knitting with wire

So, I recently learned to knit (for the third time) and I think it's taking this time. Part of what I learned this time around is that you have to practice...oh!
What inspired me to pick up the needles was seeing a student of mine knitting with wire! Loved it! had to do it. And I have a whole slew of telephone wire. So here's my two pieces, so far, of knitted wire. (I'm also learning about the size of the needles, this time around.)
Then, when I saw Kristine Mays incredible work, I was all the more inspired! I know I won't be knitting any full size dresses anytime soon, but I sure love the concept.
I'll keep you posted...


  1. Way to go Jane! Knitting is great fun.....I am quite addicted to it. Have tried with wire too but not with such a good result as you. Was amazed by your lovely pictures in cyanotype. Have never seen anything like it. How is it done?

    Take care

  2. Love the knitting with telephone wire - very cool. What a great idea. What size needles are you using?

  3. How fabulous! Um, a workshop perhaps??? xo

  4. Oh my goodness! Fun craziness (in a good way), Jane!
