"Divine Spirit" by Geneviève

My exploration of knitting and crocheting audiotape has been extended to investigating videotape. Three weeks ago, I picked up my size 9 knitting needles and started working on the mermaid costume for my opera, "A SeaScape Odyssey: 2012". When the videotape is knitted, using an "Irish Moss" stitch, it looks hard and brittle and reminds me of "volcanic glass". The mermaid character has been transformed into Pele, who will soon occupy the operatic stage, with long flaming red "hair".
