Someone asked me on Etsy about knitted leaves. Sigh. If only they wanted my crocheted leaf patterns.
Since I learned to knit them online, I referred her to the site. It was a Tree Undone http://www.pokiedot.com/knit.htm the effort for Burning Man, where i found a pattern for knit leaves, that made the beautiful aspen-shaped leaves ( ignore that picture, the leaf is rounder and fuller)
Here is the N.E.pattern repurposed for a wine cozy. Ignore the cozy and see the nice leaves
But along the way, I made a 3 hour detour on looking at knit leaves and found a fabulous site by a now departed creator. Her proud daughter shares her works and her patterns are just
what I aspire to be: clear! dagnabbit without going the long way around for an effect nor presenting blobs as lines.
The TikkunTree Project
A community art project: growing peace stitch by stitch
(When completed, the TikkunTree will be a silent community sculpture, part of a larger exhibit on the olive tree; but its diverse hand-made foliage, doves and candles will speak eloquently of the thoughts and hopes for peace of its many contributors.)
Love this kind of effort!
led me to Sally George
http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/beltane06/maidensglory.htm is so much my heart and interest: leaves and flowers--- and what a neat way to have a vein down the middle!
