I've been posting what I call quirky knitting projects on my blog since 2010. I'm fascinated by the technical challenges these projects present the knitter and I'm convinced this group of knitters think in a more sculptural fashion than those of us who make garments based on flat pattern drafting designs. I'm not generally interested in spending time on these projects but I keep looking at the boots in the photo. I'm due to clean out my shoe collection soon and if I find an appropriate base I'm tempted to give this project a try. The instructions can be found here.
I had trouble finding a Ravelry page for this version, however I ended up searching by the designers name and found this. It's a slightly different version and links to an unfortunately broken link.
If you'd like to see more quirky knitting projects go here to my index and go down the page to: Quirky Knitting. At the top of the page I also have a category for Art (knitting as art) which you might find interesting.
