Knitting Porn

Knitting and yarn are both visual media.  I love a good photo (or artwork) depicting knitting and yarn.  I use my Instagram account to feed my knitting porn habit.  If you are on Instagram (if you are not, I recommend it) and if you are a yarn and knitting voyeur, consider checking out these accounts:

  • Knitboy1 - Beautiful, artful photographs of male models with yarn and/or knitting.  Warning: the models are in various states of undress so may not be safe for work
  • WillaShalit - beautiful photos of her own knitting projects that are presented in a way that the beauty of her work really shows
  • Knit_Play - this account also belongs to WillaShalit. This Instagram feed focuses on her gauge swatches and experiments with different stitch patterns. 
  • YarnHarlot - no explanation needed.  Also, I highly recommend every one of her books. 
  • AndreaRknits - this is the Instagram account of Andrea Rangel, knitwear designer.  Her photos are lovely and she gives lots of sneak peeks of what she is working on.  
  • SkeinCocaine - Ebabler Alert: you can actually buy yarn from SkeinCocaine on Instagram.  They have regular auctions on their Instagram feed. I have personally never purchased anything on Instagram, but consider yourself warned - your yarn budget may be in danger.
I follow about 200 other Instagram users, but these are a few of my favourites.  You can follow me on Instagram too.  I try to post yarn and knitting porn regularly. 

Do you have any favourite yarn/knitting Instagram accounts that you follow?  I would love to check them out.
