From Sally — Sometimes I Think I Have No Imagination

Filed under: Uncategorized — surly @ 9:56 am

No, I don’t live over at youtube. I really don’t. I have friends who send me links that they think I’ll find of interest. This one involving “animated” pieces of knitting is simply amazing.


  1. I’ve posted this one on my blog this morning, too. Truly amazing.

  2. Whoa – that is unreal!
    I wondered upon viewing if there weren’t some kind of manipulation involved. Wondered if perhaps each piece weren’t knit entirely, but perhaps altered in digital imaging somehow. The last few clips, however, show numbers in the 700s written on the bottom. Maybe it’s real – and each piece was knit separately.
    It would be interesting to know how they did that.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. From Susan — I think they used a large piece/pieces of white knitting and then drew the characters on with black ink, creating each frame separately, but by drawing them. If you look closely, the black “sts” don’t look like real sts.  Still, a ton of creativity and work!!

  5. I was so intrigued by this video that I did a little Googling and found out that this is a video for the Quebec band Tricot Machine ( using panels knit by the designer Lysanne Latulippe. She has her own label, Majolie ( The piece is called Les peaux de lièvres. Beautiful!

  7. If they knitted the swatches and “painted” the black stitches on them later, they still knitted 700+ white swatches! Even if you had 100 friends to help you, that’s at least 7 *boring* white stockinette swatches per friend. It’s quite an amazing feat! Thanks for posting the link. It enjoyed it.

    (I hope the designer was paid well for her work…)
