Knit Me A New Life

Does anyone else love knitting as much as I do? I am by no means an advanced knitting champion, but I can knit up a mean scarf or cardigan when I need to. My mom recently came back from Maine with three balls of alpaca wool. I ❤ it. It’s incredibly soft and smells like mother nature’s armpits. The balls are relatively small, so a scarf will be made from them. Pictures will come later.

In the mean time…I’ve become obsessed with finding knit things made by people obsessed with knitting on the interwebs:

tree-sweatersNot sure if this is done by the same girl. But I really wanna go knit tree sweaters now.

il_430xN.48179304Yes, someone did in fact knit a dead rat, mid-dissection.

Isn’t that fucking cool? Who would think to knit that? I’m just sorry I didn’t!

 

knit_ferrari2A grad student at some “fancy, shmancy” art school, knit a Ferrari LIFE SIZE!! It would really have made my day to see the sheen on the windows knit in, but hey…this bitch knit a fucking Ferrari.

 

moto_de_crocheTheresa Honeywell is the maker of this motorcycle cozy. She makes some badass knit objects: knit machine gun, knit jack hammer, knit screwdriver cozy, knit tool belt with knit tools. She also makes these sweet lace tattoos. Check it out.

You guys like knit food? Well that will happen later on in the week. (It’s god damn amazing how much knit food there is out there that people have made). For now, here are some cupcakes with icing made to look like knitting materials! Enjoy!
