A visit from Adele

Adele is a local artist, and knitter, and occasionally (when we are very lucky) even teaches at Noe Knit! She came by to show us her latest work. She is an encaustic painter/artist. Her work is amazing.
She also decorated one of the San Francisco hearts. And since then, has adorned one of her hearts for the last few years.

She came in to show us a pair of wings that will be installed soon. We discussed the pros and cons of the different materials: plastic tape vs. wool, vs. acrylic. One wing here is plastic.

And one is wool, or a blend.

Notice the wonderful increases and decreases and purling that make this wing actually look like feathers. Fantastic! Thanks for showing us!
