Award for Distitch book!

A year ago exactly, on 15th October 2019, I published Distitch – a new knitting concept. For its first year celebration I had a wonderful gift.

Recently The Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators (ISTC) announced the winners of its UK Technical Communication Awards. The purpose of the UK Technical Communication Awards is to recognise the value of clear, concise and effective information products. It is a pity that James Bartley, the technical editor of the book and I couldn’t participate in the award ceremony and gala dinner in London because of Covid restrictions.

The winners were announced on Tuesday 29th September at TCUK Metro, a virtual conference hosted by the ISTC. Six companies, with contributors from several countries, were recognised for the quality of their entries, five receiving Merit Awards and one received the trophy as Overall Winner.

Here are the judges’ remarks on the Merit award to Distitch:

“Distitch is a very attractive and engaging entry with clear instructions and excellent clear graphics.  The professional appearance of the samples with real word images using the same colour thread as the hand-drawn images impressed the judges especially. The structure is appropriate for the subject matter and consistently applied; a very accomplished piece.”
