Record breaking or just plain wierd knitting April 14, 2019 00:22
As knitting is the topic today, here are some really big or just really odd knitted things..
1 - Hase/Rabbit.
It's possibly the biggest knitted thing ever made and it's rotting away on a hill in Italy. Artists made it, obvs!
2 - The World's Longest Scarft
Helge Johansen from Oslo broke the record on 12 November 2013. He's a guy.
3 - Knitted swimwear
Apparently it was a massive thing. I cannot think of anything less appropriate to make swimwear out of, but here's the proof it happened
4 - Knitted playgrounds that are big enough for actual kids!
These are amazing, beautiful, and joyful installations by artist Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam. Please look, you'll be missing out if you don't.
5 - Full body jumpers you can buy on Etsy.
I really really want this mohair genius/madness!
6 - Knitted brain beanie
Such a cool pattern on Ravelry! Knit and wear this science student's awesome brain hat and be the oddest person on the Tube for the day.
7 - A Tea Cosy big enough to cover the entire cafe
It's in the running for a world record....
8 - Sartje's Booties
Actually there is nothing odd about these. It's just that it's a rite of passage for knitters to make these once they can follow a pattern. And with good reason, it's just about the perfect improvers knit.
