Count it out! 1, 2, 3, days till this years Scotia Bank Nuit Blanche all night art event spectacle! If you have not attended a Nuit Blanche exhibition before then you have missed out on a night of adventure. Toronto goes particularly crazy for staying up all night and bouncing on giant wedding cakes or going to a reenactment of the famous Björn Borg and John McEnroe match circa 1980. Who knew?! What will happen is anyone’s guess. Those who go to the official Nuit Blanche website will get a leg up on planning their night out.
Be sure to drop by the Knit Cafe on this Saturday Sept. 29 to see what we’ve done this time.
Hand-knit Russian nesting dolls by the talented guest knitters that are helping us with this years display,
every one with a story to tell!
What a doll-face! A great big face for a great big doll.
Drop by at 9pm or 10pm or 11pm and/or every hour on the hour. Iwona and I will be performing “unknitters” busy with the work of deconstructing our display. Every hour one doll will be unravelled to reveal the doll nesting beneath. If you have ever balked at the idea of unravelling your hard-won knitting projects this daring display of unknitting may give you the courage to carry on and destroy what you have created. Our exhibit is called “She’s Come Undone“.
Feist won the Polaris Prize for her album Metals. I really love this photo of her and Cillian Murphy in matching hand-knit sweaters. Bless their woolen socks!
The pretty picture is a photo from Mary Rozzi.
