    Herat Snood

    For this edition of Throwback Thursday we are looking at the Herat Snood. Knit in the super special From the Mountain - Afghan Cashmere.

Natalie says of the design: 'There’s nothing...

    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.

    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.
