knit 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 knithacker.com 24/7 – because the knitting never stops!

The best thing about knithacker.com 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!
