Pushing Boundaries

Pushing boundaries is a good thing.  Not only does it inspire creativity, but it keeps us on our toes and encourages us to think.  All aspects of life, including knitting, has its boundary pushers.  Here are several who have inspired nona recently:

  1. Germaine Koh has been working on "Knitwork" since 1992 and plans to make it a life-long endeavor.  For this piece Germaine unravels used garments and reknits them into a single continuously growing knit fabric.  The Spring 2005 issue of Interweave Knits has a nice article about Knitwork.   
  2. RedSilvia is a Girl on Wire.  She has been knitting and crocheting wire to make jewelry - very cool.  Please keep nona away from the wire and beads, too tempting.

  3. I was admiring Amelia's sockapalooza socks when I stumbled on a link to Knit 2 Together: Concepts in Knitting, with more information here.  nona loves Freddie Robins's piece - there's something about that positive and negative space interchange.
