This is just amazing.  Probably a little too wild for me, but certainly arty and creative, so I can appreciate it!  What about you? Would you wear something this ‘out there’?

knitted blanket 2012 by amona on Flickr
Here’s what she said about the process - what an artist - I’m inspired! 

Knitted Blanket 2012
Raw fleece: 3 days to wash and dry; about 2-3 years to hand-card the wool and spin on a Turkish drop-spindle; at least two 5-10 day sessions of natural dyeing; another 2 weeks skeining the wool; 7 months to knit the blanket; one afternoon to machine wash and “full” (shrinking process to make it more durable); 5 minute photo shoot; priceless.
