There’s a new show up at the Say What? Gallery! It’s based on this Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote:
“Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”
These are the two new works that I hinted at in the last post. They’re made from unraveled sweaters and yarn scraps knit back together. In drastic contrast to my knit maze, I used small knitting needles. In working on these pieces, I thought about wear this yarn had come from, sometimes from a thrift store sweater, or the back of a friend’s closet, or simply leftovers from a hat project. Some of this yarn has been moving with me, from home to home, for years.
Once I started playing with smaller needles and scraps of yarn, the process developed as the pattern slowly turned into a landscape, and I changed the yarn colors around to emphasize the rolling hills.
The show is open until August 18th.
