In 2010, I turned my hands away from fabric and machine stitch to freeform hand-knitting to create three-dimensional abstract fiber works. Inspired by large shapes in nature, such as mountain sides and mima mounds, they are studies of serenity and strength. The softness of the knit structures belies the ruggedness of the hard solids of rocky mountainsides and packed earth of the mounds. Other pieces are brighter and whimsical, using the media to lighten the emotion.
