Vanessa – enjoys knitting small, kitsch and pointless things

Now I want to knit with dusters, as part of the Domestic dusters project that I’ve been running since 2014.  I chose a duster because it hasn’t been adorned like aprons or tea towels. I initially created a set of dusters with fairy tales on, then opened it up to see if other people wanted to contribute to the project.  It sort of hasn’t stopped since then.

Liane – master of transformational construction

Making my own patterns and working with unusual fibres is what excites me. I like textural design: being able to make a texture on the fabric as you’re knitting it, using things like tuck and slip; or it might be about hand manipulation or short row shaping to change the shape of the fabric.
