The same day one friend was regaling us in the yarn shop with tales of her auntie’s crochet (a crocheted Christmas tree door hanging survived a meth lab explosion), another friend emailed me a New York Times article about street artist crocheter London Kaye, who is creating large pieces for large companies:  Starbucks, Gap, to name a few.  It’s exciting to see the fiber arts exploding onto to the art and fashion scene, bringing fresh eyes to a craft which has languished in granny squares and dishcloths for too long.
