More Elmwood area

This is a series derived from a glass artist named Klaus Moje. I pick out a piece of an artist I like and duplicate their colors exactly. This takes a lot of dyeing . Then I roll out balls of the colors and knit them. This little color exercise has helped me increase  my color sense . I like to fill a whole intersection with one idea.

It’s very comfortable to sew these up, for the Russian too. We feel like we are just out in our street home , working. Today people asked us if someone was paying us to do this.No, is the answer to that one. I walked in to Sweet Temptations to get a free fudge sample. “We made you  a yarn bomb” I told the clerk.

“What!’ he shouted.
” Art” I backpedalled” We made you an art installation” . He still looked pretty dubious.
