Gorgeous Knitted Things


As mentioned in post previous post (read The Big Angel Blow-Out here), once in a lovely while, Cath and I get to meet some pretty spiffy people. Last weekend at a craft fair we had the pleasure of meeting Kay Moates of On Slender Threads: knitter extraordinaire.

Kay expertly mixes mohair, cotton, silk and stones into her creations. They remind us of ButtercupLtd's baubles that we mentioned in an earlier post. Also, her scarves and shawls don't just look delicately beautiful, they also feel luxuriously soft and weighty in a comforting way (most of the stones anchor the ends of the scarves).

The photo to the left is just another gratuitous paper crane photo (see background- we really liked that shed). In the photo to the right Kay let me try on some of her scarves (that's me containing my giddiness and trying to look like a thoughtful blogger).



Her gorgeous creations also remind us of softer versions of Rodarte's Vogue-coveted knits.

I love great knits and as a fairly advanced knitter, I always think about how it was made. Those Rodarte knits would be extremely difficult, even the tights. I also think that those dresses might become misshapen fairly quickly if you are not careful. Just think about how easy it would be to snag those garments on something!

Anyway the scarves and things that you are modeling here are very beautiful. They would not be hard to make. In order to get this look, though, you would have to use very expensive and luxurious yarns.

It sounds like you guys are becoming famous there in Atlanta!
