Knitting Art

The wise one's boss (Mum), has always been a skilled knitter. I still harbour fond memories of favourite jumpers lovingly crafted by her needles. We wore them almost to the point of destruction. She's also pretty nifty with a crochet hook. One of her colourful crocheted blankets lives in our airing cupboard, ready to spring into comforting action whenever one of us is poorly. A snuggle in that blanket almost feels like she's giving us a hug, even though she lives some distance away.
But I suspect even she might draw the line at some of the creations on display in the Telegraph gallery today. Polish artist Olek takes crochet to a whole new level, knitting garments for statues, vehicles and even an entire house. I'm not entirely sure why.
It's all clever stuff, but I reckon she could learn a thing or two about design from the wise one's boss.
