a conversation between two friends separated by one state, sharing the same passion for the art of knitwear.

knitorious is an archive for knitwear designers, knitwear students, knitwear lovers and even the knitwear curious.


work in progress..

Here are a few photos documenting a bit of my process, as I work towards making
this little wet-felted top. I only have the front completed so far. Today I will work on
the shape/felting of the back panel, and attach both front and back at the shoulder
with needle felting. I wished to make something real native, again, thinkin'
about my photoshoot with Ali. So, I think I will leave this piece open at the
sideseam, with maybe a lace-up detail on each side... we will see!

Close up texture photo. You are able to see bits of matter left behind
in my wool roving. I left most of it in, and just needle felted clean roving
over top to decrease the visibility.

Clean cut edges, and needle felted touch ups. Also, I believe the beading is
about 3/4 of the way finished (after four days of work..). I'd like to add a bit
more of the turquoise/copper color combination.

Water current-inspired swirls in these clear plastic beads/pyrite.

I'll put up photos of the completed piece once I get there!
