where inspiration turns to chaos
Proof positive it's all about the making and giving! Although I do like the idea of someone hosting a street party and flash mob in my honour for all things yarny!
I saw this on The Today Show. It was the first time all those sweaters had been worn as she had just been making and storing them for years and years and years. Incredible! Hope all is well with you. Tammy
I loved this video, so uplifting!, and the story was fascinating. From what I could gather, it came to light when a survey done into how people coped with living in a run down area, and this was like a survival technique. When Loes and her jumpers came to the attention of the Rotterdam Museum they incorporated all the jumpers into an exhibition. Apparently she designed and knitted over 500 sweaters since 1955. There are some photos of them on Steven West's blog... http://westknits.com/index.php/2013/01/loes-veenstra-field-trip/Mia S
