  1. Fibre Fridays: Merino

    Another instalment of our Fibre Fridays! This week we are talking about merino wool. Merino wool! you may say, That's not a summer yarn. It's all sheepy and warm and not at all good for summer knitting. Well, we are here to disagree! Merino sheep were first bred in Spain, and were highly prized Long before the invention of synthetic...
  2. Fibre Feature Fridays: Cotton

    One of the hardest things about choosing a new project is deciding which yarn to use. We have lots of yarns in the shop that are great for summer and lightweight knits. Our Summer Top KAL is in full swing, so over the next few weeks we will feature different fibres that we carry and highlight what makes them good...
  3. Blog Tour and Giveaway: Palette mini-collection

    Thank you for passing us the baton Julie, Knitted Bliss. Everyone loves hand dyed yarn. From the subtle shading of a semi-solid to the cacophony of variegated, there is something for everyone. You can find speckles and flecks of colour that will appear like sprinkles on your fabric, or longer blocks of colour that pool and shift and stripe together...
  4. Ed's Animals with TOFT

    When I saw these adorable crochet animals from TOFT I knew instinctively that they would make a terrific addition to the shop – and a fun way to introduce people to crochet! Even better, TOFT is a well-known UK company – regularly seen at yarn and fibre shows around the country while they build their brand, but also remaining true...
  5. Summer Top KAL 2015

    Spring and summer can be a difficult time for a knitter. The warm layers are begging to be thrown off and toes long to be free from wooly socks. In general, the inspiration or knitting mojo can fade in the face of longer days. Luckily for you, we've got just the ticket to keep your needles clicking all through the...
  6. Spring - inspirations and ideas

    Spring is beginning to show it's face here in London. The flowers are starting to bloom, crocus and daffodils, and the trees are just starting to bud. Here in the shop we've got all sorts of new yarns and patterns to inspire your needles for the warmer months! First up is an expansion of the cotton yarn from Debbie Bliss...
  7. February

    A few glimpses of what's been happening at Knit with attitude while we're waiting for spring. We're working on a new bright coloured window display. This little one was mighty pleased with his new robot hat. We've swapped the granny squares for a new fresh counter look. Gorgeous Kaja came by to show off her latest creation.
  8. A Creative Journey

    I've known Kaja for a few years now, one of the very first customers I had coming through my doors when setting up my shop and with time a dear friend, and I've had the pleasure of observing her approach to knitting. A process I find both fascinating and amusing. You see, where most of us decide on what we...
  9. What about learning something new?

    After hibernating trough the winter and the last cold spells, where all you want to do in cuddle up at home preferably under a nice cosy blanket, it is refreshing to finally feel that the energy level is rising. As the days grow longer and brighter I definitely feel more energetic. It is easier to find that initiative to get...

    Happy New Year! I hope you had a lovely holiday with time to relax with your friends and loved ones, and that your celebrations were joyful, leaving you invigorated and enthusiastic about the new year. I definitely feel energized, much because of my time off, but also because I'm so excited about the spring and the plans we have for...
  12. Furry Christmas Baubles

    Do you have everything sorted for Christmas yet? Everything neat and dusted, parcels bought and wrapped, festivities planned? I'm not even close! I mopped the kitchen floor last night after getting the kids to bed, and that's about it. No parcels sorted, no plans for the holiday, I've knitted five rows of the sweater that was supposed to be hubby's...
