Knitter’s Flash Mob

q~Highlighting flash mobs a few times, I immediately clicked on the flash mob link my spinning class teacher sent to us. This is a unique, flash mob twist. The flash mob was featured on the Knitty blog.

“Since 1955, Loes Veenstra knitted over 500 sweaters and stored them in her home on the 2nd Carnissestraat in Rotterdam. The sweaters have never been worn. Until today.

The sweaters are all presented in a book called “Het Verzameld Breiwerk van Loes Veenstra uit de 2e Carnissestraat” designed by Christien Meindertsma, published by Stichting Kunstimplantaat.
To order the book go to:

Original song: “Happy together” by The Turtles”

My question is: “Why would anyone knit sweaters and not gift them?”
