Wow! What a response we have had to our sweet little beaded row counters in the last few weeks. The row counters can be used in several ways, not least to count up to 99 rows using the clasp marker supplied to count the units, in the same way as an abacus.

The row counter can also be used to track pattern repeats and they can be customised directly from us for particular pattern repeats. I use mine all the time for tracking cable repeats!

With plenty in stock the row counters are available in two sizes, to fit needles up to 4mm (these will also fit 5mm needles) and slightly larger to fit needles up to 7mm, and we have a good choice of colours!

Love Hearts Stitch Marker Club Reveal

This is one of my favourite club sets so far!

There are still a few sets available and we will continue to donate to British Heart Foundation whilst stocks last.

It’s been 13 years…

…since we sold our first set of stitch markers! Wow, that’s gone so quick!

Atomic Knitting is 13 years old

Atomic Knitting celebrates 13 years of stitch markers!

Back in 2006 we had started making few sets of stitch markers to aid knitting projects and decided to sell a few sets on eBay to test the market. At the time there were only a few plastic sets around in shops and none of the accessories that we carry today.

Later in the year we did a local craft fair (our first and last!) as we also had an online bead shop. After making a tough call to choose which business to take forward, the niche of stitch markers won! It was risky at the time but it was well worth the adventure!

The hobby became a micro business within a few months,¬†and we had and still have many regular customers and wholesale orders. ¬†A year or two later and we started exhibiting at multiple knitting and fibre shows every year. We’ve met lots of our lovely customers and it’s thanks to our customers that we are thriving after all these years.

The Butterfly and Swarovski Stitch Marker Set was one of the first set of stitch markers sold, and as a ‘Happy 13th Birthday to Atomic Knitting‘, we’re bringing them back for a limited time. Back in 2006, each set sold for ¬£5 and we are going to stick at that price. Available now in limited numbers, these pretty stitch markers will be presented ribbon tied on card and they make a pretty gift or treat for yourself.

Beaded Point Protectors

This time of year is usually a little quiet when it comes to sales and because of that, we have a bit of time to design and create new products. Today we are showcasing our beaded point protectors in three new designs.

A beaded point protector can be used to protect the needle tips and keep the needles together whilst the knitting is on the needles. Its big feature is that the caps are joined together allowing the needles to remain a pair. Not only does it prevent the annoyance of losing the spare needle down the side of the sofa, but the point protectors also work to ensure the stitches stay on the needle.

 

 

 

Minimalist Stitch Markers

…they don’t need to be just functional, they can be beautiful too.
