Christien Meinderstma creating her big knits

I think I’ve mentioned my obsession with chunky knits before, and if I could hire one person to cover my entire house in her designs, I would choose Christien Meinderstma in a heartbeat.

These images are from a project she completed for the Nature Conservancy using wool from an organic flock of sheep raised in Idaho. Aren’t those hexagonal knitted patterns incredible? I love how exaggerated the textures become when rendered in such thick yarn.
