Using flash, a backdrop, and the infinite human variety, photographer Christopher Dykes is collecting a series of images of hands at work in the fiber community. The project should be available at most events Lost City Knits attends, and considerations might be made for yarn shops, guilds, or groups to participate.

Manicures, hangnails, tattoos, wristwatches, cheap yarn, expensive silk, easy socks and exquisite lace all show the human diversity and the compulsion to create.

Images are available for purchase, either as files, matted prints, or framed prints. Prices start at $35 for a high resolution image suitable for at least 10×15 printing. To purchase, navigate to the event where your photo was taken, find your photo, open it, and make note of the file name. Send an email to get discussions started.
