I just found out the name of the artist who will exhibit at Einerlei during Northern Wefts 2011 Chassell Tour, which still has seats available. The artist is Karena Schmidt, she was a Naturalist Ranger on Isle Royale for many years and she created a design for a sweater with the flora and fauna of the island in mind for one of the wolf/moose researchers working on the island. The title of her show and visit will be "Nature as a role model for the human experience: A Knitter's lessons from Isle Royale". She has published a beautiful pattern pamphlet 'Moosing Around' that will be for sale at Einerlei during our tour. Her latest project is charting another sweater, she already has the wolf tracks charted out and the trees. She will include orange sunburst lichens as an accent color. I love orange and can't wait to see these designs. Karena has also offered to take time off of work to be at Einerlei during our tour on Thrusday June 23, 2011 to meet and talk with our group. Sounds like this one can't be missed! Hope to see you there.
