You might think knitting is an old-fashioned hobby that only grandmas can take up. Hate to break it to you, but you couldn't be more mistaken!
See, nowadays, knitting takes completely new shapes and sizes — from yarn bombing the streets to decorating interiors with stylish DIY accessories, to using it as a therapeutic technique and literally knitting the stress away.
A good example of this resurgent craft are the works by Sydney-based fiber artist and a mother of three, Jacqui Fink.
Nope, this is not a remake of 'Alice in Wonderland.' It's just a normal-sized baby sleeping in one of Fink's chunky blankets.
Fink introduces herself as 'a crafter of hand knitted oversized scale textiles and installation works.'
This pic will give you a better sense of what she means by saying 'oversized.'
All of Fink's extreme knitworks are made by hand using naturally colored, high-grade merino roving yarn and wool from Australia and New Zealand.
Her process is slow and requires endurance — after all, Fink's needles are over 3.5 feet long and her creations weigh a minimum of 11 pounds. Moreover, the artist says it takes her about 30 hours to make a standard, 4-x-5.5-foot throw.
