There's a new exhibit at the PS 122 gallery titled "Yarn Theory," described as "an exhibition which highlights the vibrant and deep interrelationship between the sciences, mathematics, crocheting and knitting."
I stopped to check it out. This couple next to me were looking at the photos of the contributors to something called "The Knitted Mile." And the guy says, "Hey, Iggy!" They left, and I took a closer look... It's not Iggy Pop, but there is some resemblance... though this fellow is wearing a shirt, of course...
You know who was also a good knitter? Sylvain Sylvain.
I was sitting in Manic Panic one day and this guy came in with a bunch of really nice sweaters. (Funny, he knitted holes into them.) I'll never forget it b/c he just said: My name's Syl. So cute. Why do I think he's Isaac Mizrahi's cousin? Is he? I forgot where I heard that.
Thanks, anon -- I was not aware of that... According to Wikipedia:
Sylvain Sylvain (born Sylvain Mizrahi, February 14, 1951 ) is a rock guitarist, most notable for being a member of the New York Dolls . . . When asked if he was related to American fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi (born October 14, 1961) he responded, "No. Only in spirit."
That's funny b/c on Isaac Mizrahi's site, it says he's Syl Sylvain's cousin.
