Went yesterday to see the new knitting exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design here in NYC. If you're in the NY area, I strongly recommend that you make a point of seeing this small, but absolutely fascinating exhibit. My favorite piece in the show was the one inch tall sweater with a Picasso painting on the front that was knitted on surgical needles. There's a blind nun somewhere I'm sure. Check it out at...

I went last weekend ....... I have to agree that it is fascinating. Much better than I had imagined. Actually my favorites were not knitted items, but rather some of the "lace". The wire filigree and the pulpy cotton grid.
