I’m in the news again! Though I’m down in North Carolina recovering from several weeks of Spring shows and teaching a Skype with my folks reminded me that someone asked me for a photo and a blurb recently and now I’m featured in our local, and great, magazine: Kingston Life. I’m in glad company – Marney McDiarmid, Richard White, John D Williams, Penny Gorman and my lovely colleague and friend Andrea Graham. I’m honoured!
Meanwhile, the end of April saw my last ‘gig’ for a couple of weeks, Cardiknits Academy in Ancaster, ON. Lots of machine knitting gals looking to soak up some new stuff. I stayed with my good friend Sonja, another knitting fiend and we caught one of the last days of Coats & Clark’s outlet store, they closed May 1st!
We nabbed some yarn that I have no idea what I will make but I just had to have it and add it to my stash. Sonja was in the same head space though she did have a project that she found just the right yarn for.
Last but not least was the opening of the show which was the culmination of the efforts of sixteen artists/artisans: Kollaboration Kingston. The resulting artwork from Lindsey Fair’s project is fascinating and beautiful and can be seen at the former Sandra Whitton Gallery on Ontario Street in Kingston until the end of May. The above pic is of Trevor Waurechen and me holding the ‘Laptop Cozy’ we collaborated on, I knit it using Trevor’s fossil illustration.
