Squirrelling away in September....

Posted by Di Gilpin on

I Love this time of year....making jam, wine and jellies and knitting really comes into its own! 

In the Loop was a tremendous event and it looks as if it will happen again in 2017 in Southhampton...I worried so much about my talk, got stuck on the motorway, left my notes in the studio....but everyone was so fab when I arrived all those anxieties fell away and once I started there was so much to say about the stitch that I ran overtime!!! Thanks to everyone in Glasgow for a brilliant time including the fashion show...great end to the day!Abstraction and subversion...all at the heart of what I love doing best!

Everyone loved the work we created for Tiphaine at Wolsey....and of course the.... Witch sweater for Meadham Kirchhoff.....Now working on some exciting new projects this autumn...stretching ourselves as usual and thinking out of the box....more on this later....

Pattern writing this month too ...so many have asked about my new design ...shown at In the Loop...many thanks to Kate Davies for showing it in her blog!Just working on a name for it right now...suggestions would be very welcome!!!! Hope to publish at the end of the month....

What a month it is going to be...our grand child Rian, aged 22 months, arrives today for 2 weeks....hurrying to finish our first children's design for him.....should be ready by teatime......and lots of birthdays to celebrate.....we are also out and about hosting a workshop at Kellie Castle and one at the fisheries museum in Anstruther to groups from the US....and our knit club folk have some great projects on the go.......Alice is making a Tashi jacket..pattern in Shorelines ...in the most amazing colours...and Yvonne is working on a cushion design based on my Delaunay pattern, in colours to match her home........exciting stuff...if you would like to join us we meet on thursday evening 5-7pm...all welcome!

Meanwhile, back to the knitting!

  • Reminds of summer ice lolleis! What’s the best stitch, needles and yarn for a blanket? I’ve tried to knit squares before with aran weight and they’re always too loose, I want something that’s going to be fairly substantial and actually last years without getting all out of shape.
