Research project: In The Loop

Currently Active: 

Ongoing projects and events related to our work with the Knitting Collections held by the University of Southampton Library.

The Knitting Reference Library (KRL) includes the published works collected by Montse Stanley, Richard Rutt and Jane Waller. These comprise books, exhibition catalogues, knitting patterns, journals and magazines.

Since acquiring these collections we have continued to add new acquisitions related to knitting from work by contemporary artists to traditional stitchionaries. Our aim is to continue building the collection in the same spirit of enquiry as the collectors.

Exhibitions, conferences and study days have been organised to provide an opportunity to bring together and discuss disparate approaches to this single subject.

It is our aim to encourage and support all types of research and making from academics to designers, artists to knitters, students and experts, including all generations in contributing to worldwide knitting.
