Knitters today are revitalizing the craft of knitting and expanding its creative possibilities like never before. With "quilts," sweaters, shawls, sculpture, and gigantic abstract installations, conceptual fiber artists have used knitting techniques to explore the meaning of "women's work" or domestic textile practices.
In Knitting Art, Karen Searle explores the art knitting movement, profiling 18 of the most prominent and intriguing practitioners of this craft-turned-art. She examines the works and inspirations of each of these knit artists with numerous photographs documenting these artists' work and offering inspiration to those who might transcend the purely practical aspect of knitting. All of these artists share one characteristic: they approach knitting with a sense of curiosity and wonder.
