Wow take a look at the UKHKA Knitted Textiles Awards 2011 where there is some amazing talent on show.  The winner was Katie Jones with some very impressive crochet.  Looking through I had a few favourites; Genevieve Sweeney who came second and Felicity Thomas who won the Erika Knight Award. 

Hannah Taylor who also came second with her fabulous wacky fashion designs.

All the winners and finalists have wonderful design collections.  Please do look at Claire Nixon from the University of Huddersield who did a years work placement here at Thomas Ramsden.
