Inspiration To Keep Me Going...

To keep our fingers twitching with inspiration during our 3-outfits-in-3-days Rodarte inspired challenge, I've posted some amazing close up shots of the original collection from Playlust. We're trying to knit up something similar for the Eske Kath Afterparty we will be hosting this Saturday, and given that the task at hand is a lot more challenging than the ones we usually take up, we've started early, using Christina's knitting circles. Christina is incredibly dexterous and finds them super easy to use, while I prefer the feel and rhythm of real needles, which I've switched over to, even if they move more slowly. The key to the Rodarte knit pattern isn't being a good knitter, on the contrary, it's being a bad one: dropping stitches, randomly interchanging the knit and the purl stitch without rhyme or reason, and changing yarn without any particular pattern, creating the perfectly haphazard web that has garnered praise from Fashion Editors all over.  We will see what the result is, hopefully enough to cover our bodies...
