Astounding Knits....

Recently I was lucky enough to win a copy of Lela Nargi's Astounding Knits! 101 Spectacular Knitted Creations and Daring Feats.

This book is fabulous and such inspiration for me who loves all things quirky and has ambitions of one day doing just such things. The odd knitting not the book writing :-)

Want to see what's in the book?

Head over to Lela's blog and here to the books blog that she has set up as a taste of some of the brilliant creativity she has featured in her book.

Here are a couple of animated films that have been made featuring knitting.... Brilliant! And the amount of work that must have gone into making these, the mind boggles!


  1. Gotta say the first one was a little dark but both are technically brilliant! Human creativity never ceases to serve us endless wonders to enjoy.

    Congratulations on the win. If anyone can do this book justice it's you Jenni.

  2. I found a SUPER bit of crochet at the RenFest we went to yesterday - I'll show you.

  3. By the way - since we're a recording studio, that second vid was AMAZING. They did a super job of knitting that set. Amazing. The guts part - well, yuck. But it was really amazing.

  4. Incredible makes from incredible minds, methinks............ Thanks Jenni for this post as I found myself thoroughly enjoying the links.

  5. Arrrrgh! My computer is being stupid and won't let me pull up any videos at the moment.

    Hurrah though for winning!

  6. Wow, Awesome videos!! your new book sounds fabulous!!


Thanks for visiting my space and leaving a makes my day :-)
