Shit is about to get real crafty at the Craft and Folk Art Museum on Wilshire. The organization has invited New York designer and knitting fiend Lindsay Degen, who has collaborated with fashion label VPL, to sit in the museum's windows for two days while she knits. The exhibition, which Degen is referring to as a "Knitting Factory," is meant as a testimony to just how long it takes to create clothing by hand.
Degen will start her short residence in the window wearing a nude-colored bathing suit, and will don each piece of knitted clothing as she completes it. Catch her in various states of undress Friday, March 8th from 11am to 5pm and Saturday, March 9th from noon to 6pm.
