HUGE knitting! (no, not mine!)

I thought this website might be of interest to some of you out there......

My MIL sent me the link (I think in jest - I have a barely-started scarf from 2 years ago) !

http://www.ingridwagner.com/Art/Knitting/

The woman is based in the UK, but her ideas could be used anywhere by anyone who has knitting skills. She makes wonderful rugs, wall art and HUGE knitting projects using needles the size of BROOM HANDLES! Inspired by her wonderful global travels.

Its truly amazing. I LOVE the rugs! So warm and inviting, perfect for those cold afternoons (she says, currently in 32 degrees!)

I saw this over on ALS, some of those rugs are just stunning. I could sure deal with that in my house. I really do need to learn to knit. Beyond the simple stuff I did as a kid. My nanna had lots of gear but she gave it away to her cleaner :(

hello fellow blue mountains blogger! I'm not sure how I landed here (via another blog I visit I guess!) but thought I'd stop and say hello. That big knitting is wild! We have chooks too (and they destroy our garden as well). That egg is a whopper! Anyway, I'll pop by again sometime soon. bye now. Jacqui
