Wool House

Wool House at Somerset House is on until 24th March, the exhibition claims to be the largest showcase of wool in the world. Designers such as Donna Wilson and Ashley Hicks have been tasked with furnishing a suite of rooms with a huge rang of woollen creations. I will be making a visit on Monday to get inspired… maybe some knitting ideas for objects around the home will be the result! Admission is free.

Dream Sweater

I am a bit obsessed with this image that I found over on the Patternity blog. I was dreaming that it might belong to an old knitting book or magazine that I could track down through a bit of research but alas all I came up with was a photo of Paulina Porizkova on an Erotica forum (?!). I just love the “ballet” styling, the over-sized cable jumper, thrown on and the soft tones – I probably wouldn’t have thought to knit a sweater in blush pink but I might now. One day I will design my own version of this, it looks supersoft…
