  1. 10 Years and Still Standing -
    kickstarter campaign

    Ten years ago, in January 2010, I dragged with me what I could carry onto three buses across London, off to set up Knit with attitude on it's very first day as a market trader at Greenwich Market.

  5. What George Knits - North Country Mitts

    Taking inspiration from our Quick Christmas Knits blog post I just couldn't resit knitting the North Country Mitts by Andrea Mowry. A super quick but still interesting to knit pair of aran weight fingerless gloves. Knitting in just one 50g ball. Also it was a good excuse to knit a little shop sample in the lovely Du Store Alpakka...
