It’s pretty amazing what a free offer will inspire people to do. For me, to win all that yarn motivated me to post something here, which I haven’t done in almost 2 years. So, here you go, a contest for a Year’s worth of Yarn from Red Heart. Every time that this link is used for contest entry, I get another entry. Once you enter, you will be able to do the same thing and get extra entries when your friends and family enter. I am no longer using VHS to work with due to the chemical smell problem I had while hand crocheting a giant rope from about 100 tapes, six at a time. This contest also inspired me to learn how to read a crochet pattern. I never learned crochet proper, so this is like learning a completely foreign language with a twist of math, as you may know. Counting stitches…
I still have not even processed half of the experiences I had in the 4 days I was in New York City. I danced in Times Square with an old guy named John, I walked through K-town at 1am feeling safe, and I grew to love the inhabitants of Manhattan. I can’t wait to return, hopefully for an opening in Chelsea. I am working on Star Wars, my newest coil pot, in my spare time. I am fully inspired from this trip. Vogue Knitting Live! is an incredible event that I am just barely grasping fully with my non-conformist creative brain. The next event is the first weekend in April in Seattle. See you there!
I opened a store on Art of Where!!
The Mandalas can now be yours! So far, I have only designed a couple phone covers, but I will be adding designs and products daily until I have a nice selection.
Visit my store Adrian Kershaw.
Traveling 2,000 miles to share my art was such a blast. I met so many beautiful people and had many phenomenal days in the city. I hope to continue to show the world the ways in which we all can think outside the box. I made the Blank Tape Cape with Lady Gaga in mind and while I was at the event, in the Knitted Gallery, several people exclaimed, “Lady Gaga!”, while pointing at the cape. Think it, and it shall be. Traveling in the winter is not the best choice of seasons, but I had no weather related delays and I seemed to miss the storm as I roamed further up the coast to Boston and then New Hampshire for a much needed family reunion. If you like what you see, please follow the links here and “like” my facebook artist page. Thanks!

I have been so busy with Art and Life. So many things I haven’t updated. Part of this project has taught me to be patient and not push this on people. They tend to find me, or get me when the time is right. I did this interview a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed talking with Erin, she really “got” me. This is a great summary my art and my intentions.
Please check it out.
We came, we stitched, we conquered.
30 X 6 1/2 feet
100% Recycled VHS tape. Created in 3 weeks with the help of over a dozen volunteers that crocheted and knitted with a new to them material. It was a lot of fun.
Artist in Residence space at Renewal Underground
I can’t say enough about my Artist in Residence experience so far, it’s just completely amazing and inspiring.
