Sample Shadows

With the commission completed, I’ve been back to working on samples. The Spring/Summer collection has really got a lace feel to it which I’m really enjoying. It’s stretching my lace knitting in new directions which is what it’s all about. Trying to fit the lace with the more solid edges makes for some interesting creations […]

More Shadows

I’ve been working on more studio samples and I thought I’d share. I’m currently working on samples for Spring/Summer 15 so I’ve working with lots of lace structure and light yarns. Each sample is also starting to inform the next one I knit. I’m having plenty of “Oo. I could try this next” moments. It […]
