some people will knit anything!!!!!!
HERE’S a sports car you could pullover very smartly in — a Ferrari knitted from WOOL.
Art student Lauren Porter spent ten months making the full-size replica using 12 MILES of yarn.
The car, a cross between a Testarossa and a 355, is made of more than 250 squares over a steel frame and the horse badge is hand-embroidered.
I am so impressed with this feat that I might go ahead and knit that digestive tract I was eyeing a few months ago. The pattern is straight-forward and the results would be humorous. But a Ferrari!!!! Hats' off to this ambitious girl.
Summer is just around the corner, and final projects are due next week, so I am hoping for some great pics of the completed sweaters and things from the kids.
Check back in a few days for more.
Don't forget the bolero jacket class is tonight. 6:30 at Yarn Garden in Studio City. See you there.
