Opening day is getting closer

Anne Sinclair from Fair Isle has been working in the Bod this weekend, hanging part of the 2016 exhibition. I was lucky enough to act as her 'go-fer.' Surrounded by such colourful old knitwear was amazing.She told me lots of stories about the traditons and techniques ,which of course she has been steeped in all her life. My favourite,(very tiny perfect stitches) was a mid 19th century silk piece, part of a purse, in dark blue with borders of madder and cream patterns. And the edging is lace!
