  1. Interview with Jule from
    Hey Mama Wolf

    In our effort to create a full range of ethical and environmentally sourced yarns, we have spent a long time searching for a company making yarn dyed with plants, or naturally dyed yarn. This is an inherently niche idea, so while there are people out there naturally dying yarn, it was difficult to find someone dying that could also handle...
  2. Interview with Layla from Qing Fibre

    We have been so enjoying having Qing Fibre in the shop this summer, the bright colours are so much fun! It's been flying off the shelves and onto everyone's needles, but we recently got a restock and some new colourways in. We asked Layla, the brains and head dyer at Qing Fibre to answer a few questions that we have...
  3. New Yarn: From The Mountain ethical cashmere

    With a name like Knit With Attitude, we are always on the look out for yarns and projects that are working to make the world a better place. For a long time we have had a policy of no cashmere, as most of it comes from China where the origin is impossible to trace and  the animal and human welfare...
  4. Christmas Wishlist: Jess

    Things are starting to get a bit festive here at the shop. We asked all the staff to put together their wish list from the shop. You might not know if you haven't visited our shop in person, but we are actually 2 shops in one storefront. The other shop is called Of Cabbages & Kings, and sells jewellery, prints...
  5. Yarn of the Week: Lyonesse 4ply

    This week's yarn is Lyonesse 4ply from Blacker Yarns. Perfect for transitional seasons, it is a blend of Linen and Corriedale/Merino wool. This combination creates a subtle flecked fabric where the two fibres blend together. The yarn can have a very rustic appearance in the ball, but linen softens dramatically with knitting and washing, so don't let that dissuade you...

  7. Interview with Beata Jezek of Hedgehog Fibres

    We love getting new yarns in the shop, and having Hedgehog Fibre as a new brand is extra exciting! Their colourways are beautiful and speckled, from subtle neutrals to bright neons and everything in between. We currently have Twist Sock and Skinny Singles in the shop, but they are going quickly. Our first shipment sold out in two weeks!  We...
  8. Getting to Know: Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe

    Here at the shop we have been looking for some ethically produced, knitter friendly hand products to carry for our customers. We were so happy to find Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe, a small business in the US that produces just that. We have a few scents in a solid lotion bar that includes lanolin, a natural oil produced by sheep...
  9. Knitting with attitude

    Why knit? I'm sure there are as many reasons as there are knitters out there, and even more so, because I for one have many many many reasons for knitting and for why I love this activity. Easiest to point out maybe, are those purely egocentric reasons, but knitting can also be used as a tool to build relationships, bring...
  10. Indigo Memoirs

    I've been so lucky to have Indigo Memoirs discover Knit with attitude. Indigo Memoirs is an online 'magazine' and this is what they say about themselves: Indigo Memoirs are unseen experiences we seek and stumble upon as we search for a meaningful urban existence. We channel our intuition to discover such experiences in London and reveal them to you. Lovely...
