Cool right?!  This is the (fantastic!) work of Pierre Le Riche, a freelance artist and designer, and also newly graduated art student from the University of South Africa in Cape Town.  This was his senior exhibit, and he used 10 MILES of yarn for his installation.  I think this work is so incredible and I bet my mind would be blown to see it in person.  Check out the last picture – the yarn is suspending the white railing all around the bottom.  And those knitted football shapes near the ceiling, not to mention all the furniture has been knitted around too.  So cool.  How long do you think it took Pierre to construct the entire thing?  I bet experiencing this installation in person would be even better, but these photographs drew me in right away when I first saw them.  I also emailed back and forth with Pierre to ask permission to use these photos and he’s a super nice guy too.  Go visit his site here to see more photos from this series, here to see more of his fantastic work, and here to read the much more serious message and inspiration behind this seemingly light hearted artform.

And I just realized the rainbow goes perfectly with the St. Patty’s Day theme we’ve been covering this week…right?  Like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?  Just go with it.
