The girl in the hat

A drypoint from a series done earlier this year.  Still on the theme of nostalgia that I have been stuck on for a while now.  Really enjoyed playing with the idea of the line of the etching marks against the red sewn line.  Do you remember when Mum's knitted matching hats and jersey's for their kids?  I do.  My mum did.  Real wool ones that scratched and prickled at my neck.  recently I started collected knitted soft toys.  Yesterday I got a knitted 'Big ears' (you know...from Noddy) at the hospice shop.  So exciting.
try 'googling' graffiti knitters and see what you get!  So very cool.
