New Tapestry: Self Portrait as Mary Kate with Carpet Bag

Self Portrait as Mary Kate with Carpet Bag

After my stint away at Art Basel Hong Kong and staying warm inside on the weekends, knitting, I thought that it was time to get some weaving done!  I have been working on some small pieces that are based on collages that I did awhile ago.  I am enjoying working these tapestries as shaped pieces, meaning that they still reference their collage roots.  It also allows me to play around with them in other collages.  You can see below that  I thought it would be fun to add the tapestry to a magazine cover!

The tapestry has been shortlisted for the Kate Derum Small Tapestry Award 2013, so it will be on display later in August.  I will post the dates and shortlist information closer to the show.  I'm looking forward to seeing the other tapestries from around the world!

Nifty Knitters!

Wow! My mittens were short listed for the @elementeden_au Knit Off prize! So glad to see knitting promoted and to be apart of such an awesome group!! #knitting #knitgeek

I am so excited to be a runner up for the Element Eden Knit Off competition!  There were so many fantastic entries and I'm so pleased that my grey and yellow mittens made the list!  I'm meant to receive a small runners up gift, not sure what it is but I will keep an eye on the post.  The winner had created a beautiful sweater with triangle patterns, definitely a worthy winner.  I'm slightly jealous of them receiving a years supply of wool from Cleckheaton, though I'm sure my husband is a little relieved.

Yup... Added a Pom Pom! #knitgeek

Keeping on the knitting theme, I finished a beanie recently using up some of the lovely Ms. Gusset yarn that I had left over from my fingerless mitts.  And no hat is complete without a pom pom!
