i was told of this exhibit from a wonderful shop owner in my small town who recently was in NYC for a buying show and took in "Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting" at the Musuem of Arts and Design. the above pair of gloves, which the lovely shop owner refers to as "squirrel gloves", was knitted by Althea Merback. she has a website called Bugknits. i can't help but think that her little eyeballs are in such pain after one of these projects. YIKES! i love when people do crazy stuff like this. it truly is art for art sake....i mean who is going to wear these? how about a itsy beetsy kangaroo just out of the womb while he growing big and strong in mama's pouch??? yes, that works.
