Visible Mending

My naughty beagle, Keaton, chewed up my beloved waxed plaid field bag from Fringe Supply Co. He gutted it like a rabbit! It called for some visible mending inside and out. It took a whole week of working on nothing else but I may like it better now!

Wearable Maps

Navigating a Salt Lake City can be made easier with an interactive map that also keeps you warm. Why use tech when a scarf is a more tactile way to find your destination? Pin your favorite hangout or mark your starting place. This map of Salt Lake City can be your companion around town and won't run out of batteries. Pattern available on Ravelry here

Mushroom Shrug

Just a quick shrug I designed based on one I have in my wardrobe. I liked the construction of it so reproduced it in a mushroom color. I published the pattern on Ravelry here if anyone else wanted to make it. The original is a wardrobe staple and I think I might do another one in yellow.

From the pattern: Utah has several thousand species of fungi, quite amazing for a high desert. From delicately edible to the most deadly, mushrooms grow in many places around the state. Mushroom spotting is a great way to spend a day outdoors but you might need a shrug to fend off the damp environment that mushrooms love.

Wearable Landscapes

My exhibition Wearable Landscapes opens tomorrow at Finch Lane Gallery. If you are in Salt Lake City, I hope to see you there tomorrow night when I will be giving a gallery talk at 5:45. This exhibition is a culmination of my artist-in-residency at Great Basin National Park and I couldn’t be more excited. And if anyone is a knitter and wants to knit any wearable art piece for themselves, all the patterns are on Ravelry. It’ll be worth a trip to the see it because two other fantastic artists also have shows in the gallery, all art inspired by nature: Vanessa Romo and wren ross. Thanks Salt Lake Arts Council for the amazing opportunity!
