We're gonna need bigger needles

Sometimes stunt knitting is about complexity. Sometimes it is about size, both very small or very large. In the case of Dutch designer Christien Meindertsma, who is knitting sort of updated bean bag chairs, the size is very large. I'm not sure what size those needles are. 50s? 100s? And we won't begin to take guesses about the yarn, which she sources from New Zealand. She has a strong interest in the origin of things, and also in the environment.

To see pictures of the finished urchin pouf chairs (garter stitch in naturally-dyed colors) and to read more about her work, follow this link. You can also see more of her work on her own website www.christienmeindertsma.com/, especially in the "Projects" section.
