i make no excuses for continuing on a textile theme. esp when that textile is knitting. it seems (to me) that knitting, of all the textile forms, is the easiest to dismiss if it's even talked about at all. a great shame as there's so much that can be done with it and so much local culture associated with it.
i was delighted then to come across knitsonik who not only engages directly with the environment (see the source book) but also does field recording.. felix - i am projecting a lot of love your way. i adore work like this, that takes a little from here, a little from there and makes you think differently about your own practice.
*i feel it's only fair that in this blush of enthusiasm for knitting that i can't knit for toffee!
