The Curiosity Cabinet of Knitting Stitches. The Cabinets are now on display at Walford Mill Crafts until 30 March 2014.
The Curiosity Cabinet of Knitting Stitches tries to give a voice to some of the more esoteric knitting stitches, by presenting a collection of knitted swatches as a natural history collection of yore. Similar to a curiosity cabinet, the collection of swatches will be presented in categories and enable the viewer to examine them up close, thus providing a sense of wonder and enlightenment. The exhibition will be accompagnied by a series of short workshops, encouraging knitters to try some of these techniques themselves.
On Thursday, 3 April 2014, I will present a paper at Knitting 1914-2014, organised by the Knitting Reference Library: “From piece work to a modern classic: the development of Sanquhar knitting.”
