Knitting has enjoyed a massive revival in the last few years, and boy, haven't we heard about it. But while the papers and glossies have been falling over themselves to report on the rise of yarn sales in John Lewis and how many twentysomethings have been seen knitting in pubs, contemporary textile designers have been busy doing some rather more brilliant things with their needles. New book In The Loop: Knitting Now by Jessica Hemmings charts their work, and Perri Lewis guides you through it.

  1. Let's go knit in Fuzzy's, do you think that qualifies as a pub?
