Although there is no shortage of knitting-related content on the web (and yes, I have joined Ravelry) I’d like to add my two cents today. First, here’s a scan of my alpaca sweater at approximately 12x lifesize (click to enlarge to full size). And now that the scene is set, I’d like to tell you about one of my favorite short films.
Adults love Wallace and Gromit as much as children do. Read all about them here. A Close Shave, an animated Wallace and Gromit claymation tale by the enormously talented Nick Park, is a film I’ve watched at least a dozen times in the company of my grandchildren. It has great fiber content! Do yourself a favor and rent/buy/borrow this film and become a fan, as I am, of Wendolene’s Wools and Wallace’s Knit-0-matic. Enjoy the artistry of Park’s rendering of knitted fabric in the unlikely medium of clay. Cracking good!
