Macro Friday

Earlier this week I attended a day conference showcasing the work and achievements of a collaborative digitisation project within the arts eduction sector.   It was a fantastic day, all about discovering the wealth of archives and collections that different universities have been involved in digitising and the value and impact they have on learning and research as well as social engagement. 

One of the themes through the day was textiles and knitting, so it was a wonderful surprise to find that our conference pack contain a ball of wool, a pair of needles and a set of knitting instructions provided by the textile designer Deryn Relph, who was exhibiting her work on the day.

I was taught by my nan and my mum how to knit when I was a child, but I haven’t knitted for years.    I remember knitting jumpers for a charity to help those suffering in Africa or toys that I thought I would sell, but never did as I didn’t think they were good enough.

So following the simple instructions that accompanied the wool and needles I am attempting to give this craft another go.
