Remember Carol Milne’s knitted glass entrelac from Madrona? (More pictures in that link.)
I sponsored a piece, and it just arrived in the mail, along with a postcard of Carol Milne wearing her finished creation last month. I think it must be pretty heavy when it’s all put together.
The glass is strung on an adjustable cord and is ready for wearing. The postcard says “A metaphor for the fragility of life and the power of social structure. Individual strands are weak and brittle on their own, but deceptively strong when bound together.” So true. And so cool!
If you were following on Instagram last weekend (I’m @pdxknitterati over there), you already know that WWKIP Day was a bit damp, but fun. If you weren’t following, here are some pictures for you.
Knit Picks sponsored this Pick-Nic, and gave away project bags, yarn, and books. I had a trunk show, along with three other designers. Thank you, Knit Picks!
We were greeted by this lovely KP person, wearing a bacon and eggs scarf.
Hannah loved these finger puppets!
OK, back to my knitting. Trying to finish up a pattern…What are you doing this weekend?
The glass is beautiful and KIP day looks like fun!
I sponsored a glass piece too, based on your earlier post. So exciting that it will be arriving soon!!
Looks like even a damp WWKIP day was fun!
Yay, knitted glass! Did you get a shipping notice last week? That was my first clue, and then I was really looking forward to seeing the finished garment!
