Today’s topic was inspired by a headline recently featured on my DIGG widget. I have to admit, the title got me.
Strange Knits and Yarn Monsters
How could I not check that out? I was directed to this link . . . which highlighted an article with another great title.
When Art and Knitting Needles Collide
Where I was treated me to pictures like this . . .
And what about this?!
A knitted pink bunny big enough to be spotted from the Earth’s orbit! How long did it take to knit that? How much yarn was used? What in the world was the inspiration? Was it a dare? A challenge? A lifelong goal?
To think I'd be thrilled if I could knit a scarf.
I have a weakness for knitted shawls and ponchos. I own quite a few. More than once a patron at the library has asked if I made it myself. I wish. I can't knit or crochet. I'd like to learn. But that would take time. Something I don't have enough of as is. Maybe someday. . .
Although I doubt I'll attempt something like this . . .
Nope. This is more my style . . .
What about you? Do you knit or crochet? If so, how long did it take you to learn and what was your most adventurous project? Got any Yarn Monsters under your bed?
