2. How to build a yarn shop...eh...2

    If you have followed my woolly adventures for a while you know that moving into new premises last year was a mile stone which meant (and still does mean) a lot to me! Imagine that, new bright and large premises on the high street! You also know that when we were finished building the shop I swore to never put...

  5. Spring Flower Crochet Pattern

    Spring is definitely in the air, and over at Knit with attitude we've been busy crocheting flowers for our Easter window display. I'm not quite sure what it is, but certain universal motifs like flowers, hearts and stars put a smile on most people's faces. Surrounded by colourful flowers, we've sure had a few happy days at work. Those of...

  7. Inspiring Knits

    Entering a yarn shop, approaching those walls covered in woolly loveliness, sometimes it can be hard to visually imagine how a yarn will look like knitted up as a garment. You are just so completely surrounded by colour it can be hard to mentally distinguish between them. I find it particularly difficult to choose multicoloured yarns, although they look pretty...

Its process encourages investigation, understanding and appreciation of the raw materials, which are at the basis of every textile. Skillfully and sustainably produced, Sheep of Steel hope...
  9. Knitting with attitude

    Why knit? I'm sure there are as many reasons as there are knitters out there, and even more so, because I for one have many many many reasons for knitting and for why I love this activity. Easiest to point out maybe, are those purely egocentric reasons, but knitting can also be used as a tool to build relationships, bring...
  10. But what does it look like...?

    One of the best parts of my job is to receive deliveries, and I'm sure this goes for everyone working in a yarn shop. There is this very particular excitement when opening the boxes, being the first one to open the bags and pull out the lovely woolliness neatly winded up in fresh skeins or balls. Admiring the texture, the...
  11. Spring colours from WAK

    I've just had a delivery from the wonderful We Are Knitters, and they are introducing new spring colours! All of them are of course available in the web shop, but as a taster I thought I should show you a few of them, so here you go: red, navy blue and honey.
