Yeah, ok, looks really practical but I wouldn't wear a pair of socks made that way.

What a great piece of conceptual art that would be in a museum. I believe my non knitting friends would enjoy this. Thank you for sharing.:cheering: :yay:

Rachel John goes round the some of the stitch and craft shows in the UK. I bought a pair of needles off her! She's really nice and enthusiastic, and her extreme knitting pieces are really lovely :yay:

:roflhard::roflhard: What happens if she drops a stitch. That would be a heck of a crochet hook. :roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:

You know what I would have loved to see?
1000 strands of yarn spun into the world's fattest singles
on a six-foot long hand spindle -- and then knitted.

Performance art!

That was fun. Am I the only one that found the cascade of strands more beautiful than the finished product? As an interior design student, it gave me some inspiration for curtains, bed canopies, and such that may make an appearance in my next project. My professor will think my knitting obsession has taken me off the deep end!

I guess art is truly in the eye of the beholder. I only ask: Why? Good way to build up some muscle while knitting. ;)

Interesting? Yes. Unusual? Yes. Extreme? Yes.

Pointless? Most definitely.

If that's what she uses for one project, can you imagine the size of the rest of her stash??? :noway:

Yup. That's exactly what I thought. I'd love to sleep in a canopy of yarn like that! What a beautiful gazebo/porch it'd make too. I thought it was some sort of art exhibit just hanging there like that!

I was thinking the same thing. :roflhard::roflhard:

But still, thats amazing! I really do like the fact that they used an artistic approach with the yarns over the banister.
