From my kNotes for kNitters© series of collages, ruminations on the theme of kNitting in particular, and Fiber Arts in general ... this is "Hands\/Knit #1".

As I knit, I look down at my hands moving, the amazing grace of muscle memory, and think about the millions of hands of other women, who have knit, patiently, joyously, over hundreds of years past.

This collage design honors those hands past, craft connected-ness, and the Art of Knitting "handed" down from one pair of hands to the next.

Each pair of hands in my collage is "real", and came from a vintage photograph or postcard. One pair of hands shown belonged to Queen Victoria! I'll leave you to guess which. (Email me if you'd like a clue.)

How I Make Them

Each image in my "kNotes for kNitters" series comes from my personal crazy\/huge collection of antique ephemera. I work carefully to restore a digital copy of the image -- no originals are harmed by my work! -- retouching, recoloring, then collaging the result you see here.

To get the level of photographic detail I want, I have my original designs professionally printed on heavyweight, 80-lb. cardstock, with a glossy finish, using permanent archival inks.

Listing Description

This is a SET OF 10 (TEN) standard size postcards, measuring approximately 5-1\/2 inches tall by 4-1\/4 inches wide.

I package each postcard set with my own printed paper "belly bands", then slip the cards into a cello sleeve. I ship in board mailers to prevent damage to your cards.

Alternate Formats

I also make this collage design as:

~ Folded A2 Note Cards with Matching Printed Envelopes

~ Tee Shirts \/ Sweatshirts (custom made, one at a time, to your size & color specifications)

~ Large refrigerator magnets (5-1\/2 x 4-1\/4 inches)

You'll find these matching items listed in my Store; or drop me a line and I'll list them for you. And of course I'm always happy to combine shipping to save you money.

Thanks for visiting my Store!
