Headhunter, yarn, 2012 (commissioned)

Tracy Widdess is a monster knitter who creates her own designs, but will even take your ideas and do commissioned pieces of knitwear. Browse through the gallery here to see her creations that are from the outer limits of her knitting imagination. It’s awesome to see one person take a laid-back and conservative craft form and blow it all to hell and back.

Feather Child 2&4


Will we be able to resist it?
Of coursed not, I say.
The endless opportunity
to better our future,
to improve the human race,
and solve the endless
problems of more.

Will we be able to resist it?
Once we have cured the sick,
to improve the well,
what fun we’ll have
making useful modifications
improvements and special vocations.

Will we be able to resist it?
A decoration applied with
a gene, not a needle.
To breath under water
Wouldn’t that be useful,
or to fly who could resist that.
To be special we all want it,
once we are no longer a child.

Will we be able to resist it?
Is evolution ours now?
Will it be like most,
money will buy the prize?
You will need to be
something like a Rothschild
to be able to fly.
Or to glow in the dark
a Geldof or a Spark.
Is it about to change,
are we to be in charge? –  Lucy Glendinning
