Eleanor, A Fat White Woman.

Well hello there! It is I! Who owns the shop, used to talk to you a lot and then disappeared because Casper is capable. I am back! I am on ADHD drugs! First day! Feeling competent! Let's see how long it lasts! I've had this concept floating around in my head for some time - more as a gnawing thought than anything productive, but today, probably as a result of the drugs it occurred to me to write a bloody blog! Firstly, I need you to know, if you're one of the people I'm talking about here, I know that you...

Things are Happening?!

Oh yes, you may think we've only been concentrating on Festiveposting but there are some truly exciting things in the works here at Knit Nottingham. First off... what do you think these photos mean? Maybe something is... coming? In the near future? Maybe you should keep an eye out for something perfect for autumn...?    Maybe. Who knows? Not us. Definitely not.  Anyway, at the same time as something happening, we're also planning the shop birthday party! Saturday the 3rd of September is when we shall be celebrating the shop's twelfth birthday, and it's gonna be a big one! Come...

Christmas in August

Hello hello hello. Its August now. I don't know how, but eight months of 2022 have already passed. And, if you think about it, Christmas is just around the corner if time is passing this quickly lately. So, Eleanor thought we'd focus a little bit on Christmas this month, because otherwise we'll all be rushing with a month to knit up everything, and we don't want that do we! Every day the shop is open in August, we'll post a little tidbit about some Christmassy fibrecrafting on Facebook and Instagram, whether it's a great pattern we know will be perfect...

Knit Nottingham on Nottingham (Part 2!)

So, after a rather long blog post the other day about the city of Nottingham and what Eleanor and I love about it, I would now like to welcome you to the blog post about Nottinghamshire! It's a big county with a lot on, and no matter which direction you head in, you're bound to end up somewhere beautiful. Close to the city is the town of Beeston, which is so close it kind of ends up being merged into Nottingham anyway, but Eleanor and I love Beeston because there is just everything you need in one place. The charity...

Knit Nottingham on Nottingham (Part 1!)

We talk a lot about yarn, knitting, crocheting and making on these blogs, so that's the first half of our name sorted. But, we never really talk about Nottingham itself. I'm not sure why, but now is as good a time as ever to do so. I asked Eleanor what her favourite things about Nottingham were and she listed about 30 bajillion things, so we're going to have to split this into two. Today we're going to talk about our favourite places in Nottingham proper, and later in the week we'll focus on the county. Sound good? Lets go! Eleanor and...
