  1. Throwback Thursday –
    Wrap Me Up Cardigan

    What better project to reminisce about now the weather is beginning to turn and the chill of autumn is in the air.  For this edition of Throwback Thursday we have the Wrap Me Up Cardigan. A massively inviting, cosy oversized cardigan designed by Maya and knit in the oh so soft Du Store Alpakka Hexa. This cardigan combines the magical softness...

  2. Throwback Thursday -
    Spitalfields Shawl

    For this, the first of the Throwback Thursday posts we are casting our minds back to 2015 and the 5th anniversary of Knit With Attitude. The aptly named Spitalfields Shawl takes its name from Maya's beginnings with Knit With Attitude. Maya started her shop as a stall at the Spitalfield's Market with two boxes of yarn. The Spitalfield's Shawl was launched at...

  3. What Maya Knits -
    Moonshadow Tunic

    Yay, I just finished something - and not just any something, but a gorgeous test knit I did for my lovely friend Julie Knits in Paris. If you've followed the blog for a while you'll know that this is not the first of Julie's designs that I've made, I do adore her sense of construction, and this is often what...

  4. Exploring Plystre

    It's hard to avoid here at Knit With Attitude that the Plystre project bags are our ultimate favourites when it comes to carrying around our knitting. We have the project bag, crossbody bag, pouch and backpack. With this post I want to take a thorough look at each model and get up close to all the amazing design features built into these bags...

  5. What to do with Mini Skeins!

    Mini Skeins! So tempting, so cute and you can't just have one. So what do you do with them all? I love minis and I seem to magpie towards them. So when we had the delivery of Black Elephant arrive bringing our total up to 32 colours, my mouth was watering! Minis are a great way of sampling a dyer's style or...

  6. New Yarn: G-uld - No. 4

    We have been smitten with G-uld ever since our amazing adventure on their dyeing workshop. Read more about our experience in my earlier blog post. Their naturally dyed yarns, in colours that defy imagination just have to be seen to be believed. We have been enjoying G-uld Alpaca for a while now but now we have a new member of the...

  9. A wonderful adventure -
    The G-uld Dyeing Workshop

    A couple of weeks ago Maya and I spent the most magical of times in Denmark. Being the first ever stockist of G-uld we were excited to really understand the ethos and process behind this wonderful company. Having admired posts from other attendees of G-uld's workshops we couldn't wait, we were really going! We arrived in Copenhagen and after a day...
  10. Yarn Pairings for Pom Pom 30

    The Autumn issue of Pom Pom is nearly here and this issue titled 'Sea Change' takes in a watery theme. Inspired by the sea and its ever-changing shapes and textures.Taking its cues from the sea itself or its contact and influence on the land. With a palette drawn from the sea, as well as the colour of the beach, stones...
  11. Knit a Neutral

    I thoroughly enjoyed doing the Knit a Rainbow series, it was a great way to explore the shop and focus into a single colour. But how can I forget neutrals! The fleeces of animals that we spin to make yarn are infinitely varied when it comes to colour. Undyed and neutral shades offer us an experience to create something as...
  12. Woollen or Worsted?

    Woollen or worsted? You may or may not have come across these terms before, they sound like so many others in the knitting world. Woollen does not necessarily mean something that is wooly and worsted is not just a yarn weight found commonly in America. What I'm talking about here is the way the yarn is spun. Woollen and worsted...
