Like paintings and theater, knitting--yes, knitting--needs to be appreciated from a distance. Fine to appreciate it close at hand, but step back too, says Sasha Kagan, a British designer who works in the medium. Kagan has made a name for herself in a field that for centuries had been full of anonymous craftspeople. Her work is on exhibit at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London until June. Kagan's interest in knitting began when she was 4 years old and learned the technique from her mother.
