Knitting with Copper wire

I've started my textile picture. I managed to paint the canvas black, though I think that maybe a textile background would be better, a thin layer of felt maybe. I've spent the afternoon producing a strip of knitting on my very old, but faithful Singer knitting machine. I used a combination of copper wire and a rayon yarn I have in my weaving yarn stash.

So far, I am happy with that and have attached it to the canvas with my newly purchased staple gun. I love tools!

My next part to this is to knit a lace with that beautiful curve. It's taken me ages, but I think I've got it about right. I will try and finish that tomorrow.
