And texture and surface and color. And repetition and variation. And curves and lines and holes and connections. And rhythms and pauses. Knitting is so much like music and art and dance, both in its process and in its results. I’ve been thinking about the art I like to make, and a lot of it is repetition with rhythm. Even the drawing I do tends to have elements of dance; I like to dance with my pen. When I make collages there’s often a grid or some sketchy elements of a grid, which provides structure for the dance of shapes and colors.
It’s really all the same even when it’s different.
