Australian Artist Takes Knitting to the Extreme

“Extreme knitting” has officially been coined a thing because of one Australian artist. Jacqui Fink spends her time creating giant masterpieces using super-sized knitting needles and high quality merino wool.

Not only does she have incredible patience and endurance to complete the large throw blankets, but she also makes a living from them. Jacqui sells her creations for up to $1,000 and additionally teaches extreme knitting as a therapy.

You can find more of Jacqui’s work on her website.
