not just for scarves anymore.

I often wonder if there is more to knitting than just hats and scarves. And since I'm not the most anal knitter, I often lose interest in taking gauge and blocking, which should explain the outcome of many of my projects. Lately, I've discovered more and more artists that are taking this craft and exploring what else can be done. The above image was taken at Diamond Hill, in Connemara National Park, Ireland (from here). I love the idea of knitting becoming a sort of Andy Goldsworthy installation piece.

Then there's the idea of knitting as urban graffiti. All images below are from Masquerade, a Swiss group of renegade knitters.
