10/01 Pinterest Pin(s) of the Week: Yarn Arts

by Pennie on October 1, 2013

Just because this (below) was the first thing that popped up on my Pinterest window today, it seemed like a good time to do a post on interesting yarn art projects that I’ve seen.

I have to say, this is actually lovely and looks like it would be quite comfy, but I can’t imagine the mindset of the person who would want to take on such a project.  I don’t know, maybe it would be quick & easy, but it just doesn’t seem like it to me.  The pattern is from Simple Knits with a Twist: Unique Projects for Creative Knitters by Erika Knight which can be found on Amazon.


Now I’m a curvy gal, so this would never do for me.  And really it seems a tad too warm for a beach coverup.  But maybe with a pair of nice tailored pants and the right shoes on a tall, trim person it would be a great look. This is from Knit the Future:

ElvisI wish I knew where this came from, I’ve seen it all over but never gotten to the person who claimed it.  FULL BODY SWEATER SUIT!

MermaidI really don’t know what to say about this one.  It’s from Strange Knitting Projects on  It actually kind of freaks me out.

Strange-Knitting-Projects-01Being the geek and longtime Trekie that I am I appreciate this next item, though still on the edge.  From Yarn Songs – The Patterns: Spock Ears!

S(p)ock - ModelledFrom Live Journal, Ms. Crafty Galore is very concerned about the health and well-being of her pumpkins sitting outside in the cold. So of course she created a Pumpkin Sweater.


Well on that happy note, I will end for today, sending you out to search for your own interesting projects on the most time consuming website in my universe: Pinterest!

Now these are some pretty strange items! The little mermaid is pretty cute though!

OMGoodness…I am in love with that little mermaid get-up, and for some reason, I am attracted to that sweater-looking recliner covering in the first picture.

i love the mermaid, i would guess for someone that loves to work with yarn, it would not be a big deal to do.
