Welcome to the website for In the Loop, the Knitting Reference Library and Knitting Collections


Welcome to the website for everything relating to our work with the Knitting Collections held by the University of Southampton Library.


Our activities and the information on the website cover: the Knitting Reference Library located at the Winchester Campus, the Knitting Collections held by Special Collections at the Hartley Library on the Highfield Campus, Southampton, and all aspects of In the loop, the series of international, interdisciplinary conferences held bi-annually since 2008.


We welcome all those interested in the many aspects of knitting - artists and designers, academic researchers and practical knitters, students and members of the public.
