    Hello kind Knit Hacker Folk and Danielle, I love this Folk-Art Crabs piece – a tiny 3-D knitting installation (and I love the knitter, who happens to be my husband… : >)). Kirk made this piece and gave it to old friends who hosted us in Nova Scotia. Kirk actually found the crab shells off of a Mahone Bay shore, dried them out, painted them, and then knitted them bodies. There are more nautical-themed installations Kirk has knitted (a jellyfish, a lionfish, a pufferfish, a turtle…) to be seen on his website, http://www.kirkdunn.com. As for the Stitched Glass tapestries (his BIG installation), Kirk has just finished it after 15 years of knitting. He will be touring the tapestries, alongside a one-man show called The Knitting Pilgrim, starting in May, 2019. Info on that show can be found on kirkdunn.com too, ergoartstheatre.com, or The Knitting Pilgrim’s Facebook page. Thanks for the wonderful shout-out.
