Knitted Dead Animals (Knitting for Psychos)

Posted by: admin In: Art News Blog

When I think of knitting I don’t think of unicorns stabbing teddy bears and rabbits with carrots sticking out of them, but obviously someone does. A friend let me know about these disturbing little creations after she saw the roadkill toys. I couldn’t find out who created them either, so I’ll just link to the Flickr page here. It’s called Knitting for Psychos.

I have previously mentioned Jafabrit’s knitted poo too, which I thought was funny.. and a great idea for an exhibition invite.

Also, here’s some disturbing videos advertising the Roadkill plush toys in the UK. I found myself feeling guilty for laughing at them. I promise I won’t mention the death of cute little furry creatures again for at least a few months!
