52 Forms of Funghi (aka: a year of knitted mushrooms)

8 Apr

There’s only one thing I like more than a good photo project. And that’s a knitted photo project! Fibre artist Leigh Martin from Oklahoma is on a mission to yarn bomb trees with knitted mushrooms. One species every week for a year. Brilliant right!?

I’m definitely going to be following the progress of this mycological adventure …and if you’re wondering (as I was) how on earth such an idea comes about, read Leigh’s mission statement for a full explanation.

    on quick glance, you wouldn’t even notice the smaller ones were knit. Thanks for posting these, they are a great spin on yarn bombing.
