Knitknit by Sabrina Gschwandtner

Book Description

All over North America and Europe, a brand-new generation has taken up knitting - and is transforming the venerable needlecraft by blurring the boundary between craft and art. In Copenhagen, Isabel Berglund hand-knitted an entire room. In New England, David Cole constructed an enormous 'knitting machine' (he used earth-movers and cherry-pickers) that knit an 800-stitch, 35-by-20-foot American flag. But the projects aren't all of a monumental scale. In Los Angeles, Bridget Marrin Knits little dollhouses - complete with yarn lawns, shrubbery, and smoke-filled chimneys.Canadian Debbie New makes exquisite knitted teacups and boats. Five years ago, Sabrina Gschwandtner founded a 'zine to chronicle the trend. Now, her book "KnitKnit" brings together profiles of 27 of the most talented artist-crafters knitting today. But "KnitKnit" does more than just document their ingenious creations. Each of the profiled knitters has contributed a project - a sweatshirt kimono, a mohair and metal belt, a hobo-style shoulder bag, a geodesic-patterned cap, even a teddy bear knit from fiberglass insulation - meant to inspire you to find and follow your own creative path.
