Compulsive knitting? Ha. That ain't no compulsive knitting.

(says the knitting book author and ex- knitting mag editor)

Compulsive knitting is when you have to knit 'til your fingers bleed to make a deadline. But otherwise, this is pretty awesome! Thanks for posting!

pretty great. Thanks. I wish I knew more about the story behind El Pescador; it's pretty much perfect as far as setting a mood via knitting ethnography goes (wow, did I really just type that sentence?). The cat, the storm, the open-gauge net like knitting, awesome.

We borked the site, apparently.

I just noticed that the site I posted is sometimes having errors. If you have trouble, try this instead. In fact, check it out anyway because it has a few more pictures from the series.

This is so very cool. Thank you. The one of the mental patient happily knitting spiders is creepy and beautiful.

I love this one. It's so hard to intergrate that kind of hot pink into a whole without making it overbearing.

It's like Jeff Wall meets BoingBoing but with bad lighting and even worse Photoshop. Which could really go either way, depending on what you like.
