Strangely, there are few examples of work that interrogates the structure of knitting or lace. This poetic licence permits a vast range of work to be included, but dilutes exploration of the currency knitting in particular is currently enjoying. Rather than be pedantic about definitions of lace and knitting, McFadden has selected, along with work that is knitted or made of lace, work that is inspired by knit or lace patterns.
