Jo Gordon and I took a trip up to Annan to visit Stuart at Esk Cashmere.
Jo and I have been collaborating on a small knitwear project so we caught the train to Scotland with our designs for the first-stage samples.
A knitwear factory was new to me, usually I work with much smaller studios who can do one-offs or short runs in impossible time-frames, sometimes hand knitted, sometimes machine, but always small scale set-ups. I was keen to be shown around and to see what was possible on Stuart's machines.
I'm now impatient to see the results but this being fashion not costume, we have to wait a little while.
