Winner of Best Picture September 2020
The winner of Septembers's picture competition is this colourfully vibrant piece by Nishita. We love it!
So we got in touch with Nishita (aka knotted_by_nish) to learn more about her. And here's her story:
I first picked up some knitting needles 2 years ago when a friend was pregnant. I really wanted to make her something rather than buy something that someone else would probably buy her anyway. I bought a beginner's knitting kit and made a little blanket, I found knitting very therapeutic.
Despite loving it, I didn't knit again until last year when I was pregnant with my second daughter. I bought another knitting kit and made another blanket. During lockdown, I found I had so much time and was producing lots of items by learning techniques via other makers or online. I strongly believe in the makers movement and I'm excited to keep learning new fibre related crafts.
