Knit Stools Are Amazing

These playful knit stools from Claire Anne  O’Brien are so amazing, I am not even sure I could bring myself to sit on them. But they’d sure look good in our home. Here’s a little more info…

Inspired by elements of the knitted stitch itself such as rings and loops, the structures are revealed and celebrated through exaggerated scale in bold and textured forms. Lambswool and Sheeps wool, in a mix of hand and machine knit stitches, are constructed into playful statement pieces.

i’ve been eyeing these on pinterest and am so in love. unfortunately my cats would not be able to resist clawing these to death. : (

Good point Kate. My pets would probably ruin them as well. Darn.

how funny would it be to use that shrink wrap grandma’s use on one of these. it might look very ironic – high meets low. : P

kate

AH! Those are SO amazing! Why can’t I think of things like that? And where do you get yarn that big anyways 😉
