The Knit, Purl, Sow art exhibit is comprised of knitted sculptures that will take people's breath away. That is because they take on the form of scientifically accurate plants, flowers and vegetation. Two years in the making, which is impressive considering the sheer size of some of the botanical creations on display, the Knit, Purl, Sow showcases the work of Ruth Marshall and Tatyana Yanishevsky, the latter of whom knitted 19 of the 21 sculptures.

Hosted at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Knit, Purl, Sow art exhibit is set to run until January 22, 2014. Sonal Bhatt, the garden's Vice President of Education and Interpretation, states, "We want the public to appreciate nature another way. I really like the idea of 3-D art and kept looking for the right fall to do it, because knitting doesn't fit into any other season."
