cups

knit rims The combination of living in a city and having a project like Ordinary Objects has meant I pay a lot of attention to trash. I've found coffee cups are the ubiquitous urban garbage. I wondered what I could do to highlight/transform these abandoned cups. In a departure from knitting a circle in the center, I covered them with a thin layer of gesso and knit around the rims with handspun lace weight yarn. You can see part of the process in a short film by Karl Cronin as part of his In the Studio series for Mission Loc@l.
