I’m just about finished a piece for Memory and Commemoration the WAFTA members exhibition. I’m up to the last few hours of hemming that need concentration and precision. The other night wasn’t the night for that…just needed something mindless in front of the telly.
This bag of “super absorbent cloth” (commonly used for disposable nappy liners) has been hanging around the studio for months. I collected it from REmida last year at a workshop. I have used it for the Gilded Cage and hardly made a dent in the bag. It dyes really well and is super strong. Our puppy thinks it is great for tug-o-war.
Flipping through a magazine I saw a chunky knit bed throw…Theresa Dair (Have a look at the gorgeous knitting yarns and patterns she sells) demonstrated “Arm Knitting” as part of her presentation at a WAFTA meeting a couple of years ago. So I though I would give it a go.
Challenges – Yes! You can’t really do anything else until you have finished knitting.
