Knit and stitch 2010

I was pleasantly surprised to see these innovative and contemporary pieces of work by recent graduates at this years Knit and stitch show at Alexandra palace this week.

Full of lovely makers and hobby-ists, it is sometimes a worry how this area will grow and evolve in the future, so it was great to see new techniques, colours and aesthetics breaking through all that traditional style, ans made for a good balance between old and new. Also exciting was the work of Barley Massey in the 'swishing' area and the contemporary patchwork workshops of Katherine May! A good exhibition and worth fighting my way through the coach fulls of British hand makers and collectors, phew!!
