I previously shared an announcement about the documentary YARN by Una Lorenzen, a film that looks at four different knitting and crochet artists (including Olek) with an eye towards all of the cutting-edge things that yarn crafting can do. Today I have an interview with the film’s co-director and producer Heather Millard, who shares, “I want people to enjoy the film, to lose themselves in yarn for a little while, to feel inspired by what yarn can create and represent.”
Una Lorenzen’s documentary titled “yarn” takes a look at knitting and crochet artists around the world and the interesting work that they are doing with needles, hooks and yarn. The film debuted at SXSW to mixed reviews but looks worth a watch to me.

The very first crochet artist that I profiled on this blog back in 2011 was Olek. The world was starting to get to know her from her yarnbombing. Many of the artists that I wrote about that year have kind of faded away but Olek’s work in crochet art just keeps getting stronger and stronger. It’s been awhile since this blog explored it so I thought I’d showcase some of her newer stuff here today.
