Daniel Bowskill
Hi! I’m Dan, the current welfare officer for KnitSoc. I’m really lucky to have worked with an amazing committee to get through this year, and we really learned a lot. While some things didn’t work out as well as planned, other events worked better than they ever could have in person. For that reason, I think it’s really important to continue some of these online events, for example, hosting speakers from other parts of the world, and collaborating with other universities from across the UK. If elected, I’ll also work to ensure a smooth transition back into in-person events whenever it is safe to do so.

Of course, I’m excited to carry on the hard work of my predecessors in teaching, but I’d like to invite other members experienced in knitting and crochet to teach different techniques and styles such as Tunisian crochet as well. I’d also love to try out a more project-based way of teaching knitting and crochet, hoping to attract beginners with a definite goal to work towards. I’m also interested in trying to attract more men to KnitSoc – I think it’s an untapped audience!

Most importantly, I want to work to maintain our friendly and welcoming KnitSoc community, and give back to the people who made such an impact on me when I first joined.
