Kaoru Izushi Knit Design

I have heard that a knitted piece is alive – it grows and contracts. But as I practice my art, I have also come to realize that each loop has life, like a cell, and when I knit I am combining these cells to create a whole organism. Because of this, the spirit of each piece depends on how I feel. A piece is happy or calm based on my mood and my condition as I think the cells of this knitted life. In the same way, I feel the spirit of the piece will be transferred to the person who wears it. I believe that happy sweaters will bring happiness to the soul inside. I use a hand-operated knitting loom and knit carefully with fragile paper/silk yarn with silk stainless steel thread together. I also knit natural fibers such as 100% cotton or wool.
