Dream Day – Knitted Masterpieces

This has nothing to do with stained glass, but I find it completely fun and inspiring.  These people have recreated famous works of art by KNITTING them!  How crazy is that! Their works of art look amazing, too.    Here are some of my favourites:

Seated Woman in Garden by Pablo Picasso, knitted by Sue McBride. Inset: Picasso's Femme Assise Dans un JardinThe Scream by Edvard Munch, knitted by Norma Box. Inset: one of several versions of the famous picture by MunchSunflowers by Vincent van Gogh, knitted by Margaret Hamilton and Margaret Murray. Inset: one of van Gogh's Sunflower paintingsA knitted artwork of The Kiss, with the original Gustav Klimt paintingA Stained Glass Window by Rennie Mackintosh, knitted by Jean Brodie. Inset: a similar Mackintosh windowHokusai's The Great Wave, knitted by Sylvia West, Susan Davies and Tim West. Inset: the original woodblock print
