It’s back to work for me today after a week of dubied machine knitting at Nottingham Trent University.
There were over 60 machines in the room we were based in, and there were several full scale industrial machines next door.
There was lots of colour to choose from – these cones are all in the yarn store.
The week was about creating texture rather than garments, so we had the fun of creating many samples and trying things to see how they would work.
We knitted with elastic and monofilament – both give very different effects.
I’m looking forward to getting back to my knitting machine which seems very small now!
