Wool Wool Wool...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Sunday, October 17, 2010
I GOT MY WOOL (thank you Paul!)... All 17kg of it!! And had a very interesting bus ride back down to London carrying it!! But now i'm back and it full steam ahead knitting - i've spent the last two days knitting for 8 hours a day - and have currently got one front and half a back of my second collection piece - I think tonight shall be a late one so I can block them both at uni tomorrow, and then make a start on the sleeves! I can't believe how fast time is going...December is going to come around very very fast, and my knitting doesn't seem to be progressing very quickly!

Back to knitting...Oo look what I saw in Hobb's window for Wool Week...


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.
