I began drawing knitting to understand the mechanics of the stitch. Individual stitches interlock becoming a larger whole, similar to how living matter forms larger organs, ecosystems and communities. An interesting characteristic of knitting is that one side of the fabric is different than the other, ie. knit on one side and purled on the other. The opposing tension of the fibers is what gives the fabric it's elasticity as well as it's integrity. As I came to recognize the symbolism, the more interested I was to continue the drawings and make prints of them.
