Loud and Proud

This is just a nicely done very noticeable vintage ski sweater.

Note the unusual mandarin collar on this cardi.
This button is too cute.

Barbie all knitted up

Despite her large busom, insanely long legs, impossibly narrow waste, it is the outfits like this that make me still want to be Barbie.

Knitting Pron.

I wanted to start a blog to keep track of all the knitted items I find online which appeal to me for various reasons. Function, form, prettiness and execution.

Since my knitting skills are considerably lacking, more from failure to grasp the concept of reading the directions all the way through and understanding something called Gauge, as well as the ability to focus on a particular new project for longer than the span of a three year old in a toy store, I realized I could just collect my own knitting porn here and save myself the hassle of attempting to knit anything harder than a stockinette stitch scarf.

Maybe my lack of attention can inspire another more intrepid knitter out there.

Without further adieu, here is a lovely natural color hand knit wool cardigan in tans/brown and blue.
