What were YOU knitting in 1996?

Sorry for the blog silence... I've been in Michigan on vacation since the 8th and decided to just stay away from the computer. I did produce a few pounds of knitting (seriously, watching the Olympics makes the knitting just fly off the needles, I've found... that and not having to go to New Job), which I'll post next.


For now, however, here's a little something saved from my New York University Art Major days, one of many "guys" I knit freeform, in one piece, and stuffed with polyfill. This got rave reviews from professors, but I'll let you all draw your own conclusions.

I wasn't a knitter yet in 96. And that art project? I may have nightmares (in a cool, arty way).

In 1996 I was too busy actively avoiding schoolwork to do anything as productive as knitting. I did however play many, many games of Spades :D

In 1996 I was . . . in the 4th grade. I was too busy with book reports to worry about knitting! Didn't learn to knit until 2005. Oh, how time flies when you're learning algebra.

Hmmm 1996, I think that's when I got my MFA from SVA. I was making soft sculpture too, but no knitting, mostly hand sewing and some sculpy and wire. I'm sure I would have loved your "guys".
