Kunst og strik / Art and knitting
Jeg gik på Michener Art Museum, som ligger i det tidligere fængsel og overfor denne her ret specielle bygning - et slot i beton, som faktisk også er et museum.
On Friday, everybody were at work and in school, and I needed to decide what to do. My sister suggested that I went to Doylestown centre to take a look, and maybe even visited a museum? I had been to plenty of large shops and bought Christmas presents and such, so I thought that was a great idea.
I visited Michener Art Museum, which is located in an old prison, and right across the street from this rather unusual building - a castle in concrete, which is actually also a museum.
Jeg er faktisk ikke sikker på, at jeg ville turde have det på væggen herhjemme......
The art museum is really nice, and in the first room, I met this rather insisting painting. It actually beats my own small picture of an angry, staring chicken.
To be honest, I'm not sure I would dare having this painting on my wall at home.......
Tænk, at farve et strømpegarnstæppe sådan her! Der ville komme nogle ret fantastiske strømper ud af det, er jeg sikker på.
In the next room, it was totally different. I will not dare saying which style this is, but from this painting onward, I ONLY thought of knitting.
Can you imagine dyeing a sock yarn blanket like this? I'm quite sure the resulting socks would be over the top amazing.
Or how about this one as a sock yarn blanket? It really wouldn't be bad doing a pattern with squares like this, and then having totally different colors in a small square!
This "door" could also be knit. I just love the colors, but I guess it shouldn't be like socks. Maybe more like a sweater.
Nå. Men hvor sjovt det end var at få ideer, så strikker jeg videre på det jeg er i gang med. Det strikker jo ikke sig selv! Jeg må lige sørge for at gemme de her billeder mentalt så jeg kan tage det frem når jeg engang skal farve noget igen.
Outside, they had this stone wall. It could ALSO look great if knit! All kinds of gray, beige and brown "stones" bound together by the light mortar.
Well. No matter how much fun it is having ideas like that, I'm continuing on the stuff I'm working on. It will not finish by itself! I just need to save these images in my mind so I can remember it when I'll be dyeing something again.
