  1. Design Inspiration for Vivacious Botanicals

    You might think that one becomes a bit blasé by working here at Knit with attitude, I mean there is literally beauty everywhere you look, and one could assume that this simply has to dampen the enthusiasm a bit… But no, nah, not at all and absolutely by no means - this does not happen! I do believe that for...

  2. Recommended Yarn - Part Two

    We spend most of or days recommending different yarns for different projects.

  4. Colour Inspiration - Rainy Days

    I'm continuing with my colour inspiration posts with the idea of not looking at a particular colour but having a particular theme to guide me. Next up in the series is Rainy Days.

  6. Unspun, Pre-wool, or Plötu – but what is it and how to work it?

    There is a Norwegian saying that goes something like this: A much loved child is known by many names. And so goes the story with this type of yarn, lush, warm and quite intriguing, known as Unspun, Pre-wool, or Plötu – but what is it and how to work it?  Plötu in Icelandic is directly translated to 'board' or 'disc...

  7. That's Just Pants!

    Knitted pants you say? If someone had suggested this for me some years back, I think I would have laughed so hard my coffee would have splurged out my nose. I mean, my kids grew up wearing super cute soakers and me-made leggings for sure, but seriously - for adults? I totally could not have pictured myself making some, and...

  9. What to do with Mini Skeins!

    Mini Skeins! So tempting, so cute and you can't just have one. So what do you do with them all? I love minis and I seem to magpie towards them. So when we had the delivery of Black Elephant arrive bringing our total up to 32 colours, my mouth was watering! Minis are a great way of sampling a dyer's style or...

    We have been smitten with G-uld ever since our amazing adventure on their dyeing workshop. Read more about our experience in my earlier blog post.

  12. New Yarn: Kettle Yarn Co. - Ramble
