BIG knitting

Oh, my, I saw these on Christien Meindertsma’s website and my mouth just flew open and then I got a big grin on my face!  I love these giant garter stitch cushions that are called urchin pouf’s.  I so want to see these being made — wait, what am I saying?!  I want to try making these!

As you can see, the needle size is definitely off the charts.  Meindertsma is a young Dutch designer that has an innovative and humorous approach to knitting.  She has a product line called FLOCKS, that as the website says is “a knitwearbrand in the broadest sense of the word.”  She was also a part of an exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum called “Design for a Living World” that highlighted items made from sustainable materials from around the globe.  Go to YouTube and you can hear her thoughts on her work.
