What a wonderful, wonderful story! That deserves the name of Real Art, and I hope the critics take notice.

Yes indeed. The only thing that bugged me about the article was the "aww, isn't it cute what the old ladies did" tone.

Its still going strong. I live quite near the Strathhaven home and last I heard they were attempting to knit a full sized chair.

I love it.

Have you seen Liza Lou's beaded kitchen?

this link shows a bit of the detail; and here's another.

I saw the Kitchen at the Museum of Folk Art here in NYC a few years ago, and was dumbstruck. It's amazing.

Here's a slightly better picture. Remeber that this is a 12 by 12 work. Feet, not inches.

That's glorious!

Is it permanently at the Museum of Folk Art in NYC?

There's a free (.pdf) pattern for a knitted tea set available for download on the Interweave Knits Web site ... I've seen some completed ones on various knitting blogs and it's freakin' adorable.

Re: *squee*!
some of the art is obviously crocheted as well -- the writers of the article could clearly not tell the difference; maybe they were too busy patronizing the little old ladies, *snicker*.

Re: *squee*!
Yes, that's true.

I've run into a lot of people who don't even know the difference when they are watching you do it, never mind able to tell the difference when looking at the finished product.

Or perhaps "knit" is coming to mean "make a fabric out of yarn, using one or more needle or hook type implements."
