Simon Pollitt talked to Embleton WI members and guests about knitting at their recent meeting.


Embleton


He trained as a dancer and took up knitting to pass


the time spent


waiting in the wings when he wasn’t on stage. Simon’s teacher was Swiss, so he uses the ‘continental’ left- handed style of knitting. In the UK, the predominant style is right-handed but styles of knitting vary from country to country. Inspired by Kaffe Fassett, the American designer, he developed a fascination with yarn textures and unusual wools, stitches and designs. He joined the Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers where he learnt techniques for spinning, carding and making wool into yarn. He likes to support local farmers and showed us a jumper he was making with Herdwick wool. Simon presented WI member Esme Studholme with a coat he had made for her dog Lupin and Esme thanked him on behalf of everyone for such an enjoyable talk and on behalf of Lupin, for such a beautiful coat.


The competition for a knitted item was won by Andrea Cameron, Chrissie Veitch was second and the raffle was won by one of our guests, Alison Truman.


Meetings are held at 7.30pm at the village hall on the second Wednesday of each month. We are always pleased to welcome guests and new members so please get in touch with our secretary Joanna South 01900 828110 for more information.
