Stay Home Open Call!
Kalopsia Collective have an open call for “Stay Home and be creative”.
During these recent times, it is difficult to be inspired or creative, however I decided to take up the challenge of the open call.
Inspired by COVID-19 advice from the WHO “Stay Stafe, Stay Home” and the traditional saying, which originates in Roman times, “Home in where the heart is!”, these three fabrics have been inspired by these two sayings.
All three fabrics have repeating home and heart motifs, design by CraftedbyPanda for a 24 punchcard for a knitting machine.
Fabric 1 has home and heart motifs, with the home fully knitted and the heart an outline. In this design the home motif represents “Stay Home”.
Hand powered machine knitted fabric, using a vintage Brother KH881 standard gauge knitting machine. The fabric was knitted using Jamieson’s of Scotland Spindrift yarn, which is 100% pure Shetland wool; in Clover which has a deep regal purple hue with accents of Wild Violet delicate pink and blue tones.
