    My design the Sea Mist Shawl was published as part of Laine Issue 11 in Summer 2021. Now it is available as a single pattern so I thought it would be fun to knit up a new version in some of the yarns we have here at Knit With Attitude. I have had it in my head to knit a...

  4. Virtual Knit Night March 10th

    Another world crisis is happening and the news coming from Ukraine is both terrifying and heart breaking. When everything seems overwhelming and as to falling apart around us, how do we justify our emotion, how are we supposed to or even allowed to feel? I've been thinking a lot about how we as humans are multi-faceted beings, our emotions are...

  8. Block around the Clock

    Every knitter has their own way of knitting and their own tension. These may slightly vary from knitter to knitter or vary a lot. Knitting styles, needle types and yarn varieties all play a part in the finished tension of a piece. That's why it's important to swatch. To knit to the same tension as specified in the pattern not...

  12. What George Knits - Shawlography Shawl

    Another Stephen West Mystery Knit-A-Long came a long in October and I was a bit on the fence about taking part. But then an idea entered my head and I couldn't get it out. What about knitting it in lace? The MKAL shawls are always huge, so it shrinking it down a bit would be OK I thought. Whats more...
