Dave Cole-The Knitting Machine

At Monday Night Knit at the Three Dollar Bill Cafe we were talking about Dave Cole, the artist who knitted a giant flag using telephone poles as knitting needles.  He does some really extreme, incredible stuff: teddy bears from lead and fiberglass, a baby blanket from spun porcelin, a bullet proof sweater knit from kevlar.

He was also featured in an article at knitty.com http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/FEATsum05WTS.html
