Knitting in Art, Part III (also, I’m not dead)
Darling blog readers, I am Not Dead. I am just buried under tasks: getting house ready for final settlement, getting visa, getting yarn mailed all over the world. It’s a great big adventure over here in Lawton/Trask land. But, as someone said to Mr. Trask yesterday, “Things like this are rarely graceful – but, luckily, they don’t have to be.”
I’ll be back tomorrow or, at the very latest, Thursday with one final giveaway and a post on color, but for now here are some fabulous knitting artists:
- Ben Cuevas’ Knitted Skeletons – ever so Halloween.
- Ilisha Helfman, who has written a book on an improvisational approach to knitting she calls Jazz Knitting;
- Glorious and famous portrait of Virginia Woolf knitting;
- Various portraits of Horatio Herbert Kitchener, 1st Earl Kitchener of Khartoum, who knit socks for his soldiers and invented the ever-so-useful Kitchener Stitch.
Those of you who are willing and able to pay for book shipping, do take a look at what’s below, and comment if you’d like one of these fine books (find information on book giveaways here).
So – where have you seen knitting in art, lately?
