Based on the Spring Flowers egg owned by Tsar Nicholas II (get historical note and/or link)
Knitted shell over wire armature; cotton and rayon fibers. The flower basket is also made over a wire armature, and is removable. The two halves can be fastened together to close the egg.
This piece appeared in Astounding Knits! by Lela Nargi. (Amazon link)
Audrey is made of wool yarn that I dyed and spun. The stuffing of her “flowerpot” can be removed so you can wear her like a hat …. if you dare. There’s wire inside her tendrils so she can clutch a dead chicken, or something more substantial.
Inspired by the fabulous aria sung by the Queen of the Night in “The Magic Flute,” I found wonderful colors of mohair boucle and drew a paper template for this shawl, then freeform-knitted the various pieces. It was exhibited at a New York gallery show in 2005.
Using charts from northwest Pacific Coast tribal images, the hat was knitted and felted, then supported with a wire insert and a concealed cap (so it wouldn’t fall down over the wearer’s face!) On the left: front of the hat; right: back.
Shaped in a circle, using the traditional “Old Shale” pattern to create a circle with undyed Shetland yarns. Right: in progress; sleeve placement shown in fuschia yarn
A fun scarf in a sort of boucle, sock-weight yarn. Yes, they are three-dimensional.
Playing with the idea of attaching hands to a wide scarf (with a head-hole) and a hat. The shrug hands can be worn as gloves.
