It's unlikely anyone would line up to watch a crochet artist at work. But this 30 second stop motion film by artist Jo Hamilton turns the quiet craft she learned from her grandmother into something thrilling. Hamilton -- who is known for her blanket-sized portraits of famous people and friends -- filmed more than 300 photos for the video, each taken after the addition of a new yarn color to her portrait of her late friend Arthur Cheesman. Her habit of working from the eyes out here creates the sensation of a fully formed man slowly revealing himself, which is as eerie as it sounds. Don't expect to find half-done Arthur hanging on your grandma's wall any time soon.
