From two needles to one...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Wednesday, February 29, 2012
I have a confession...I have fallen a little bit in love with crochet...maybe I just need to get it out of my system?!

I visited one of my lovely friends beautiful flat (yes Emma you!!) and her Grandma had made her the nicest crochet throws for her sofa and chair - this inspired me - I wanted my own!! I have to admit i've always been agains crochet - 2 needles feels a lot more natural in my hands than one little hook, but one amazing lesson from my mum has turned me into a crochet machine - i'm 6 squares in and still loving it (and have to admit with the chunky yarn i'm using it growing a lot faster than knitting!!)..i'll keep you posted on how far I get - at the moment I have about 10 different ones I want to make - I think one pastel shaded one and one brighter one might be more realistic!!

I have also only conquered the standard square next yay!


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
