busy making

A kitschy little collection of potholders & dishcloths I worked up and sent off to Portland to be part of an art installation charity event led by Larissa Brown in conjunction with her new book – My Grandmother’s Knitting: Family Stories and Inspired Knits from Top Designers.

I wasn’t lucky enough to have been taught to knit or crochet by a grandma, my only crocheting Grandmother died when I was 6.  I didn’t learn to crochet or knit until I was alot older & I had to teach myself (from a book) gasp!  Even still, the idyllic romance & satifaction of anything handmade calls to my inner grandma, making something so beautifully simple, useful and amazing with just your two hands.
