When she’s not making yarn clones of her son, knitter Marieke Voorsluijs crafts up some serious whimsy.
Voorsluijs, along with co-founder Barbara Lohnen, owns a Dutch knitting supply store called Club Geluk. The two wool experts have knitted everyday objects into beautiful still lifes.
As you might expect from a woman who’d knit a doppelgänger of her own son, the items in each still life create a quirky juxtaposition — for example, a burger sitting next to a saw cutting a log.
What makes the project especially great is how the two knitters capture even the smallest object, like a cocktail umbrella. This is an impressive feat that was obviously time-consuming.
