The Rock & Roll Collection (feat. indigodragonfly)
I’m a rocker-chick at heart… For a long time, my wardrobe was almost entirely an homage to the Hamburg-era Beatles. Although my tastes have broadened since then , I still tend towards clean lines & dark colors. I wear a lot of black. Which is great if you’re a fashionista, but not so great if you’re a knitter. It’s hard to knit with dark colors, and equally, dark colored knits are hard to show off. What’s the point of all that fancy patternwork if no-one can actually see it?
These pieces are designed specifically for knitting in dark colors… they’re interesting, but still easy to knit. They are detailed, but not so much so that you’ll damage your eyesight. The patterning is clean & strong. The resulting pieces are beautiful & wearable, with an edge. They’re a little off-kilter – a little rock and roll. The socks and mitts each have a left & right. The shawl is slightly asymmetrical, and the hat features an irregular ribbing.
Love colour? You can do that, too!
