last friday night i met sonya.
sonya was in town for the opening of metaphoric fibers at the the textile center. her piece was knitted silk covered with beeswax, and easily one of my favorites. anna and kristin were there, and all of us skipped the artist talk to make our own small talk. the entire night i debated taking a polaroid to mark the occasion. but then i remembered i don’t like my photo being taken, so i cannot ask that others comply. so instead, i’m sharing sonya’s wonderful palette for the evening… it was so vibrant and lovely: orange scarf. chartreuse t-shirt (not as garish as my scanner would leave you to believe). plum sweater, which was handknit. an amazing handmade tan skirt, with a doily screen print and white bird applique. and kick-ass red socks and boots.
i only wish that spring had been more impressive for my friend sonya — who is flesh and blood and not just is a figment of the interwebs — so she’ll want to come back to our funny little town.
