Collaborations we love..... / DI Gilpin

  • Squirrelling away in September....

    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...

  • The Knitting Studio on TV!...

      Thrilled with the great short film about our company! A chance to see inside my design room and the knitting studio in Largo, Scotland.  Thanks to Business Gateway who commissioned the film and STV Creative for making it. It shows the slow (largo) way in which a design is made from the sampling, to note taking, chart drawing, knitting, finishing and then sending out! Thanks to Sheila Greenwell, our brilliant technical person and Stephanie Laird, our graduate, who joined us this year to interpret some of our hand knit designs into machine knit for the Largo diffusion range.
