I’ll be giving a few workshops on the technique “Modular Knitting” in May and June. In May it will be on the island of Samsø, at the “Samsø Strik og Quilt-festival”. Follow the link to read more about that fest!
In June in Silkeborg there will be a brand new knitting-event: “Grib Garnet”. 4 fabulous days of knitting events, exibitions, and lots and lots of exiting workshops! I have been asked to give two Module Knitting workshops there, and I’m looking very much forward to it!
Modular knitting is so much fun. A little bit addicting too. It’s almost like playing with building blocks: one small piece at the time, then just add on, with unlimited possibilities regarding colour, shape and texture.
The picture shows the beginning of a modular jacket that I’m working on. Or should I say: a project that is resting for the moment.. Inspiration to this particular shape of module came from a wonderfull Kaffe Fasset-quilt called St. Marks:
Beautiful, isn’t it? It was a fun challenge to figure out how to knit the trapezoid shapes, and how to arrange the colours.
Well. I think it’s time to dig out this jacket-project and get back to working on it.
