Friday Inspiration - Leigh Martin's Knitted Fungi

On my walks in the forest at our Oregon farm, I come across some fantastical looking mushrooms - they look like something out of a fairy tale.  I keep meaning to buy a mushroom identification guide, but haven't gotten around to it yet.  I haven't identified this beautiful red one I saw last fall yet so if anyone knows what it is, I'd love to know!

Oklahoma fiber artist Leigh Martin bases her creations on nature - I'm particularly fond of her knitted mushrooms and other fungi.  And the way she photographs them in forested settings is perfect!

You can read more about her knitted mushrooms here and see her very creative blog here.

It's been raining pretty good here for a couple of days so I'm thinking a walk in the forest next week just might turn up some new mushrooms!

Happy Creating!  Deborah


  1. Awesome knitted mushrooms! Your photo looks most like a Russula emetic,

    1. That looks the closest of any picture I've seen - definitely not one to eat, but then the red made that seem likely!

  2. It is with pleasure that I look at your site; it is great. Really nice to read your nice sharing. Continue this and thank you again.
