There are a couple things that have caught my eye this week, and I thought I’d share.
These sweaters. If they look vaguely familiar, they’re made by a company that designed some of the knitwear for the Matrix movies. I love the simple but unusual shapes, the carefully deconstructed look, and the asymmetrical closures. They even have knit patterns available for a few of the designs (The prices are a bit inhibitive. Not that that’s stopped me from drooling.) and they are sold online at three shops so far. There’s even a knit-along for them! Personally, I think a self-designed sweater inspired by the Skif line may be more in my budget, perhaps knit in some yarn spun from some of Spinderella’s thrums…
Along the same lines, a shop called Homefrocks that sells sewn clothing (along with some of the Skif sweaters – that’s how I ran across them) that I find rather intriguing. Again, there’s not way on earth I could buy the clothes, but they get my gears turning in a designing sort of way.
If you haven’t seen the new Knitpicks multicolored wood needles yet, you need to go look. Super snazzy, no? I’ll let you know what I think of them as soon as my set arrives… Did you notice the 2 – 3.25 mm dpns come in sets of 6, in case of a disaster (or in my case, misplacement.) Good idea!
