    August is one of those in between months. There's still some hot days, and the kids are still on holiday, but the nights can be cool, and there are adverts on the telly for back to school supplies.

  3. What Natalie Knits: Homeward Bound Shawl

    So way back in September I had to head back to Canada again to apply for a new visa to stay in the UK. This was a relatively straight forward process, but had to be done from Canada and required an uncertain amount of time away from my new home in England and my partner. Before I left Maya suggested...
  4. 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...
  5. What Natalie Knits - Maude Sweater

    I have recently been casting a critical eye over my wardrobe, especially my handmade wardrobe and have been thinking a lot on how it can be improved. I have a good stash of hand knit sweaters, and they do the job of keeping me warm, so I can't complain too much in that department. However, I have slowly lost some weight...

  11. Help Us Keep Hackney Warm!

    Dirty sleeping bags curled up on cardboard mats under railway bridges and in shop doorways, fear of abuse and always the cold: rough sleeping is a tough and unkind existence affecting increasing numbers of homeless people in Hackney. It’s a problem that we think has a special resonance with us as knitters. We are after all in the business of...
