  1. East London Knitters say Thank You NHS!

    Here we go folks. It’s time to banner together again... What better way to gather our friends from near by, far away and beyond, in a community project celebrating all things important right now – solidarity, camaraderie, nurture, kindness, support and love – through a message of gratitude! No, we’re not saying #ballstotrump this time (but we sort of are...

  2. Regular Virtual Knit Nights

    We did our first attempt of a virtual knit night via Zoom last Thursday, and all though some of us were struggling with online connections and understanding how this new tool works, it was such a great experience and everyone expressed a want for our knit nights to happen on a regular basis. We all need it! I strongly believe...

  3. WIP Wednesday - Festoon Socks

    The luxury of time has made me revisit some old WIPs (work in progress), that have sadly been left forgotten. For no reason whatsoever the lure of a new project has left these poor things unloved. So with this series I am starting a WIP Wednesday and I'm encouraging everybody to shine a light on some old projects, hopefully turning...

  4. What to Knit? Lace Edition!

    I have to say that I rarely knit with lace. Maybe I have this idea that a lace project would turn into an insurmountable task. But we have some lovely lace weight yarns at Knit With Attitude, ones that I have had my eye on for quite some time. Now that some of us might have more time on our...

  5. Let's Stash Dive

    During these strange times we may be spending a lot more time at home than we would usually do. But crafters should not fear, this is our time to reacquaint ourselves with projects we may have discarded, or special skeins of yarn that maybe lingering unloved. We should use this time to reconnect with our stash. I'm sure there is...

  8. Coping with Corona

    It was an amazing photo shoot last week. In many ways it felt like everything that is Knit with attitude – what it represents to me personally, friendship, creativity, drive and ambition, all melted into this one passion, the love for yarn and knitting. I was surrounded by this energy of achievement and pride, and I got to share this...

  9. Introducing Norne Yarn

    We were blown away when the delivery of Norne Yarn arrived just before Unravel. We knew it was going to be beautiful, but we didn’t realise it would be this beautiful! Sumptuous and rich with jewel like tones on the most luscious base imaginable. It’s enough to to make you weep with joy. So what is the Norne Yarn all...

  10. Yarn Pairings for Pompom Issue 32

    Spring! The days begin to lengthen, the sun shines just that little bit stronger and nature reminds us it's still there and bursts into life. The days are still cool, but there is a hint of warmth in the air. So much so we may shun our winter overcoats and choose a favourite hand knit as the only warming layer...

    I love these 'Time For a New Project' posts. It's my chance to have a fantasise about the colour potential of project. Plus rummaging around on the shelves of Knit With Attitude is my favourite thing to do. So when I saw Neon Skyline by Carol Feller and saw that it was knit in her yarn Stolen Stitches Nua my...
