Recollection by by Renée Callahan


Recollection is a collection of 4 accessories and 2 garments designed specifically to highlight oddments of special skeins, material memories of projects, friendships, holidays and occasions.

These materials, with which we spend so much time when we knit, become impregnated with the memory of that project: the places we knit it, the person the finished object went to, the way we felt when we made it. Those things, feelings and memories are precious. This collection is designed to honour those memories, bringing them together in a conscious way to make a new knit incorporating those precious remnants.

Renée has named each of the designs after one of her ancestors, from the Grandmother who helped raise her to the great aunts she never met. Like the projects from Recollection, she writes “I am made of the material and emotional memories of these women.”

Each copy of the collection comes with a code for downloading the digital patterns.
