Art is good…
Knitting and textile art is better! Hildur BjarnadÃ³ttir is awesome. She’s an Icelander (like you couldn’t tell from the name?) living in Portland, with quite the textile art background.
No heat furnace Lopi sweaters here… she even did a cross-stitch album cover for a band! If nothing else, you need to check out (on the art page) these two pieces:
“Fairy Puke” (velvet pile embroidery on canvas – see photo at right) and
“Untitled (Drawing)”, a knit piece.
Oh, I love textiles!
