Hope that you liked the photos in the previous post, and Hello to new readers coming from Hoxton Handmade!
I just wanted to post a few more photos from the show that I love, and chat a bit more about some of the garments. But first, everyone is really really recommended to check out www.hoxtonhandmade.com - this fantastic knitting podcast is narrated by the lovely Katie, who very kindly came to our show at MODO this weekend. In this weeks podcast she chats to myself, my gorgeous model/show producer Tori and some of the shows' other knitwear designers, Giulia & Rhiannon, as well as Socktopus aka Alice Yu, Knit Nation organiser and overall lovely person :) She also discusses some Do's & Don't of crochet, a review of the new Interweave Knits, some up to the minute Knit Nation news & a look at knitting with Habu (I love Habu)'s stainless steel yarn.
So, onto the photos!
www.knitting4fun.co.uk. I felted the panels using a normal washing machine cycle, steamed flat and cut to shape, after which my lovely other half sewed them all together with some lining fabric to match the knitted shorts and socks. Using the remaining felt I cut leaf shapes and superglued them onto kirby grips to make hairpieces. Tori, left, our Volunteering & Photography coordinator (and overall great person) closed my collection. (Photo by Sophie Constantinou, former MODO President)
Next time, more details of press coverage, and photos from the collections of other MODO designers!
