The Brooklyn Botanic Garden brought a small exhibit to the conservatory of knit flowers, plants, and vegetables, and some friends and I went to check it out today. It’s called Knit, Purl, Sow and they’re even teaching some beginning knitting classes there too.

It’s just too bad about the lighting of the exhibit, which created some terrifying shadows. If you’re a knitter and heading to the BBG, take a swing through to take a peek! It’s there through January 22, so you have plenty of time.

    Wow! I don’t think I will be able to travel to Brooklyn before those pieces are gone, so thanks for the amazing pics! Seeing incredible fiber art is one of my favorite things to come across.
