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.

Counting Stitch Markers

There’s something about these sets that are so satisfying to create and use! Use them to mark pattern sections and rows, count pattern repeats and track your progress day to day.

Counting Stitch Marker Sets

Make your mark with our counting stitch markers

Each set of 10 stitch markers can be customised with our free Make Your Mark service at the point of sale. Choose from needles sizes 4mm and 7mm, removable markers or clasps.

 

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.

 

Hexagonal Minimalist Stitch Markers Knitting

Hexagonal Stitch Markers

Our new hexagonal snag free stitch markers are available in three colourways, gold plated, silver plated and rose gold plated. They are designed to fit knitting needles up to 7mm and do a perfect job of reminding you to check the pattern. Their stylish minimalist look is fresh and modern and look great on the needles. Sold in packs of 10 per colour, or a mixed colour pack of 15.

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.

January club is available to Pre-Order now….
