Knitting is going well. My studio time consists of cutting sheets for an hour and a half and then knitting for a couple of hours. I usually spend three to four hours at a time in the studio.
I am playing with the idea of getting this thing mostly constructed and dying it. I realize some of the underlying patterns and colors will show through, but I think it will need something to unify it. My previous knitted piece was tied in on itself and linked together, so unification by color wasn't necessary. Since this piece will hang from the ceiling and have the two columns I'm thinking that it will need to have a similar color to them.
In each of the two columns there will be an abstracted mass that will represent an figure. Think this form, but without the snake:
There will be a third column but it will be very short and no 'figure' inside of it.
The red knitting on is the start of the 'net' that the columns will hang from. I like knitting on the straight part much less than the round, but I think I got a system working out for me now.
