I've Been Practicing My Knitting
Nearly every year I take up knitting in the winter and every year I get involved with others things and knitting gets left behind, unfortunately. Over the last couple of weeks however, I've been trying it once again. Every Wednesday during the winter here at Penland is "Textiles Wednesday" and the textiles studio coordinator, Megan Fluegel, leads a class in one of any number of textiles techniques. Knitting was the focus of the last two classes and I have been practicing away. Since I have knitting on my mind, I thought I would share one of my favorite knitters, Yokoo, who in addition to making incredible scarves and cowels, makes over-sized knitted chain necklaces.
Thanks for reading.
