Welcome to the new Littletheorem Knits website!
It’s been a long time coming and a lot of hard work, but this is going to be our new home on the web. I’d like to say the biggest thank you to graphic designer/knitter extraordinaire Julia Gunther (@AsselKnits) for designing a beautiful new logo for our brand. I really think it reflects the spirit of Littletheorem – a simple geometric design with a bit of flourish! I really wanted something that reflected my Mathematical background, and I think it ties together geometry and lace knitting together really magnificently.
We have got quite a few designs in the pipeline that are coming along nicely – we’ve got a lace shawl pattern which I’ll hopefully release later this week, it only needs a few tiny tweaks. It’s an enormous lace shawl, one to really wrap up in. I’ve been a bit obsessed lately with designing lace patterns over an even number of stitches (I’ll need to write a blog post about this sometime soon!), and this has a leafy lace pattern with an even stitch count. Here’s a wee sneaky peek:
I’ve been a bit lace obsessed with lace lately, and have designed two “centre out” rectangular shawls. One is still on the needles, and has a large floral motif in the centre and the edges have a diamond pattern with lovely heart shaped double-nupps. The other shawl is for a book that Glasgow University are publishing of knitting patterns inspired by the university’s unique architecture. Mine is inspired by the beautiful houses on University Gardens, the centre has a repeating floral pattern and the main lace pattern is inspired by the tiers of windows in the buildings there, here’s another wee peek – not giving too much away at this stage!
I feel a bit like the last two years have been a bit of a wash out in terms of designing, keeping up on social media etc. I’ve knitted a lot of things that I have just never got round to writing a pattern for, taken so many photos for Instagram that I never post and had so many ideas for blogposts that never get written. Life has been incredibly busy, but maybe I am using that as an excuse. I think it’s definitely time for a clean sheet, turning over a new leaf and hopefully having a brand new website as a blank canvas will be a great fresh start!
