Elizabeth = Pink

This gown is gorgeous! Hail to the queen! Made by knitwear designer Jemma Sykes. She designed this gown, "Elizabeth", for Butcher Couture. The Elizabeth is made from 100% organic wool and was dyed naturally in soft pink for the "wear it pink" breast cancer fundraiser in October 2007. Any woman would look sweet wearing that dress. If you really want one, you better get those knitting needles out and start purling.

Sandra Backlund

Sandra Backlund is a knit apparel designer that is bad ass. These pics are from her latest collection for fall 2009. This collection is machine made and very intricate. Sandra collaborated with Maglificio Miles (an Italian knitwear manufacturing company) to create this master piece collection. You certainly must check out her website. All of her collections are amazing and inspirational. Her style is so futuristic and robotic which makes the knits look like metal which is very cool. Thumbs up!

do you want fries with that?

This dress is so crazy fun. One of our knit peeps found this little knit number on Found Shit. It's got a lot of personality, right? Now I want a cheeseburger for lunch. Damn it!
