Your New Travel Hero Is A Guy Who Knits Jumpers Of Famous Landmarks

You've gotta see him rock a Stonehenge jumper at Stonehenge.

Sometimes taking a photo isn’t enough. To truly immortalise a destination, you have to get a little creative. Enter Sam Barsky, your new (knitting) hero.

Sam is an artist from Baltimore with a particular affinity for knitting. But instead of knitting plain ol’ scarves and beanies, he’s got a knack for jumpers. Incredibly detailed jumpers of famous world landmarks, to be exact.

He also likes to stand in front of said landmark, proudly presenting his art to the world.

What a bloody champion.

Sam told MailOnline he’s knitted 103 jumpers to date. They’re no easy feat either – Sam claims one jumper can often take a month to complete.

And no, sadly, they’re not for sale.

He knits waterfalls, city blocks, electricity towers, animals and bridges – his art knows no bounds.
