Saddle Shoulder sweaterTop-Down Seamless Saddle Shoulder Sweater by Kyoko Nakayoshi

 

I know I promised Jon a Timberline (about, what, four months ago? Six months ago?!) but this sweater is so handsome and simple. I want to make one now! My dad’s been asking for a sweater (to replace a moth-eaten one that I had noting to do with in the first place but he sees an opportunity and he runs with it). Perhaps this will one day be the one. He would look great in it. Who am I kidding? I’ve got way too much other stuff to knit! One day! I love you! I’ll never let go!

>> Basically ever since I met the lovely lady behind Mokuyobi Threads, I’ve been coveting this tee. I need to buy it, right?

>>  Photographer Christopher Payne gives us a look at the US textile industry, a memory of what it used to be. The photographs are absolutely gorgeous and I think the concept is fascinating. It’s such a shame that so much of our textiles are made overseas. Really just baffling when you think about how just a generation ago the American garment industry was thriving.

>> Speaking of America’s textile industry, check out this fundraiser for Ohio Knitting Mills. They are raising money through indiegogo to make this mill fully operational. Really cool!

>> The Holla Knits Knit-a-long begins on February 3rd. Two people are going to knit The Crash! You should totally join in if you’ve had your eye on an HK pattern!

>> Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2014 collection has a lot of knitted faux-chain mail (for lack of a better explanation) going on. It looks super warm but I hope this does not become a trend. Either way, they’re pretty cool pieces, especially the ones with the beading. You know what, I change my mind. New York has been so goddamn cold, I think I would like to wear one of those.

I’m so sick of this cold weather. I love sweaters like crazy but I’ve had enough. I’ve forgotten what summer feels like! Can’t take a break from my needles or I will surely freeze to death this weekend.

What are you knitting on this weekend?
