connected – at last

yesterday i finally picked up my crochet hook and did some more work on my connected installationconnected - 1-4 d - rita summers 2012

it’s been about 2 months

[upcycled electric blanket fabric and wire; torn silk from antique kimono lining and other silk from my stash]

i’m becoming more subversive

yesterday my love and i dismantled our electric blanket

we weren’t just being destructive

it had actually stopped working

i thought the wool material would be great for dyeing

but being a subversive type, especially where crochet is concerned, i looked at the wiring (and my size 10 giant crochet hook) with a thoughtful eye

note the heat discolouration – lucky we didn’t catch fire

now i’m looking at the cotton tapes …
