Hah, my senior project for art school is knitting a GIANT maze. It will be like a hedge maze, but with knit walls instead of hedges. I'm doing it on size 50 needles, but I need miles of knitting to do it. I posted about it here.
And here's a pic of the test run I did last month. The lights are normally very dim for the installation, this was just for the picture. Oh, and you can even see my ginourmous needles in the bottom right corner.
oh, wow. I can't believe I found this KAL. My entire senior project revolves around re-knitting old sweaters. I could keep this KAL going all year just by myself.
I can explain. I'm a sculpture major at an art school, and required to do a massive senior project to graduate. Mine has developed into a large knit maze out of old sweaters. There is a lot of deeper meaning behind it, but mainly it's about texture, visual aestethics and memory. I'm creating a hedgemaze, but with huge panels of knit as the walls. I'm using size 50 needles to do this (absurdly large, but make it go very fast), plus I love the idea of being able to see through the walls of a maze. The majority of it is old sweaters that I have frogged, but I am mixing in some new yarn occasionally. I must thank my grandmother, who has been doing tons of knitting for me.
I did a test run of it two weeks ago, in a small installation room (18x20ft). That's what all of the pictures are from. Next November I plan on using a HUGE room, so I'll be doing lots of knitting until then.
My grandmother has a large collection of vintage aprons. This is based on one of them, it is rescued fabric (from a plaid shirt, I believe), and new pink fabric. It's pretty straight forward, but if there are any questions on technique or a tutorial needed, let me know. I have lots of free time since school ended last week!
This is my present to my sister for Hanukkah. I just gave it to her tonight and she loved it! She wore it most the night, and said she'd wear it around her apartment too. Oh, and apparently she used the plaid fabric to make an eye pillow for herself a few years ago. At least I know she likes the fabric.
I'm about to update my shop with keychains that I made to match my bags. I originally made them as freebies, and then decided to sell them as well. Should I list them with accessories? I'm also unsure about price...does $2.50 or $3 sound right? I saw a lot of keychains listed on etsy for $6, which seems high to me, or am I underpricing? I would probably charge $.85 for shipping, atleast until I mail the first one and find out how much shipping actually is.
I sound very unsure of myself...damn. I'm not usually this bad....sorry guys.
Oh, and here's a picture of a Lucky Monster Foot:
I have them in 5 different colors. Thanks for your input!
