As part of the Amazing Space event Somerset House, England, participants produced a knitted house. Passers-by were encouraged to participate in it’s construction and were provided rocking chairs and various sundry materials to knit with, including nylon cord, grocery bags, duct tape and more, as well as broom sticks or any other large object to effect knitting needles. Awesome!!! The link is here, and displays 2 photo galleries of the project’s progression, a list of participants with bio’s and, you guessed it, a pattern, so you may make your very own.
Here, workers create knitted flowers for the window box. My favorite are the pom-pom mums. Ingenious!
I showed my photo of the finished architectural wonder to my daughter, Katie. Her eyes widened as she held the picture closer for a more detailed inspection and exclaimed, “Is that a knitted house?! You people are crazy!
