So, I haven't posted anything for a long time. Ok, a really long time. But Im back and really want to share some knit art images. This first one is called, Boat with Four Figures by Katharine Cobey. She spent 5 years spinning and knitting the fiber for this piece; two 60-foot-long, 5- foot-wide, mohair panels. One of the panels is stretched to form a boat and its wake. The other panel is draped over wood logs she got from her land. I would love to be in a room with this.

Adrienne Sloane makes installations that hang from the ceiling and seem to drip and spread across the floor. They remind me of illustrations in a way.
And Naked Suits by Anna Maltz. Ive seen several photos of the naked suits before and I always have to stop and examine their oddness.

The last photo is of a little amazing knit. Its a knitted letter that was sent to President Andrew Johnson in 1868 by an inmate of the Washington Insane Asylum. It's signed, 'S.D.' and looks like its knit with a lot of care and attention to perfection. I love the thought of knitting letters to
people instead of sending emails.
