Knit with Attitude Book – A 10-year Celebratory Collection
2020 has been an odd year for many of us, but for me a definite highlight has been getting to know Maya, owner of Knit with Attitude, in London better. As you will read from her own words below she celebrates her 10 year anniversary of opening her shop this year.
“Knit with attitude is 10 in 2020, and it has been well more than a year since our team started working on Knit with attitude’s 10 year anniversary book. It was so inspiring collaborating with so many talented designers on our collection, and I can’t even begin to describe the feeling when the samples came through our door so we could see them in real life. The comforting support of our tech editor scrutinising every word and number in the pattern drafts, the excitement meeting with the printers, the enthusiasm we had planning the photo shoot, all the joy of working with people we love for such a celebratory project, which we of course would finalise with a grand party – dancing, Prosecco, fireworks and bunting, laughter, knitting and fun! A book project with, by and for our community! When announcing the upcoming book last autumn, everything seemed to come together beautifully, what a year of celebration we had planned and prepared for! But if there is one thing I have learned as an independent yarn shop owner it is that everything is unpredictable and nothing is certain in our wonderful woolly world.”
