Knitting outside the box

They have an online database which everyone can contribute to:
http://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/fashion/knitting/share/index.php

There are some fantastic pieces, from knitted crowns to life size figures. And check out the yoda hat! It’s a hoot:)

Anyone can add to the collection of images. They do say the object you add shouldn’t be a garment.

Knitting in art

Knitting outside the box

Following on from the picture of the giant knitting machine the other day, I found the artist’s site

He’s knitted lead teddy bears,  a money dress and tons of other stuff. The giant knitting machine is in the ‘big projects’ section, unsurprisingly!
