September means one very important thing to me… sweater weather {oh, how I’ve missed you}. Yes, I am very Canadian, as is artist Michelle MacKinnon and, from what I can tell, we also share an affinity for all things knitted. These detailed, elegant, purposely partly finished drawings {pencil on paper} are part of her ongoing series, titled “not quite perfect”:

“not quite perfect” stems from MacKinnon’s time in Newfoundland. During that time, she purchased and was given many handmade knit items: sweaters, socks, hats, mittens, scarves, etc. These pieces, with their handmade imperfections, have a heart-warming sense of charm within them. The subsequent drawings … were done in attempt to spend intimate time connecting with the pieces and recreating herself within them.”

Lovely. Happy Monday.
