Knitting camouflage

I just saw this fantastic photo essay in the Guardian on camouflage knitting. Here is the blurb:

“Joseph Ford is a 39-year old photographer from Brighton.  He creates images seamlessly camouflaging people into backgrounds using knitwear made by Nina Dodd.  It can take Dodd, 51, up to 40 hours to knit one item of clothing.”

Here is an example:

Go check these out!  I love them.  You can find them here.

(I also love how the quote specifies that Nina Dodd can spend up to 40 hours on a single item of clothing!  40 hours!  How I wish I could knit that fast!)

This is such a cool idea. Why didn’t I think of it? This is what I want to do when I grow up!

Hint: There is even a knitted camouflage dog outfit.  Resistance is futile.

  1. I saw this doing the rounds and think it is wonderful. Like you, I wondered about the time taken to produce the knitwear, but the end result is fabulous. Not sure I would want to sit on that tiled floor in a lovely white skirt though… 🙂
