Yes! Giant Knits

Filed under: Sculpture, Threads — norulesnoshame @ 21:42

This is nothing new. Knitting has been getting bigger and bigger, sort of like attitudes and sunglasses. It’s no big shock that it was going to get huge, and now it’s taken over. Completely. Gelitin’s giant pink rabbit on the hillsides of Italy is a favorite among my students (my adult students), and Yokoo’s big knitted necklaces have been on every single blog out there. Every blog. Here are some more big knitters, including Sebastian Schonheit, Bauke Knottnerus, and Christien Meindertsma (and a Giles Deacon giant orange scarf I found online and now covet more than anything I’ve ever coveted before).

See everything ever: http://www.gelitin.net/mambo/index.php?set_albumName=album14&option=com_gallery_proj144&Itemid=91&include=view_album.php
