A Stitch in Sound

Artists weave together music and knitting, creating a symphony of subtle rhythms

November 01, 2007|By Stephanie Shapiro | Stephanie Shapiro,Sun Reporter

Artist Laure Drogoul totes her "portable apparatus for orchestral knitting" in an old, white suitcase.

Inside are 12 balls of yarn leading to 12 knitting projects. At performances in Baltimore and New York havens for contemporary craft, Drogoul's device connects knitters to one another, and by way of her soundboard, to a galaxy of domestic harmony.

If you go Sabrina Gschwandtner reads from her book KnitKnit: Profiles + Projects from Knitting's New Wave and will introduce Laure Drogoul, who will perform her "Orchestral Apparatus for Musical Knitting" from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow at Atomic Pop, 3620 Falls Road in Hampden. Admission is free. Call 410-662-4444 or go to atomicbooks.com
