Long Overdue

By , June 10, 2010 8:23 pm

These last few months have just FLOWN by and I am so behind on so many posts.  So without further ado, here are some long overdue photos of the awesome weekend workshop I took at the Textile Center back in March, entitled Artful Knit:  A Sculptural Approach to Knitting taught by Adrienne Sloane.

Adrienne started off our weekend of sculptural knitting by challenging us to knit with materials we wouldn’t normally knit with.  We were tasked to experiment and see what craziness we could come up with.  I played with wire, ribbon, fabric strips and woven tape threaded through felt circles.  It was quite a liberating experience!

I also played around a bit with “finger knitting” which I hadn’t done in YEARS.  I’m hoping to finger-knit a bit more ribbon yarn and then knit that into a bigger knitting piece for some cool knitted-knitting texture.

I think my favorite part of the class was all the discussions we had on how to knit different shapes, holes, bumps, bobbles, loops and pockets.

Some of my technique samplers turned out looking a bit like the Loch Ness monster, don’t you think?

All in all it was a FANTASTIC weekend.  Thank you so much Adrienne for being so inspiring and teaching such a wonderful class!
