To Keep Me Warm At Night

Tyler Mackie - Embrace Me: So Big You Can't Get Around It (2010)

Tyler moved in next door. She's got short poem hair, authentic eyes, and a smile that surprises when she tells you she's not a Wisconsin native. Usually these days that's all bundled up beneath layers of her own creations, meticulously crocheted pieces of warmth and love and art. Her recent specialty is the "neck-lace", a revived decorative collar technique that's pretty practical for surviving Wisconsin winters. The styles range from ostensibly regal to beautifully mangled. Oh, and she also has a "fictional collaborator" named Girl, but that's a whole 'nuther discussion.
