Knitting Fences

Anne loves lace knitting, and how better to express that affection than by completely wrapping one’s garden up in Shetland lace? The fence is fashioned from strong black twine (the same kind that is used to make fishing nets) and Anne knitted it up on specially adapted curtain poles. It took her about three weeks to knit enough lace to surround her front garden, using a 23 stitch repeat of a familiar Shetland lace pattern.

Wow! Neat.  If you gave her enough steel wool, could she knit a stove? Or a suit of armor? :lol:

I saw that back in the 60s, in a Donald Duck comic book.

Granny Beagle (that's her in the middle) had knitted the Beagle Boys bulletproof vests out of steel wool.

She'd have to use a cable stitch.  :D
