Knitweaving: Painting with loops and lines
Tapestries, Mandalas, and wearable accessories
In varying mixes of knitweaving and crochet, these round tapestries begin woven on a knitting loom, and then mounted on a metal ring, to be embellished by crochet with gemstone chips and beads.
The beauty of knitweaving lets me choose what background, free-formed row by row, can be created, then mounted on a porous background. Building up layers of applied fibers with crochet, needlefelting, and occasionally embroidery, I could go on indefinitely
When a striking colorway gets leftover from a tapestry series (I marinate them with existing and hand-painted fibers like an exquisitely chosen meal), I sometimes capture it in small pendants and pins to ease my way out of a series that needs to end, to help me let it go.
Series available in 2019, samples of custom pieces you can help design.
