knitted gardens

this is by far, one of the most exquisite uses of knitting that i have ever seen.  what a lovely and inspired idea!  jan messent is simply brilliant.

oh how i would LOVE a big, knitted blanket like that for miss elinor to sit and play on.  i mean, what little girl doesn't want her very own garden in her room?  plus, no pruning or maintenance required!  ideal in case she is "blessed" with her mama's green thumb.  kill-proof foliage and blossoms?  now that is my kind of garden.

is that not the best-est thing you have ever beheld?  good gracious.
