There was a selection of six exclusive Removable Counting Stitch Markers in this set and will include:

  • Two of each of the following numbered removable markers:
  • 25, 50, 100 (prefer another ring size? No problem, pop a note on your order and we’ll customise your order for free – choose from 4mm, 7mm or crochet clip)
    • Free shipping 

This release was limited to 25 sets.

 

REVEAL……

 

july-club-reveal

This club really was a joy to put together and the watermelon theme and colours were a late addition but worked so well. An additional beaded watermelon stitch marker was also included as an extra treat.

These cast on counting markers are so useful in order to keep track of counting not only the cast on of a large project but the continued tracking of stitches on each row knitted. Using our cast on counting markers, it’s easy to track each row for missing or additional stitches, especially when they are sectioned off with the markers.

In addition to this club, we also created other instructional markers designs here.shop-now-button

No show, this year!

Normally at this point on the Friday before Wonderwool Wales, I’m frantically checking I have everything packed into the car! Sadly this year, Atomic Knitting is not exhibiting at Wonderwool and after a lot of thought we chose to have a fallow year (a bit like the Glastonbury Festival)! It’s our first year off in over 10 years and I’ll miss seeing you all.

We were lucky enough to supply an item for this year’s goody bag for the Flock Gathering, so I feel like we are there in spirit at least. It’s a rather strange feeling, missing out on one of my favourite shows though.

As we like to be part of it all, there’s 15% off all orders placed on the website until midnight 1st May and free shipping on UK orders over £10!

Have a fantastic show if you’re going, and we’ll see you at the next one.

Atomic Knitting’s Mystery Stitch Markers & Notions Club

Launching today! Our new monthly mystery stitch marker & notions club! Yay!

It’s really easy to join in the fun, there’s no tie-in, no upfront monthly fees and it’s open to all. Each month, we’ll notify you by email when the club is available with a secret link and you can decide if you would like to purchase our exclusive limited edition club notions.

We like to keep things simple, so here’s how it works:

jan-stitch-marker-club

1. Sign up for our Monthly Mystery Stitch Marker & Notion Club email here to be the first to hear about each monthly launch.

sign-up

We recommend adding our email address to your address book to ensure the email doesn’t end up in the spam folder! You’ll get a notification email when the club opens. 

2. We’ll send a notification email with a secret link each month. The mystery sets will be limited editions with only 15 sets per month available to purchase. From exclusive stitch markers to pattern tamers, themed mini crochet hooks to Portuguese pins plus lots of other accessories, we plan on bringing exclusive designs into the club. Each month will have something different, making it easy to pick and choose to suit your needs. If you decide not to purchase in a particular month, that’s absolutely fine and you’ll continue to receive the monthly club emails. There’s no obligation to purchase.

If you are thinking of buying a club release, we recommend purchasing when the pre-order email comes out (via the secret link), usually three days before the club is openly available to all on the website. The club will ship on the date specified in the description for that month. Once the club is sold out, then it will close.

3. The exact products each month will remain a mystery until they arrive with you! We will describe the type, quantity and sizing of the mystery product eg 1 x 4mm stitch marker but all other details will be a secret, as we don’t want to spoil the surprise. There should be enough information to decide if you would like to buy.

4. For UK customers, there are no shipping costs to pay for the monthly mystery clubs, as we’re making it easy to pre-order and we won’t delay any other order that you may place at the same time (unless you specifically ask us to!). Non UK customers – At this time club orders ship with the shipping costs as specified here.

5. Want to join in? Go on! There’s going to be some very special notions available that you simply won’t get anywhere else.

This week the studio has been a buzz with the new stock lines, and don’t they look fun! The latest designs of magnetic Portuguese Pins are now available and are expected to sell quickly. We couldn’t pick our favourite design, and this little selection look so pretty.


The DPN holder designs were a lot of fun to make, and there really are endless designs and as hard as it was, we’ve chosen the best ones to showcase.

 


New Magnetic Pattern Tamer designs include:

 

A huge choice! Which one is your favourite?


 

Finally there’s a couple of new stitch marker designs that we adore, and can be made up to a custom fit with our Make Your Mark service.

Atomic Knitting at Wonderwool Wales

Wonderwool Wales 2017

Come and visit Atomic Knitting at Wonderwool Wales on 22nd/23rd April 2017!

Wonderwool Wales show is just 11 days away and I am so excited to be at this show again for the 9th year running.  The past couple of weeks have been a blur of creating lots of our individual products from stitch markers to Portuguese pins and everything in-between.

Atomic Knitting was also invited again this year to create the special gift for the FLOCK gathering at Wonderwool on Saturday evening. All will be revealed on the blog after the show! I hope to be posting updates about the show over the weekend on all Atomic Knitting social media channels, so do follow us.

If you are able to come to the show, I’d love to say hi at the Atomic Knitting stand (L1 in the main hall). It makes for a great day/weekend out in a lovely part of the world.

Next week the studio will be carefully packed up and transported to the Royal Welsh showground where the stand will be set up to showcase over 1500 products. As always, there will be some special stitch marker designs and other knitting/crochet goodies launching at the show. If there’s any left 🙂 these will then be available on the website in the week after the show.

If you can’t get to the show then the website will be open for ordering, although running a limited range of stock from Wednesday 19th April until the following Wednesday 26th April. Please note that all orders placed after Midnight on Tuesday 18th will be posted on Tuesday 25th April. Our wholesale shop will re open in May.

Here’s a quick rundown of our product range:

with best wishes

Instructional Knitting Stitch Markers

BC_Cornerstone_Carosel_1400_400_instr1Our ever popular instructional stitch markers are back with a new colour way. The majority of our markers are available to fit 4mm, 7mm, 6mm including crochet clasp and with a crochet clasp. For right/side wrong side markers or garment marking, these are generally available with crochet clips to clip onto the knitted work to denote the side or neck, arm etc.

Why use them?

Instructional stitch markers are invaluable to assist with complex patterns as the instruction is printed on the marker itself. For intermediate knitters this can provide a little extra confidence on more complex patterns and for advanced knitters our Instructional knitting stitch markers can also be used for freehand knitting where no pattern is followed per se, although perhaps the rhythm of increases/decreases or lace work is necessary for a symmetric or asymmetric design.

What designs are available

Over the years we have added to our designs and have a great complement of instructionals. We welcome commission orders.

Choose from sets including:

  • ssk, k2tog, psso, m1, yo, ssp,
  • inc, dec,
  • back, front

and of course our right side/wrong side, start and left/right (for sock knitting) are our most popular designs.

Counting markers are also highly sought after, as they can aid with counting large numbers of stitches, especially when casting on. Additional markers can be purchased to count larger numbers of stitches, and when used on the needles, this technique can ensure that any dropped or added stitches can be readily identified once the knitting has been sectioned.

Our latest designs are a great addition to our collection and we hope to have further designs released in the summer.
