Completely Knitted Hotel Room Keeps You Cozy at Brighton, England's Hotel Pelirocco

We know that knitting is fashionable now but this is ridiculous. If you are travelling to Brighton in the UK, you can stay in a totally knitted hotel room.

It's a little eccentric, but colourful. It's called the "Do Knit Disturb" room, and if you care to book at the totally cool Hotel Pelirocco, you are in for a treat.

Created by knitting supremo Kate Jenkins, it comes with a fully kitted, oops knitted, lamp, curtains and toothpaste and toothbrush, not to mention the more traditional knitted bedspread.

The other rooms in the hotel are for the more daring -- its website calls it "Brighton's sauciest stop-over" -- and you can opt for the Soul Supreme, Dollywould, or Cloud Cuckooland. But back to knitting...

Kate Jenkins has been featured in TreeHugger before for her wonderful knitted food. She can whip up a tin or sardines, a full English breakfast or a box of tea bags.

Jenkins studied fashion and textiles at university, worked as a designer in the fashion industry and then opened her own shop in Brighton. Jenkins has been knitting and crocheting since she was 15; each piece takes her about two and a half weeks to create. She calls it "drawing with yarn" because she does it direct, without any sketches.
