A knitted room


Residents of Strathaven Home for the Elderly in Hobart, Tasmania decided to create a 1950s living room in which everything — the window, the rural view out the window, the plants, an umbrella, the cups and saucers, a GE radio, Wellington boots, even an Elvis album half-out of its sleeve, is knitted.


It's called The Knitting Room.


Residents gather once a week to create whatever additions strike their fancy.


If it were in New York or LA instead of Tasmania, this room would fill a gallery and the show would sell out.

Awesome stuff.


The ABC Tasmania website even has an interview with some of the knitters.

I think I'm strangely in love with the odd variety of cups you find.
