Nature enthusiast and fibre artist Leigh Martin has been hard at work on an awesome project entitled 52 Forms of Fungi for which she is knitting beautiful and impressively realistic pieces of fungi each week. They look particularly wonderful photographed in natural settings.

“It’s no secret that I have an affinity for fungi, and that I am also a slightly obsessed knitter. I’ve decided to challenge myself this year (because after all, what is the New Year for if not for challenges) to take my favorite combo (knitting and fungi) to the next level by knitting 52 different forms of fungi in 2013.”
