Juliet Bernard of The Knitter gets inspired by Belinda of R&B Design and falls in love with some very stylish gloves...
I caught up with the lovely and ebullient Belinda from R&B Design at Woolfest 2012 (gosh, was that really two months ago?!). I am a huge fan of their elegant designs in ecru and white yarn (apparently Belinda only wears black or white). You really can’t go wrong with their patterns.
As you can see I am knitting Luxy Gloves in their Silky yarn (80% superfine alpaca and 20% silk). I haven’t yet decided if I am going to put the ruffle on – I’m not sure if I am a ruffles kind of girl. The way this summer has been going I think I may well need these gloves sooner rather than later.
Belinda and her co-hort Ruth are so much more than just another knitting brand. When you meet them you realise there is a huge amount of thought and consideration in their approach to knitting, their yarns and designs. The energy they put into the events they organise is amazing and inspiring so do keep an eye on their website.
