I love to knit. I’ve knitted scarves (one I laboured over for my husband…and he never wears! Ok, we live in the desert, but he never wore it when we lived in icey Europe either!), half a hat, a gilet with holes…ok, so I’m not the best. Have you tried?! It’s hard!
So, given my questionable knitting skills, I am in awe of Swedish designer Sandra Backlund. This 3d knitted dress, modelled here by Tilda Swinton, is awesome!
Here are a few more examples of Sandra’s work. I would love to try them on to see what they feel like:
Yes, apparently copper can be knitted! So can bamboo….my colleague at Craft Land was knitting with bamboo yarn yesterday…and not a panda in sight!
I bet this one keeps preditors at bay…
