Knit Yourself A Home

Technically I don’t think this home would be very water-proof (or warm; despite the knitting factor) but this house is so cool I had to share for those of you who haven’t seen it.

Love the flowers!

This home, knitted for the 2006 London Architecture Biennale was created by a group of women who enlisted the help of friends and family.

      o.k..I love that. You could change the WHOLE look of your house by just draping different knitted throws over it. A cottage, a castle, a manor house..the possibilities are endless.

      You know I never even though of that. But you’re right. Who needs a new coat of paint when a shawl will do just fine! You could have a hat with tassels for winter. Good idea you.

      It’s the world’s largest teacosy! LOL!

      Actually, I was expecting to see a yurt when I clicked the link on ‘fabric houses’. There’s nothing like getting a jolt of whimsy!
