This project was inspired by the traditional craft of knitting and aims to explore abilities of food in the material context and give ordinary kitchen tools a new purpose. This is a collection of recipes and fun activities that can expand your knowledge and expectations of knit. It can be considered as a game and the only rule is – use all the things that you can find in the kitchen. Be creative!
I experimented with different knitting and braiding techniques using dough to create delicate and eatable knitted pastries.
I used a piping bag with different nozzles to create lacy knitted designs.
You can knit out of almost anything! Pasta and even courgette spaghetti can be used as yarn. Of course, the whole process requires a lot of patience and very delicate hands, but the result with unexpected natural gradient effect due to the quality of the materials, looks fantastic and is 100% worth it.
Using Kitchen Tools to Knit With
It is interesting enough to use food as knitting material, but the rules for this project were to use everything you can find in the kitchen, so, why not to create a knitting loom out something as unexpected as a dish drying rack? And because knitting out of yarn is just too easy, why not use a shower sponge instead?
