Yarn Burger by Martina

Martina Sorbara recently sent us this page featuring her knitted “Yarn Burger”:

She writes:

“I Had been thinking about making a knitted Hamburger for a longtime. So halfway through our North American tour I pulled the trigger and bought the yarn i needed to make all my wildest yarn burger dreams come true.

God knows I’d looked at enough hamburgers on the road; TV adverts, billboards and disappointing menus from coast to coast. But thats when I started to look at them differently, study them and think about how I would execute the toppings and such.

The tomato gave me the most trouble (with a whopping 5 restarts).

The best part about the Yarn Burger is that it is made of stuffed animal meat. In the morning before we left Denver for Kansas City, I decided to try and find a craft store for some stuffing. Having had no luck, I walked into a TJmax, bought a stuffed cow toy, and proceeded to disembowel it.

I’m a vegetarian.”

Great work Martina!  I will definitely need to try something like this for the Burger365 project and can only hope it will look as good.  (Having never knitted before, I doubt it.)  THANKS!

Burger #128 – Sand Castle

Beach Burger Babylon…

Perhaps the last weekend for the beach this year ended with this Burger “Sand Castle” result.  It seemed like summer never really started here in LA, but had to make the most of it.  Here’s hoping that your burgers don’t taste like sand.  ([])
