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.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

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!

Thanks everybody!  
It's nice to get feedback on things I've done.  I'd even appreciate an "I think it would be better if you..." kind of comment.  It's great to have such a community where we can bounce ideas off each other and make our crafts even better.

Wheee!!!
I am so thrilled with how well I did in the contest!  I figured I wouldn't actually win, what with all the great entries like thebeesknees'.  But fifth out of 32 is pretty darn good!  (Yes, I counted.)  Thanks everybody!

The creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person.
