Loving Phat Knits

Thanks for all the great comments on the Postmodern Granny. I do see what you mean... it is still fabulous regardless of its 'fakery'. But for me, my kids actually summed it up by quoting Mighty Boosh "Elements from the past and the future, combining to form something not quite as good as either!"

Anyway.... a new find for you. Something I think is totally fantabulous... Phat Knits.



Now this is what I call innovative and exciting... I guess it's still 'elements from the past and the future' but I think it really works. Gigantic knittery... I want! :)


They were specially created by artist Bauke Knottnerus (I have a feeling there's a pun in there somewhere!) for the Unravel exhibition at the MoMu Fashion Museum in Antwerp, which runs until 14th August this year.


Can't you just see yourself lazing around on this?... oh and having the kids dive bomb you every five seconds of course... maybe I don't want it after all! ;)

And just imagine the size of the sheep that produced the yarn and the size of the spinning wheel it was spun on!!!!!!!!

Your girls are very clever and I agree with them.
As for the phat knits, they are fabulous! I love anything that makes me smile and how can you not help but smile....
Btw, I always enjoy the music tracks on your site and sometimes I linger here to listen to the advice: Do one thing that scares you every day! Remember compliments you receive and forget the insults! Your choices are half chance!

oh yes! giant knitting rocks! I would like a lounge like that. Or a rug. Or a GIANT HAMMOCK between two skyscrapers. Yes.
