Once, during a paralyzingly cold winter, you decided to take up knitting. You bought a soft ball of yarn and a pair of needles and plopped down on your couch with the lofty goal of making a skull cap with ear flaps. But half-way through your project, the cat got the yarn, the snow melted, and your partially-completed hat is still in your closet. At least now that you’ve tried, you have fresh admiration for those who pull it off.
Emiliano Godoy  is in a class of knitters all his own. He took the homely craft to a knew level by knitting a chair. At the 2005 International Furniture Design Fair Asahikawa (IFDA)  in Japan in June, Godoy’s  Knit Chair was awarded a bronze leaf.
All forty-three of the IFDA award winners is worthy of a special mention. If you have a moment, check out the awe-inspiring photos at the IFDA  website.
