I came across this artist on textileartist.org which is a great site for all sorts of interviews and information on textile artists. I was looking for knitting and crochet artists because I’d like to think about using knit or crochet as a substrate for some of my work. I’m often thought of also using weave but I need to get past my block that I have in regard to weaving. It’s just the set up and the more complicated equipment used. I balk out even getting my loom out, in contrast to the ultimate simplicity of knitting and crochet – a circular needle or a crochet hook and yarn and I’m ready to create.

This example is not actually knitting or crochet but embroidery, but turned out to be my favourite. Her crochet was mostly doilies and not what I was thinking of. I’m looking for a way of crocheting or knitting an organic substrate to further work on.
