Just before Christmas, Di Gilpin, knitwear designer and consultant to the project received a commission from fashion house Meadham Kirchhoff for a range of hand knitted garments with gansey designs.  These included a dress, skirt, jumpers, socks, stockings and tights.  Knitters from around the Moray Firth were among those who worked to complete the garments in time for the catwalk show on 22nd February.  

Dave Thompson, MSP, submitted a motion congratulating the knitters from the Project.
