So Monday was the first day of the Wool Week. I had signed up for MAKING KNITTING A CAREER, PART 1 - with JEN ARNALL-CULLIFORD and MAKING KNITTING A CAREER, PART 2 - with KATE DAVIES. We were a small, "exclusive" group of ladies. In my head, a tech editor was a very strict person, like an old school teacher, sometehing like McGonagall.. But Jen most definitely was not, she was the sweetest girl. And a good teacher (she has a very varied background). She made us work in groups, doing different exercises, and explained things very understandably. I would not be scared to have her as a tech editor. I met a nice Finnish designer there, who lives in Shetland, Outi Kater. She has some nice patterns.
After lunch we had the session with Kate Davies at Shetland Museum & Archives. She took us through the design process of her new hat, which at that point was nameless.
