Recently a girl from my high school (that parts just a strange coincidence – but maybe they’re good at making creative knitters, Gudrun went there too!) spent a week doing work experience in the shop. Sarah got her started knitting one of my stockings.On her last day I helped her finish the heel and although she was uncertain about the colourwork she took it home to finish. Uncertain, huh? I think she figured it out pretty well! We were delighted when she brought it back for us to hang it in the window. I love seeing creative takes on my patterns. What have you done, or thought of doing with the stocking pattern?
I’m playing catch up today, I’ll be back later with last week’s adventures in London.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
