Brutal knitting. Think it will catch on?
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Design features here.
OK, I know I featured knitted coral the other week but these are too brilliant not to show you.
You can’t help but wonder what inspires someone to give over their free time to knitting woollen monster masks.
Tracy Widess, the self-proclaimed ‘Brutal knitter’, has a couple of things I want. Talent, for one. And spare time. Jesus, where does she find the hours to do this stuff?! And why isn’t she doing something vaguely hair-shirty like teaching herself GCSE Italian? Going to pottery class? Trying to salsa with men 15 years younger than herself (now that’s an idea…).
See her work, and get in contact here.
