I think I have just discovered my new favourite blog in KNIT GRANDEUR, found whilst researching Issey Miyake knits. Simply a collection of images detailing the designer knits of high fashion. It’s a dream.

All of the sweaters in this series so far have been vintage knits so I thought I’d post something new-ish this time.
Something very summery (and a bit like a really sophisticated string vest) from the Purl Bee, the pattern is free too. Get stuck in!

I am a bit obsessed with this image that I found over on the Patternity blog. I was dreaming that it might belong to an old knitting book or magazine that I could track down through a bit of research but alas all I came up with was a photo of Paulina Porizkova on an Erotica forum (?!). I just love the “ballet” styling, the over-sized cable jumper, thrown on and the soft tones – I probably wouldn’t have thought to knit a sweater in blush pink but I might now. One day I will design my own version of this, it looks supersoft…
