Have you seen anything like this?!? Inger Carina, a Swedish artist who studied at the Konstfack (otherwise known as, the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design) in Stockholm, has created some incredibly beautiful crocheted weaponry. In fact, Carina has designed two crochet guns, gun holsters, and a belt with a classic-styled buckle to match.  I must admit that I am amazed at the delicate beauty and remarkable detail of her 3-dimensional designs, although the subject matter was a wee bit shocking at first. Apparently she achieved these using filet crochet techniques and sugar water.

Three cheers for Inger, who made me think outside the “crochet box” today! FYI, she doesn’t much care for guns either.
