As part of the ‘Knitting in the Round’ network we will be appointing a Knitter-in-Residence at the University of Glasgow. Our ideas for this post are very open and we will be advertising in the New Year. We were inspired by the recent ‘Poet-in-residence’ scheme at the Logan Botanic Gardens but since hearing about that we have discovered knitters-in-residence are a fairly common sight. We of course know about Deirdre Nelson’s wonderful work around Scotland and further afield where she has used residencies to work with communities to produce a body of contemporary visual art often based on knit. See her work at http://dstitch.blogspot.co.uk/
