Late last year, I got an email from a filmmaker called Nav, as she was doing some film stuff about the urban landscape artwork of KNITTING. I've posted a couple of times here about my laneways in Sydders, and I've done a bit of knitting myself through my backstreets. All street sign poles, and all stripey socks that look excellent on said poles. I watch tv, and I knit them and then I sew them up guerilla style.
Being online a LOT helped me discover these gorgeous outdoor things (I follow link after link after link after link - it's a hypertext dream I'm on), but I didn't try my own one until I read grrl+dog's blog, as she whips up socks and sockettes in my neighbourhood here in Sydney and perhaps knowing (and seeing for myself) someone else was doing it, helped me knit them up too.
So, back to darling filmmaker Nav, she came and visited me one afternoon and we chatted and you can watch it here (as a sneaky peaky look):
So that's what I look like, outside of photos. That's the first video of me ON THIS BLOG. ARGH! I feel a bit weird showing you cause this is what I am in real life and I'm so happy with how it looks and Nav's excellent, but I've gone a bit shy!
Anyways, if you'd like to see more, please visit Nav's blog and subscribe to her youtube channel especially if you also knit up your streets in your part of the world! She's on a big travel film adventure soon, and has plans on talking to more people I'd imagine. Denise from grrl+dog is also on Nav's youtube channel, so check that out too!
I'll just go hide away for a few hours, and creep by shyly to see what you think! Eep!
