My Dadaist Poem by Mary Lou Fall

My Dadaist Poem

 

The following pictures were taken by Mary Lou Fall and were NOT altered using Photoshop.  The origami was folded by Melissa, and Tristan Zara’s cut-up technique described in the Dada Manifesto was used for the poem.  Thirty-one words were cut up and twenty-five were randomly drawn from a brown paper bag.

This week, I started  working on a new knitting project.  Of course, this is in conjunction with Silke from Coco Knits.  Last summer, I discovered  Noro’s Kibou, a DK weight yarn, 54% Cotton, 34% Wool and 12% Silk.  The pattern number YS585 Ladies Raglan Sweater comes from Noro the World of Nature Vol. 35.

The  lace pattern consists of 12 rows with the back and front knitted exactly the same.

I like knitting with patterns designed by Noro because they are written with few words and are pretty straight forward row by row.
