Marie-dessine. Grow a beard with a knitted cap. If you want to make your friends smile but at the same time keep warm in the cold winter times you should consider getting one of these knitted “beard caps”. They can be joyful for everyone whether on a ski vacation with family or a fun day out in the cold with friends. They come in different shapes and colors so it’s a lot to choose from, but one thing is sure – you will never have a cold chin and lip again.

Speaking of knitting, this artist has taken it to a whole new level by knitting and sewing sculptures. Masculine sculptures made by using feminine techniques. This unusual artwork is made by talented artist Nathan Vincent. He uses techniques which are usually identified as feminine, such as knitting, crocheting, sewing, and applique to create objects which are typically identified with men ; a deer head trophy, beer bottles and guns. Nathan said he gets inspiration from New York City sidewalks, bars, galleries and catwalks. He said he learn how to knit from a book at the age of 10. His artwork can be seen at exhibitions across United States. If you liked this you should check out how another artist is making face figures out of pile of clothes. Would you eat “knitted” steak for dinner? For the first time ever in a butchery, no animals were harmed, and we can thank designer Clemence Joly for that.

She has made all the pieces of meat that you find at the butchery in wool; the steak, the sausages, the pig’s head with an apple in its mouth, roasts and other meat specialties. Her “wool meat” was exhibited in a window of the gallery “Fabrications” at the Broadway Market in London. This was part of her final degree project in Communication Design, and she surely made it in an interesting way. Others have also used knitting to express their art, like this talented artist who has made several sculptures out of wool.

Realistic Crocheted Portraits By Jo Hamilton

Her formative training at the Glasgow School of Art was in painting and drawing but, by her own admission, she was never entirely comfortable with the traditional approach. “My house is filled with balls of yarn, all arranged by colour on shelves. I can pull them out as I need them for my palate. A portrait can take anything up to forty or fifty hours, but I haven’t actually counted, and I spend just as much time looking as actually crocheting. The pieces evolve from the inside out. Her method of working is more like a painter with their box of paints than a person taking out their crochet for a few hours of relaxation. Website: Johamiltonart.
