I’m not sure whether to NOM or SNUGGLE but either way
I love seeing cuddly, delicate, well rendered, beautiful VEGETABLES: I feel like making them precious makes us reconsider our relationship to the original object. And this here actually IS how I feel about the vegetables I grow in my garden, and hence, the way I feel about vegetables in general.
Nature enthusiast and fibre artist Leigh Martin has been hard at work on an awesome project entitled 52 Forms of Fungi for which she is knitting beautiful and impressively realistic pieces of fungi each week. They look particularly wonderful photographed in natural settings.
“It’s no secret that I have an affinity for fungi, and that I am also a slightly obsessed knitter. I’ve decided to challenge myself this year (because after all, what is the New Year for if not for challenges) to take my favorite combo (knitting and fungi) to the next level by knitting 52 different forms of fungi in 2013.”
Taking pictures of your own feet is hard, guys. But look, a pair of socks! (Wow, another one, Emma? How many pairs of socks have you made yourself? (IT’S A LOT OKAY I LIKE SOCKS))
Pattern: Paraphernalia. Pretty cables! Sizing for different foot lengths! I like this pattern, you guys.
Yarn: Gorgeous hand-dyed Sundara Sock in a limited edition colorway a while ago called Perfect Fit. Sundara’s usually out of my price range but I snapped a skein of this up on sale and unfff, you guys. Warm, complex browns are the best and I love them.
Modifications: shockingly none???? I just really like this pattern!
