Italian Yarn Sculpture – Simply Awesome

In, 2007, the Filpucci yarn company in Italy  celebrated their 40th anniversary with a dinner at the glorious Pitti Palace in Florence. One of the centerpieces of the event was a long table laden with trompe l’oeil sculptures made from their wonderful yarns. More pictures and story at link below, where a pattern for a knitted wedding cake can also be found. (I don’t think I’ll be making this one…)
