STIRL. It’s a good new acronym for KTILT (especially since I’m plagiarizing from Gala Darling’s blog if I use the latter, and I feel bad about that).
1. Tiny little monkeys. I don’t know why, but I do. Like this one:
I mean, seriously. How could you not fall in love?
Yeah, yeah. I know. It doesn’t stretch like wool, it’s not warm like wool, etc. I don’t care. I love the way the fabric it makes feels when you’re done knitting a project. It’s marvelous and smooth and the colors are awesome.
3.Baroque patterns, when used in knitted things.
I found a website a few months back that was selling sweaters knit with these sorts of patterns, only in mind-blowing color combinations. For example, there would be a cardigan with a pattern like the one above, knit in deep turquoise and lime green, and it was stunning. I can’t find the website again, but I’m still inspired. I’ll post it if I can locate it. (Image from the Sidney Ann Etsy shop)
And that’s it for this week. It’s been a little weird, since I had a bad cold at the beginning of the week and didn’t do much of anything except sit at home and try to breathe.
Next week will be awesome, I swear.
