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) !
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!)
