Some quick snaps of my work for "Knitting Nancy"
Make sure you check out Tracey's photos of all the fantastic crochet and knitted works by the rest of the KN Crew.
"I Heart Wool"
Whenever Lucy travels
across the wild seas
she takes her knitting with her
- or Yarn Bomber as she prefers to be known -
needles always at the ready
Pearl's kitten is very mischievous, his name is Knit
Juliet's alpacas have excellent eyesight and hearing
and will alert her to danger
with a staccato alarm call.
Mary had a little lamb
his fleece was not white as snow
as he liked to gambol
in the wet, green grass
Marguerite grooms her angora rabbit Pierre,
plucking his maulting fur.
Then she spins his fur into beautiful angora wool.
Sometimes she will cut pieces off for the birds to line their nests.
Cemile found an orphan angora kid goat and kept him warm
by cutting holes in sock and making a little coat.
Now her goat provides her with plenty of wool to make her own turkish socks.
Bridget and Judy loved to knit stripes.
Their horizontal designs caught the eye of the editor of
legendary craft magazine "Golden Hands" who featured the pair
on the cover of issue 5 in 1972.
There was some controversy during the photo shoot
when Bridget accused Judy of using a knitting machine.
