I will not add to my queue. I will not add to my queue. I will not- Nope, I give up. Andi’s latest pattern, Aiken, is just jaw dropping! Gorgeous and simple. She really knows how to flatter. I love her style!
>> How do you feel about granny squares? Top Shop is selling a turtle-necked, long-sleeved granny square dress for $580. I’m not sure I can get behind it (coming from a girl with furry shoulders, I guess I shouldn’t throw stones) but I’m definitely giving the side eye to it’s “Hand Knit Crochet” title…
>> This is kind of incredibly disgusting but also probably cool? Anna Dumitriu makes quilts out of MRSA. She also needle felts little lungs and infects them with TB.
>> H&M wants to pay all textile workers a living wage by 2018. While I’ve really come to detest fast fashion, they have seemed to step up and take responsibility. I’m still sticking to my buy less (I’ve only bought a few garments, most made in the US, over the past few months!)/make more policy but good on them for working a little harder to make their industry better. They should hurry up!
>> It’s not news to any of us that hand knitting is undervalued. But this post is a good reminder that it’s still happening. (I also love that she uses the word makar to describe herself!) Don’t under-sell yourselves!
>> I don’t think I ever gave too much thought to this sweater on Mad Men (gosh, was that season two!? Feels like yesterday) but I was wrong. It’s definitely worth a look.
>> And goats wearing sweaters!
Hope you’re enjoying your short week and holiday if you’re state side. And it’s Hanukkah, too! Many days of latkah frying coming up! What will you be knitting on before your turkey nap?
