Augusto Pinochet from my evil world leaders series, 2009
very challenging knitting the areas around the eyes as many colour changes (I'll attach a pic of the bobbin-craziness)
knit my parter's parents in a double portrait
he a doctor of visual arts and she a film maker
they liked it
from the evil dictator series, 2009
the first portrait that I knit up in my series of evil world leaders
7th of 9 portraits of leaders for good for a show
knit in worsted weight yarn
1999 Portraits of friends in reclaimed and donated free worsted weight yarns.
OK, so I keep hearing everybody complain about purling. They don't like to do it, some even avoid any project that has a lot of purl stitches in it.
So finally i finished the back piece. No all that's left are the handles and the lining. I'll probably sew in a fabric bag and add some fake handles....
If I live to 90, I want this one!
