Our partners KTS in the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal sent us a crazy pair of 2 metre tall mittens! A work of art as they were made completely of patches – each patch made by one of their hand knitter members. In a spirit of competition each woman was asked to be their most creative, show new knitting skills and go for it!
So there I was – with my design team judging each and every patch of the giant mittens. We picked four winners! Congratulations to KTS winners
- 1st prize: Luxmi Deiy Dangel
- 2nd prize : Ms. Gyani Shova Shakya
- 3rd prize : Ms. Shreejana Shakya
- Special Masako prize : Ms. Sita Singh
These brilliant designs are significant because People Tree then build them into future designs and products for future collections.
I love hand knitting and my favourite product by KTS knitters in this current collection are:
- Crochet Scarf
- Jewel Embroidered Cardigan
