Yesterday, I stopped by The Future Perfect on Great Jones Street to see the wonderful world of Donna Wilson, winner of the 2010 British Designer of the Year award. Ms.Wilson creates the most wonderful knitted creatures, as well as textiles, hats, scarves, ceramics, pillows, and furniture. It was all so lovely and the kind of work that brings a smile to your face and just makes you happy.
I never expected it would happen to me, but I think spending so much time with Jenny has started to rub of on me. For the first time ever, I want to knit things. Jenny had a few of us over her apartment last night for craft night. Four of us were knitting and Jennifer S. was doing needlepoint. With the help of Jenny’s talented intern, Lissa, I started my first project – a chunky, multi-colored, multi-textured scarf that I am super excited about. I picked it up pretty easily and I must say, I really enjoyed it. It’s so relaxing and meditative. Like a great book, I’m anxious to see the results, but don’t know that I want it to end. I’ll post the final piece whenever I finish it.
