Last week the Craft Magazine blog posted this photo of Lisa Anne Auerbach’s cool St. Patrick’s day Obama dress and I had to check out more. I have to say I was interested in seeing the possibilities of what a knitting machine can do (If all goes well I'll have the opportunity to try one out in the near future - although these are done on a computerized machine), but I found Lisa’s work to be really interesting, not to mention visually impressive. I like that she models her statements herself.Click the photo to go through to her blog and see more of her work. And here are more dresses from a 2007 exhibition (lots of neat pieces these photos).

Whoops! I posted my Twiggy Bobble hat for Thing-a-day and never cross-posted it here. I wanted to get a better photo of it flat, which I only remembered to do last week.
Finally a hat I actually like on me. I am soooo not a hat person!
Pattern: Twiggy Bobble Hat from Making Things (free pattern)
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca (yay!) Sport in 505 Natural Taupe
Completed: Feb. 2008
