Taking Wing - Hand Knitting & Nests
The first "nest" for the Taking Wing Exhibit at Waterfall Arts in Belfast, Maine is knittted from viscose + cotton yarn. It measures about 6" long, not including the strands, which will remain. I like the "dangly" look!
Here's another, using a variegated cotton yarn. Same approximate dimensions.
Most of this yarn was donated to the project by my good friend, Toni, knitter & spinner extraordinaire. Thanks, Toni!!!
The current plan is that the nests will vary wildly in color, a little less wildly in shape and only a little in size. My partner, Katie, will provide a beautiful painted & drawn backdrop in front of which the nests will hang.
Hoping for at least 20 nests!
More to follow after my first working meeting with Katie tomorrow!
