Modern Daily Field Guide No. 16: Painterly
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
"We collect knitting books the way some people collect art books. For many years, we’d look longingly at an extraordinary pullover by some genius like, you know, Kaffe Fassett, and we’d act like we’d just seen an exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Dazzling. Awe inspiring. Giant florals. A kilim interpreted as a cardigan. Geometric patterns that change color twenty times. We studied and loved these designs—knew them by name—and admired them for their intricacy and astonishing color. The technique? Intarsia. Paintings wrought in wool.
When Kaffe Fassett suggested that we explore intarsia for an MDK Field Guide, the only possible response was “Yes! Of course.” It was time to swim in the deep end, to go toward the projects where the color possibilities are nearly endless."
