A couple of weekends ago my friend A and I went to the ultimate exhibition for sweater enthusiasts: the Kunsthal’s display of "The sweaters of Loes". Loes is an elderly lady from Rotterdam who knitted over 500 sweaters in her life, mostly to her own design. Apparently she just cast on and patterned the sweater as she went along! This resulted in some really amazing color and pattern combinations. Definitely one of the most fascinating exhibitions I have ever been to!
(The super-rainy) Day 3 of wearing @thehill_side ‘s hemp denim sneakers is up on warpandweftblog.tumblr.com, and later today I’ll be talking about this 114-year old “Irish stitch” quilt that my great-grandmother made, back when grandmas did that kind of stuff. #thehillside #quilt #vintage #menswear #textiles #handmade
