Our friend Meg in New York curates craft shows; she recently sent us this report:
Using needles as her basic tool and a single continuous thread, New York fiber artist Adrienne Rogers hand knits sumptuous blankets and throws in muted palettes and rich textures, taking her inspiration from nature: the surface of water, rivers rocks, cloudscapes. Rogers, originally from Toronto, learned to knit at the age of eight from her mother, a weaver and owner of a contemporary craft gallery. She earned a university degree in Italian studies and pursued a career in graphic design before devoting herself fully to knitting; her work has been shown at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and the London Craft Fair.
