Kari Steihaug

I'm in love!

Norwegian artist Kari Steihaug has a lovely project called Archive; The Incomplete and Forlorn. I can't link to the specific page on her website (I hate that!), but I've posted the two pictures of the project here. She is collecting pieces of unfinished knitting. They are really lovely. There is also a component of the project called The Tatters of old pieces of worn knitting (see her site above for these).

I love that the Virgin Knitters project is sort of the knitting precursor to these two ideas. First you have the pieces about learning to knit, then you have the ones that the knitter never finished (you know we all of some of those), and finally the finished knitted garments after they are used and used and used....
