Guest blogger series: Knit hacker food

Thanks so much to Danielle Holke from Knithacker who is joining us at Whipup today. Danielle is a digital provocateur for money by day, a resin-based jewellery maker by night and the curator of 24/7 – because the knitting never stops!

The best thing about has to be all the fascinating and curious food-inspired “knithacks” I come across. For your reference, I consider a “knithack” any non-traditional knitting or crochet (felted items count too) – could be two patterns mashed together or a project that uses fiber to make something not usually made with fiber, e.g. this knitted thyroid by Ben Cuevas.

Since launching 2008, a week has not gone by without one or two funny and inspired food-related knithacks. Here are my favourite six … with a bonus pattern at the end! It was hard to choose – there are so many good ones!

The mini-banana reminds me of the tiny series from Anna at Mochimochi Land. She has done a tiny cheeseburger and tiny corn among others. They are adorable!

I love the skelly fish and also crocheted it for a few years.
By the way, the pattern is from Elisabeth Doherty. I love her stuff so much!!

These are darling. I especially like the skelly fish and the sushi. I have passed this on to my daughter who loves to knit animals for her three girls.
