Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting

That's the name of a new exhibit opening this week at the Museum of Art & Design here in NYC. The show runs from January 25th until June 17th, 2007. Field trip, anyone?

Here's just one of the items to be exhibited -- a tiny pair of gloves knitted out of silk, using wire in lieu of knitting needles. Impressive! (Though my hands are cramping, just looking at them.)

That's like those "bible written on a grain or rice" type of thing you see from time to time. How the hell did they knit those??
