The Love of Knitting

An article written by Karin Schott in the February 1, 2016 Huffington Post, The Ex-Husband Sweater, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/karin-schott/the-exhusband-sweater_b_9132208.html speaks to the emotional investment a knitter has to her work.  How many of you can understand her thoughts expressed in the article?  I certainly do.

I live in a world of mixed media, primarily focused on yarn and fabric. Currently, I'm exploring the world of fashion design, specifically dart manipulation along with bead embroidery. I enjoy translating my work through the use of photography.

  1. I’m not a knitter and didn’t know about the sweater curse but that was a great article to read. We humans do find symbolism everywhere we look, don’t we?
