  1. What Maya Knits - Selja

    So, prior to writing this blog post I checked and it turns out that last time I wrote a 'What Maya Knits' post was nearly a year ago - and that gives you an indication of how much knitting time there is in my life - not much! But sometimes you just notice the one, the one project you just...
  2. Yarn Pairings for Pom Pom Quarterly Issue 25 – Summer 2018

    New magazine days are always fun here at the shop, and we are absolutely in love with the latest issue from Pom Pom Quarterly. Summer 2018 is Issue 25 for them and it does not disappoint. Spring can be a bit of a tricky season for knitwear but here there is loads of inspiration. One reason this issue is so...
  3. Yarn Pairings for Pom Pom Issue 20 Spring 2017

    We've had another knockout issue arrive from Pom Pom Quarterly! The Spring 2017 issue is number 20, and is jam packed with sweaters and accessories to bring you through to the warmer months. The cover shawl is a beautiful and wearable Arrosa by Jennifer Weissman. It uses 2 skeins of Hedgehog Fibres Twist Sock, which we have lots of in-stock at...
  4. 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...
  5. Yarn of the Week: Tokonatsu

    This week our highlight yarn is Tokonatsu by Noro. This DK weight yarn comes in a range of 8 muted jewel tones. It is a blend of cotton, silk and viscose, making it a wonderful yarn for summer and warmer weather garments. The yarn has a slubby blend, giving the finished fabric a slightly tweedy texture. This effect makes a...
  6. Yarn of the Week: Serena

    We would like to reintroduce an old favourite of ours, Yarn of the Week! We will highlight one yarn from the shop every week, with an offer and inspiration for projects. Our first yarn is Serena, from Manos del Uruguay. This yarn is a 4ply/fingering weight blend of alpaca and cotton. It makes for a lightweight yarn with plenty of...
  7. Yarn Pairings for Making No.1 Flora

    How beautiful is our latest arrival? It's of Making No.1 Flora, the first issue of a brand new magazine from Carrie Bostick Hoge of Madder Made. We could not be more excited here at the shop, and have been cooing and exclaiming over it all morning! This inaugural issue includes contributions from 21 different designers and makers across multiple craft...
  8. Yarn Pairings for Pom Pom Issue 17 Summer 2016

    There has been so much anticipation for this latest issue of Pom Pom here at Knit with attitude, especially after hosting the samples for Yarn Shop Day at the end of April. It's finally here! The garments fit perfectly with our Summer Top KAL, and even better, we've just received loads of new summer yarns here in the shop that are...

  11. Yarn Pairings for Amirisu Volume 10

    Amirsu have knocked it out of the park with another fantastic issue. Spring/Summer can be a traditionally difficult season for a knitting magazine, but there is no concern for that here! There are three beautiful tops, two sweaters and two shawls. Each of the pieces are wearable and practical, but with little details that really make them stand out. The...
