  • I scrolled through the website and found pictures that would translate into wax resist, knitting and painting possibilities. Thank you for posting this!

  • I’ve used Hubble images for color combinations in my dyeing and weaving. Nature is an inspiration, and a great well for contemplation.

  • Thanks for this stunning source of inspiration. I’ve bookmarked it for future use. Julie Gold’s song, From A Distance, is playing in my head as I look at the images (Nanci Griffith and Bette Midler sang it). Lovely.

  • Off down this rabbit hole! Fantastic.

  • I often look to nature for color combinations, there are beautiful bugs here on earth! Thank you for more stunning pictures! You can never have too much inspiration!

  • I love this and just shared it with my team. It’s like ctr-alt-del for the mind and the spirit.

  • I used the Hadron super collider for color inspiration for a Pi shawl. Thanks for showing this wonderful site.

  • I love this concept, and I resonate with it. A seashell picked up on the beach in North Carolina was the inspiration for a pair of socks for my son-in-law (who had proposed to my daughter on that very beach), and water tumbling over rocks in a mountain stream in the Columbia River gorge made me exclaim “That would be a beautiful cable-knit sweater!” I took a photograph, but that’s as far as I’ve gone. So much to knit, so little time!

  • This is just brilliant. I follow Daily Overview on Instagram and often marvel at how beautiful the most mundane, concrete structures become when seen from above, but it would never have crossed my mind to cast on. Now that I revisit the photos above, I am fantasizing about a lace interpretation of the Beijing airport runways. Thank you so much for the brilliant inspiration! Must order the book now.

  • I’ve been following daily Overview for a while now and have never failed to be intrigued, moved, or totally blown away by the images. I have been collecting a few… for quilt inspiration! An additional interesting overhead photo Instagram account is @anthonyquigley.

  • I can only echo the chorus of appreciation and amazement I just read. What an incredible book, what a way to look at cities, especially (for me), as well as other terrains. Thank you.

  • This is so cool! I too look at things and think “oh, that could be a knit design” but I don’t, y’know, actually DO IT!

  • I love Daily Overview and have often considered images I’ve seen there for color inspiration. Thank you for expanding my thoughts to include actual color work patterns and cables/stitch patterns.

  • Let me start with the knitters’ choices. Glamourie, from Alice and Jade Starmore: to be released in January (I think), but available now for pre-order on Amazon. Also from the Starmores, the 2013 edition of Tudor Roses. And . . . the original edition of Tudor Roses, both editions of Aran Knitting, The Celtic Collection . . . you get the idea.

    I’ll be back with non-knitting selections after I browse my living room.
