A sneak peak of a documentary

Late last year, I got an email from a filmmaker called Nav, as she was doing some film stuff about the urban landscape artwork of KNITTING. I've posted a couple of times here about my laneways in Sydders, and I've done a bit of knitting myself through my backstreets. All street sign poles, and all stripey socks that look excellent on said poles. I watch tv, and I knit them and then I sew them up guerilla style.

Being online a LOT helped me discover these gorgeous outdoor things (I follow link after link after link after link - it's a hypertext dream I'm on), but I didn't try my own one until I read grrl+dog's blog, as she whips up socks and sockettes in my neighbourhood here in Sydney and perhaps knowing (and seeing for myself) someone else was doing it, helped me knit them up too.

So, back to darling filmmaker Nav, she came and visited me one afternoon and we chatted and you can watch it here (as a sneaky peaky look):



So that's what I look like, outside of photos. That's the first video of me ON THIS BLOG. ARGH! I feel a bit weird showing you cause this is what I am in real life and I'm so happy with how it looks and Nav's excellent, but I've gone a bit shy!

Anyways, if you'd like to see more, please visit Nav's blog and subscribe to her youtube channel especially if you also knit up your streets in your part of the world! She's on a big travel film adventure soon, and has plans on talking to more people I'd imagine. Denise from grrl+dog is also on Nav's youtube channel, so check that out too!

I'll just go hide away for a few hours, and creep by shyly to see what you think! Eep!

  2. Just as I was about to click play I realized, "Oh boy, she lives in Australia and I'll get to hear her speak! Oh boy oh boy oh boy!" I freely admit that yes, I'm an American, and yes, I like hearing non-American accents of native English speakers. You look (and sound) great!

  3. That was so cool! It is so strange to listen to someone speak who you have only every "read". Awesome video! No need to be shy at all. You did great.

  8. Love it, especially that you thought you might get into trouble! I suppose technically it is littering, but you can only be fined if you're actually caught in the act by an authorised officer. And accent? what accent? it's every one else that talks funny LOL

  10. Wow - guerilla knitting!! I saw a pattern for a knitted car aerial "tag" in a craft book once but didn't really understand - I do now and I'm so excited! I keep looking around my area trying to think of what I could prettify... I will definitely get into this post-current projects and wedding planning!
