Kaffe Fassett

Several people told me I MUST see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum.  I must admit, I didn't know a lot about him, but I'm not so very bothered about quilting, and while I love to knit, I wasn't too sure an exhibition of knitting would grab my imagination.
Well ... you MUST see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition!  There are three weeks left.  It was a mesmerising, enticing, dancing world of colour that reminds me there's no such thing as colour going out of fashion, and once more confirms that craft holds as much richness, joy, creativity and respect as other art forms.
I only have to remind myself now, that I don't need to learn quilting at the present time.  Perhaps I'll make a rag rug ... oh yes, and one of these eccentric hats.
