"Serendipitously, my recent work links with the history of the spaces that I inhabit most in my daily life - two former cotton spinning mills. Here, knitting yarns were made by twisting two or more strands together in what is known in textiles as 'the doubling process'. To celebrate this, the symbols used within this letterform make reference to the material and this process as well as the diagrams I draw to plan woven wool sculptures."
