Accessories: Adrienne Rogers Hand-Knit Throws and Blankets

Issue 12 · Inspired Seating · March 23, 2010

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. Go to Adrienne Rogers for more information.
