Background information about the artwork:

I have been exploring how you can create a Hairpin Lace crochet effect using the knitting machine.  Yes, it takes time to do – but machine knitting is a craft in its own right so I believe we should invest time in what we create.

The panels were knitted using a domestic knitting machine and crocheted as you would do hairpin lace that came of a frame/fork. I joined them together using crochet – fun to combine techniques. I love to combine different techniques see ‘I hate pink’
