March 15, 2009

These are prototypes for an installation I’m envisioning. There’d be lots of them, in different sizes, hanging by threads from a gallery ceiling. Viewers could walk among them. Kind of like a room of hanging orchids at a botanic garden.

For the knitters among you: The yarn is Habu Kusa, which is 60% mohair, 40% silk. They were knit on dpns ranging in size from US0/2.00mm to US2/2.75mm.
