Hands are at heart both of the labour of textile and of dyke lust. Hands act as the connective thread between the identity of textile maker and the queer, knotting them together. The queer space I create, then, is one of inseparable hands, coming together. In their abstraction, they are five-pointed stars - a center, the palm, and five fingers, stretching out.
