    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. Having just moved with my family from Norway to London, coming from a background as a sub-culture film maker, I can honestly...

    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. This pattern is ornamental and sumptuous and is a great way of honouring this equally as sumptuous yarn. Designed by Natalie Selles this snood is a great one skein project. Natalie says of the design: 'There’s nothing...

  6. Exploring Plystre Needle Cases

    These new in store needle cases from Plystre were tempting knitters on the Great London Yarn Crawl when we first got them in. So much so they snapped nearly all of them up. Blink and you will miss them! Well lucky for you, you won't need to wait much longer to get your hands on them. We have listed the next batch...

    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. The aptly named Spitalfields Shawl takes its name from Maya's beginnings with Knit With Attitude. Maya started her shop as a stall at the Spitalfield's Market with two boxes of yarn. The Spitalfield's Shawl was launched at...

  10. Knit a Neutral

    I thoroughly enjoyed doing the Knit a Rainbow series, it was a great way to explore the shop and focus into a single colour. But how can I forget neutrals! The fleeces of animals that we spin to make yarn are infinitely varied when it comes to colour. Undyed and neutral shades offer us an experience to create something as...
  11. Woollen or Worsted?

    Woollen or worsted? You may or may not have come across these terms before, they sound like so many others in the knitting world. Woollen does not necessarily mean something that is wooly and worsted is not just a yarn weight found commonly in America. What I'm talking about here is the way the yarn is spun. Woollen and worsted...
