  1. Virtual Knit Night May 13th

    I'm in between projects, or that is, I have secured my steeks, and there is no way I'll be making the first cut without George mentally holding my hand, so that will just have to wait until over the weekend. Meaning, I'm in between. Oh the struggles, what to do? Either I continue on my unfinished projects pile and work...

  2. Virtual Knit Night May 6th

    The body of my colourwork cardigan is done, and I'm about to do steeking for the first time. I've been debating whether or not to use a sewing machine to secure my steaks before making the first cut, but something in me didn't sit comfortable with the thought of non-stretchy cotton thread and elastic knitting, so I did a bit...

  4. Virtual Knit Night April 29th

    Stock take - check, Accounting - check, VAT return - check, new yarns up online - check, instagram and blog post done - check! Another week filled with screen time for me, so much that the numbers started floating in front of my eyes and I was jumping spread sheet columns in my dreams. It might be intense while happening...

  5. Story Time - Hoddmime's Forest

    In Norse mythology Ragnarok is when the humans and gods collide in conflict and despair. It is the end of the world, in fire and battle, and almost all gods and humans die. The description of the end times does not sound great, there will be a winter lasting for several years, kinsfolk and friends will be slaying each other...

  6. What George Knits – Tuva's Arrows by Julie Knits in Paris

    So the gorgeous Norne Yarn arrived at Knit With Attitude and with that delivery came the most amazing and most deeply sumptuous green. Its no secret that I love green, almost everything I own is green! But when the custom dyed Knit With Attitude colour Hoddmime's Forest landed it was love at first sight. This colour inspired by Norse mythology...

  7. Virtual Knit Night April 22nd

    We are still working with reduced staffing in the shop to maintain social distancing, meaning that Thursdays are my 'work from home' days. I try to get most admin done of those days, so it means quite a few hours spent staring at the screen. Spred sheets, documents, plans, endless amounts of sentences and numbers. But on Thursday evenings my...

  8. Virtual Knit Night April 15th

    My shop is open! After a couple of very intense weeks of sorting, organising, tidying and re-stocking, and finally my shop no longer looks like a warehouse, gone are all the boxes and my shelves are once more bursting with colours. What a transformation, and what joy. This Monday we were finally able to open the doors and welcome our...

  9. Virtual Knit Night April 8th

    One of the 'weird' UK particulars I learned when moving to London is that the tax year starts April 6th. Yes, that's right, not January 1st but a few days into April. This also means that we have to do our stock take at this time, so the day before yesterday we counted all the things, absolutely everything! And then...

  10. Virtual Knit Night April 1st

    Oh wow what a week, just wow! We've been so busy, on our feet at all times, and there is so much work to do. But FUN work! It might not be visible on 'the outside', but we are preparing to open the shop again April 12th, and with the UK vaccines happening and the covid numbers going down, it...

  11. Virtual Knit Night March 25th

    YES! The sun is shining here in London Town today - spring is definitely in the air and I've got my knitting MOJO back! You know I've had to rely on George to keep the last few knit nights going, but now I'm resurfacing after a few days of much needed rest - and tonight my friends, tonight we are...

  12. Virtual Knit Night March 18th

    Today is a joyous day! This morning I became one of the 25 millions of the UK adult population that have received their first dose of the vaccine, and let me tell you the relief is real! It really feels like the beginning of the end of this very very long year. I don't feel any uncomfortable side effects like...
