Can you imagine the possibilities? It takes lots of dedication and a bit of courage to get yourself out there. But this kind or art is certainly well appreciated out there.

Some of our favorite Knitting and Crochet artists are Olek ( with the car and people above) who creates anything from living spaces to full-on body suits and Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam who has created some jaw-dropping knitted large-scale playgrounds in various parts of the world!
