Knitted together: a new pattern for the future , Southampton, GB University of Southampton 9pp.
(Look-Here! Project Case Studies).
The contemporary interest in knitting and more broadly in all types of making has gained noticeable coverage in the media and has also been shaped by the Internet and social networking. Knitting as an activity has undergone a renewal that continues in a number of contexts. This renewal is found in the new knitting clubs located in public places such as libraries, in the work of contemporary artists who use craft as part of their practice, and in the numerous Internet based resources, one of the first being “Cast-off” which attracted media attention with live knitting on the Circle Line tube.
