Needles and yarn #1-5

This work is the first output in a new area of interest for me: printmaking. 

I have long had an appreciation of woodcuts, partly because of their use in radical pamphlets by the Diggers and others during the English Civil War, and partly because I just love the aesthetic of the woodcut print.

At a printmaking workshop, I discovered the collagraph technique and started to explore ways of printing with knitting. I find that these embossed monoprints show off the structure of the fabric, and perhaps make you look at knitting in a new light.
