A while ago I saw the knit paintings of goshdarnknit (Rania Hassan) on Poppytalk Handmade (now she's on Etsy).
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22616007
Wow!  But I thought they would look even better if they were more 3-D and mixed media.



Aren't tripods and timers great?  I never would've gotten a picture of myself knitting otherwise.  (That's #10 crochet thread on #1 needles.)



This represents my husband and me.  I love the intertwined cables.  (The inscription that you can barely read says "...knit together as one...Judges 20:11.")



I cut around my hands in the photo and stuck them to the knitting.  The "needles" are bamboo skewers with beads on the ends.





Then I made/gathered little trinkets to attach to the knitting.  I included things that we both like (sushi), individual hobbies (swimming), and some sentimental momentos (a tag from a rosebush he bought me).  Most of them are attached with jump rings.



I wish that I'd had the endurance to knit a longer piece--I had more things I wanted to hang on there.  But those little needles were a strain on my hands after a while.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

This is very special, and I love the 3Dness of it, the combo of photography, knitting and sentimental tiny things.  GREAT job.

This is so cool!  What a great idea to incorporate a picture and fibers into a flowing art.  Well done!
