This man knits jumpers of places and then goes to those places wearing the jumpers

Artistic Knitting of Sam Barsky

To say Sam Barsky is good at knitting is an understatement of grave proportions.

The award-winning artist from Baltimore, Maryland has taken the internet by storm with his charming jumper designs – inspired by the scenic places he traverses.

Barsky hand-knits famed landmarks and places – and then visits them and takes a picture wearing the jumper.

For Barsky, what began as nothing more than an interesting hobby in 2000 turned into a way of life.

He told Mashable:
