On October 2nd 2010 the Knit Cafe unveiled it’s contribution to Toronto’s Nuit Blanche. This fantastic event brings spectators out on mass to gather and gawk at a city transformed by art. From sun-down to sun-up, this all-nighter happens every year and is not be missed.
The Knit cafe offered up “Knit Magic” for the night. This exhibition explored the magic that is inherent in making things. Knit and purl magic was stitched into a strange montage, a kaleidoscope plush world.
“knit magic” like most things at the Knit Cafe was a communal effort.
