What delicate musings! I am reminded of the alleys in Florence; gorgeous, tucked away places where hardly any tourists wandered, filled with ateliers and interesting corners. It's that I remember most fondly, particularly the late autumn light and the cosiness of shop lights. I enjoy the inside-out of cities but I rarely stop to appreciate the inside outness of my sewing or knitting. I think I should take another look.

Heh! I save all my ends running in for SSK meetings, because I can't easily do that while I'm watching TV in the evenings. I do knit, just not at SSK. :)

So strange to read a post that, to me, is in the FUTURE!!! Today is Feb 14 (still) for me. Woah.

Oh yes, the hidden... whenever I look at houses I imagine the living people behind the walls, wonder what they are doing right now. Or landscapes... how many bugs, ants, worms might be in the picture without being seen?!
Interesting thoughts in this post, Alison.

how i love the backing cloth on the print table..... ironically i tried to design prints like it but you just cant contrive it, the unplanned beauty.

I love your thoughts in this post Al, I always remember when my mother first introduced me to embroidery she told me that the underside was as important as the "right" side. More and more I am finding that these ideas are resonant in life as well as in our craft...

Mmm. Lots to think about and enjoy.

Wonderful thoughts and words. You've made me stop and think about the process...instead of trying to hurry and reach the end.

Oh yes -I could go on and on about this topic...but you know that:)
This knitting underside is gorgeous. Part of it is the beautiful photograph you have taken of it and the way you have cropped it to emphasize the cable. I like that you only show us pieces of things. It's like an abstract model that one of my students might make -you can imagine all of the possibilities it might be...
For inspiration, these types of photos are the best.
Thank you.

i loved reading this post. those little spaces are so revealing... it's fascinating to see those that are forgotten, where the 'extra' of life gets tucked, and those (like the inside of knitting, often) where such great care is taken to make everything just so.
