I think I’ve found a new fascination… knitted chains. I also have a unnatural fondness for rope, so I suppose it was bound to happen. I was trawling through some old magazines this weekend and I found the picture above in May ’08 issue of Living etc. I spotted this knitted link necklace on the side of a picture frame and thought it was fantastic. It’s credited to ‘Beyond the Valley £88′, (a quirky little boutique that is a block over from where I used to work), but I doubt they have it anymore.
HOWEVER, in a stroke of good luck, I came across Etsy artist Yokoo who creates some fabulous knitwear. I’m not always the best judge of what would actually look nice on me, instead focusing on what I like as an actual object, so I’m trying to play it safe…but how cool are these? Perhaps I can swap out my oversized scarf in the winter for said necklace? Hmm…or does this go on the list for makelounge? At the very least, I think my picture frames can handle the statement…
Okay, this one I DEFINITELY cannot pull off!
