big knits

This is Christien Meindertsma.

This is her giant knitwork.

I am very fond of them, and of her for that matter.

I just found this picture via {the style files}.

“According to The Style Files, the exhibit aims to tell a unique story about the life-cycle of materials and the power of conservation and design. Christien used wool sourced from a sustainable sheep ranch in Idaho to create a large scale knit rug a “flock” of smaller components, each one made from 3.5 pounds of wool, the yield of a single sheep. Then she sewed them all together to make one giant rug.
