what happens here, stays here
this is a wedding dress. it's also a work of art. i wish i could say i knit it.
it was actually knit by my friend lucinda, who wore it to get hitched in vegas on new year's eve. what else would you wear to get married at the little white wedding chapel?
she brought the dress over the other night before we headed over to a new knitter initiation rite. that's michelle on the left. a jewelry designer who claims not to have knitted since she was a kid. doesn't she look remarkably relaxed for someone knitting fingering weight wool on US3s?
michelle shares this wonderful studio space with two sisters, cheryl and dona. cheryl is a seamstress and expert felt-maker. the studio is filled with amazing pieces like this felted yardage cheryl recently whipped up.
cheryl hates to have her picture taken. i don't understand why because i think she looks totally cool in this shot. she'll probably still be pissed that i posted it. (sorry cheryl).
barb is also new to knitting and also hates to have her picture taken. i had the three of them working on knitting squares to make rowan solarises. next time we get together, we'll felt them. or "full" them as the felting queen cheryl informed me. she says felting only applies to fabric created from raw fiber, not from a knitted piece.
lucinda cast on for an exciting new venture: a collection of RTW knitwear. i can't wait to see what this will turn out to be.
