Congratulations to Miriam, my editor at Simply Knitting Magazine, who threw caution to the wind, and successfully knitted a Maltese Falcon. Miriam has never knitted anything like this before. There are very few patterns avaliable for Maltese Falcons so she made it up as she went along.
The Falcon has been posted to New York where he guards a collection of Film Noir.
I was pleased for Miriam, because I gave her a really difficult project to tackle for the UFO Project Administration Service, and through that, she discovered that knitting off road and making exactly what she wanted was much more enjoyable.
David Litter, DJ and embroiderer, has gathered his collective to decorate two arm chairs to raise money for victims of the Haiti earthquake. David's collective love their threads and vinyl, and we imagine they had a very thoughtful party in the making of this piece.
It is part of the Open Source Embroidery Exhibition, curated by Ele Carpenter, and the piece will be auctioned on 21st February at.
Tiburn Town Hall, 1505 Tiburon Blvd, USA.
The silent auction is from 12-4.30pm and the live from 5.
