Knitting large

Look at these fantastic hand knitted pieces by Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam!!!. It is in the "sculpture forest" at the Hokone Open-Air Museum in Japan. This huge brightly coloured net hangs in the middle of a wooden pavillion. Children can climb on top of the netting and swing on the knitted balls that hang underneath the structure. Promoted as, 'a fun way for kids to develop their sense of balance and appreciation of colours'- but also a hugely inspirational piece of knitting!!!!

Making Daisy Chains

As a crochet beginner, my hooking skills are very slow but I have been enjoying making these daisy chains- and after 320 daisies I can even manage it now without constantly looking at the pattern!! The pattern is from Lia Govers and is available at Ravelry
Thank you Lia!!
