Hunger Games 2 knitwear

Just saw The Girl On Fire and am nuts for this sweater. I may try to do something with this inspiring me for the wearable art show!

Anthropologie Idea, wool coat w/ knitted collar

This assymetrical wool felted coat with what looks like a knitted collar made of organic cotton is a must on my to do list. I just scored an oversized wool coat that I can redesign.
Just finished the Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade Koolaid dyed wool sweater made from this basket of beautiful off white assorted wools sent from my mom in Minnesota. It came out great will show pictures soon, but even with 15 packets of dye, it still wasn't enough to create a solid color, so it has a gorgeous marbled look. The fashion show is on Tuesday. Hope it is dry by then as you know how long wool takes to dry in damp climates.
I love it when fashion designers throw us knitters a bone like this gorgeous pink sweater. Inspiration. This is a Michael Kors piece from W magazine.

Blue Raspberry Lemonade Kool-Aid to dye for

I am working on a sweater for a fashion show and the yarn that I have available to me for such a big project is natural white. Since I already have two natural white sweaters and the theme of the show is Falling into Winter I am going to dye the finished piece with Blue Raspberry Lemonade Kool-Aid, I think it is going to be perfect.
Also included is the daily sweater and cute skirt combo by my most current favorite designer at the Shetland Trader.

Big Sweaters, Cute Skirts and Leg Warmers knit knit knit

I love it when my fashion magazines feature knitted pieces. Hand knit sweaters look amazing with simple skirts. These pictures are from an article in W magazine.
