Wooly Food Art

Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well.  I know many of you knit or crochet in addition to quilt!  So I thought Kate Jenkin’s (from Brighton, UK) wooly works of art might tickle your fancy.

Here you see her knitted fish and chips dinner.

So, I am curious how many of you knit/crochet.  I can work a tapestry needle, but I am a total klutz when it comes to knitting or crochet.

Thanks for stopping by.  I shall chat with you again tomorrow.

  1. This is amazing, I knit, crochet and have done needlepoint, hand embroidery but I still would love to learn how to do stump work. I have a friend who has done some great stump work so far I have only bought the book.;).

  2. I used to crochet in high school (a VERY long time ago). I learned to knit in the ’80’s when I traveled a lot for work. It kept my hands busy in the hotel room at night so I would not snack too mich while watching TV. A decade or so later I had 2 knitting machines! Then I found quilting and that was the end of knitting!

  3. i learned to crochet very young at my grandmother’s knee. it’s near and dear to my heart, but i don’t do as much of it now as i used to. my wrists can’t really handle it. never got the hang of knitting but wish i had because i would love to knit some of these neat sock patterns i see.

  4. I do knit and crochet but not alot. Garment sewing was for years what I enjoyed but when my grandchildren got older I started learning how to quilt. I had a good friend who had the same thing happen but she had nothing else that she had learned to love before her grandchildren no longer wanted the clothes she could make. For years, I’ve watched Fons and Porter, Sue Hausman and others; so I decided I wasn’t going to be like my friend.

  5. I do knit, crochet, counted cross stitch, hardanger, needlepoint, rug hooking, needlefelting……and on, and on……And I have all the stuff, er, I mean supplies to prove it! Now if I had a larger house………LOL!

  6. *swoon* Love it! I knit and crochet, not a great knitter but I can crochet anything. I used to make afghans with fishermen’s crochet, you know, the cables and popcorns and all. Someday I’ll be a better knitter!

  7. I like to knit and crochet simple items. I used to do more intricate things. It is a good pastime activity on long car trips.

  8. I can knit and crochet in straight lines. I can’t follow directions, delete or add stitches, and heaven help me if I drop a stitch. I’ll stick with quilting! These are so cute, but the stories on the side bar are awful! I’d rather look at your quilts.
    Best regards.

    • I know what you mean about the side bar stories. I don’t ever click on those. I do like that Daily Mail often features historical articles, or preview of upcoming books on history. That’s why I visit their news site every so often.

      Thanks for popping by.
