I like what happens when people mash up creative disciplines and blur the lines between them.

The exhibition Radical Lace & Subversive Knitting, currently at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, showcases some provocative work to challenge our ideas of what craft is. Anyone seen this show? The limited edition publications KnitKnit also explored some intersections between craft and art. And maybe you’ve seen the work of street artists like Knitta and their clandestine knit tagging.

Now what about things we can wear. I’m thinking a unique wrap or accessory of some kind. There are scores of unflattering hats and uninspired scarfs on Etsy. But here are a few more interesting finds.

Look how hip and sexy this lacy layering business is on Argentinean singer Juana Molina. Maybe someone will crochet one of these for you.

On the whimsical side, Twinkie Chan‘s foodie scarves are super fun.

I love the wraps that Las Lopez Las create, incorporating weaving, knit, crochet and embroidery. I want this cobweb thing!
