|Brief Description/Editor(s):||Jessica Hemmings|
|Publisher:||Black Dog Publishing, London|
The book describes the practice of contemporary knitters many of who presented papers at the 2008 ‘In the loop’ conference hosted by Winchester school of Art. As such it serves as a post-conference publication. It is an up-to date snapshot of current art, craft, design and academic practice centred on the medium of knitting. The chapter describes elements of recent practice, which focus on ‘situationist’ and narrative responses to mass-produced seamless knitted garments.
