I read about this art student in my knitting magazine and decided to check her out on the Crafts Scotland site here:

http://www.craftscotland.org/JennyMcHardy.html

Her name is Jenny McHardy and she has produced some interesting pieces. i love the incorporation of metal objects in her knitting. I have a self-made studded neckpiece in a satiny fabric from the 80s when I was a teenager and didn't know any better. It was easier to buy studs in those days from Kensington Market (aaah, those were the days). I was thinking of extracting said studs and incorporating them into a knitted piece. This woman's work gives me some inspiration even though she's probably half my age  Huh

What do you guys think of her work?

BTW I can't remember whether it's her or the knitted Ferrari woman doing a Masters degree in knitting, but an MA in Knitting?Huh There's progressive.

Oops!! She's 29 so not quite half my age but old enough to be my much younger sister!!
