My Knitted Boyfriend: Because Everyone Gets Lonely Sometimes

by Noortje de Keijzer

May 4, 2013

‘My Knitted Boyfriend’ comes with knitted accessories like mustaches, beards, glasses, watches, tattoos and bow-ties—because we all have different preferences when it comes to our men. I also created an illustrated book that acts as a manual for ‘My Knitted Boyfriend’ and a short film to expresses the concept of this project.

I did not make this project to provide a serious solution. Of course I understand that everyone needs to solve the feeling of loneliness for him—or her—self. But I do hope that my project brings some recognition, and awareness that everybody feels lonely from time to time, and that it's fine to talk about it, or even laugh about it. Basically, I tried to make a humorous project about a serious subject. I believe that laughing about a negative feeling is already the beginning of a more positive feeling. When you feel positive and happy on your own, the right person will come along in the end.

If you would like to know more about ‘My Knitted Boyfriend’, please have a look on my website or Facebook page ‘Studio Noortje’. I’m still busy developing the ‘My Knitted Boyfriend’ project and I would love to keep you updated.
