October project in progress...



well, I'm still slacking on lining the knitted bags. So, I've gone with a past "do something new" idea which has not yet seen fruition: combining knitting and stained glass and tile mosaic to make an art piece. Here's some shots in progress:


It should be done tomorrow, hopefully. In case the photo doesn't show it well, the cross shape in the middle is knitted.

It is amazing!!! What are you going to do with it?

Knit and fall back in it said...

That is pretty cool. I like it. I have this idea in my head about a fair isle or intarsia project stretched over a frame and hung on the wall. Maybe even felted, it is still in the planning stages.

Thanks!

Srh, it will be a wall hanging, hopefully. It is mounted on a canvas. My only concern is that it might be a bit too heavy what with tile grout added.

Knitbackandfallinit, I think that's a great idea as well - particularly if it's like a portrait. Actually, the Knitting Masterpieces book would be cool for this... you could actually have a knitted Mona Lisa!
