There's Something Behind My Sofa...

I've been preparing for my summer of teaching knitting by scavenging the internet for all kinds of knitting and crochet patterns. I'm definitely drawn to all things ridiculous and amigurumi. This sofa project, from Knitting Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec, made me realize that I really love projects that are relatively complicated and have lots of bits and parts. I love the way it all comes together in the end.  I've also been working on getting better at photography.  And it turns out that knitting and photography compliment each other as hobbies!

  1. I want to see mini leather lounges Perth but I am not good in sewing. That knitted sofa looks really cute and I thought it was real because you took good angles of it.

  2. I also did think it was real, and that "something behind" the sofa was just a design! Nice knitting skills and photo angles! I wish I could knit a huge sofa cover like that, but since the material is a dust magnet, I might regularly call the upholstery cleaning team to maintain it!

  3. Maintenance of that knitted sofa must be done at least once a week because it is prone from acquiring dust. A good cleaning material will be needed for that kind of job.

  4. Knitting was my hobby before but I got bored of it. Now I am going to try knitting again. Can you provide a tutorial for this?

  5. Good use of creativity. The uniqueness of your idea is what sets your sofa apart from others. Your post has been around, so I am assuming that a number of people had mimic this idea.

  6. Right now, I’m wishing that this sofa is a real life-sized sofa, so I can buy it and place it in our lounge at the basement. It looks cozy it's soft and covered with wool!

  7. I like how this works playfully. Now all that's left is to make a life-size sofa with this knitting as an inspiration; that would be a great addition to the family room!

  8. Nice idea with the sofa. I wish we had one like that back home (life-size one, of course, plus the tentacles), and the tentacles can be movable too, so you can prank your friends.

  9. Talk about a cute (and slightly scary) idea for a table ornament. I wonder if there are other versions available; they're good add-ons to the new coffee table.
