Yesterday, I got out to see Radical Lace and Subversive Knitting which I have been dying to go see. It was really amazing. Some of the pieces that stuck out in my mind were:
Althea Merback's medical wire knitted silk pieces like these gloves.The details on these miniature garments were so amazing.
Yoshiki Hishinuma's seamless machine knitted Casablanca is so lovely.
Hildur Bjarnadottir's crocheted/tatted cotton yarn pieces so delicate and Erna Van Sambeek's cut out pieces from floral fabric attached by textile glue and combined into one lacey fabric.
There is also a lot of wild and unusual pieces using non-traditional methods that are really interesting to look at.
This show does not disappoint and I am thrilled that I was able to go see it.
Also, last night Grammie stayed much later than usual so Mick and I could go out to dinner alone and use a gift card that my brother Christopher gave us for Christmas.
