Holy crow! I saw this and I almost peed myself. I thought it was beaded at first but no…no my dulcet darlings. It is crocheted!
How in the name of hooking does someone pull that off???
And clearly it’s small, its got a brooch pin seen to the back. Something of this beauty needs to be in a museum of contemporary art, not bouncing about on the bosom of some stranger.
No longer is the rusty metal of public fencing an eye sore to our people! Way to take something as unimaginative as chain link and turn it into a Wonderland!
Bravo Ladies Fancywork Society! You have warmed the cockles of mine heart.
A Ferrari…made of knitted yarn. Sure it’s cool, but what kind of mileage does it get?
Anyone who says that crochet is not a true art form gets five across the eyes! Jo Hamilton brings it and brings it hard. You may be able to make your grandma a hat, but can you make your grandma?
This installation is quite impressive and has an air of malice. Reminds me of the creeping red weed from War of the Worlds.
Artist is Ashley V. Blalock and she has mad skills.
I’m so mad cause I didn’t bookmark where I found this or the artist but I think we can all agree it’s pretty darn cool! I wonder how many sticks of dynamite there are in there? Crazy.
There are stuffed animals and then there are stuffed frikkin animals.
Here I am struggling to finish a chicken hat for my son and then this lady comes along and punches me right in the face with her ingenuity.
Can you imagine trying to count rows on something like that? And it’s not just ginormous jungle cats. Oh no. That’s only the beginning.
That right there, my friends, is a life sized bear. Look at the detail! It’s extraordinary!
It’s like this woman is a crochet DJ taking requests from National Geographic. You want a warthog with Disney-esque charisma?
Here’s Pumba for you in the crocheted flesh. You’re welcome says the DJ. Amazing.
Woke up with my phone plastered to the side of my face and this awesomeness staring back at me. Must have stumbled upon it in my fever haze.
Have you ever knitted electrical wire? Well neither has Sebastian Errazuriz but this artist found himself an old lady and made this happen! Good for them both.
“Granny Lamp” was dedicated the artist’s grandma. Awwww!
Artist, Joanna Vasconcelos, has got it going on with this lovely lacy piano ensemble! Crazy huh?
She even did these lions! I don’t think a cooler cozy exists. Tis lovely modern art, no?
This is the Yang to the Yin of tiny knitting! (That’s right. I flipped it. They’re just words and they don’t rule us. Not anymore.)
Dutch artist, Christien Meindertsma, is not only a lovely woman but one who does her knitting with needles the size pool cues!!!
Her work is giving a new light to knitting the world over. Look at this! Tis nifty, no?
If you’re hesitant to give this a shot try drinking before hand. Whenever I pick a pool cue that seems to help me, the same rule might apply here.
