Monday Morning Mirth

You had me at unicorn….

Fashion Week in NYC was in full swing last week showcasing the Fall 2012 RTW season.

Even though I’m more Nanette Lepore than Lady Gaga, there’s just something that grabs me about edge wear. Lots of rock-pop-rave in the air in NYC during last week’s outings – celebs, muscians, and vips, all mingling with industry usual suspects in the giddy jamboree!

Amongst the parade of designer stars, the effervescent Jeremy Scott, sometimes dresser of Katy Perry, Rihanna, Beyonce, et all, took the center stage with his sunshine, lollipops & rainbow kindof collection (lovely knit coat)! In attendance for the rave-up: Jay Manuel, Joe Jonas (where is he?) & tons of DJ’s, all enjoying the perfomance – wish I could hear the music they were playing!

TGIF February 17, 2012

Chic Knits Knitting Blog

Every once in awhile it happens. Right place, right time, right? This time it was the very special occasion of AMERICAN IDIOT being in town at the Oriental Theater, my fabulous friend D taking me for my b-day treat (OMG! Thank you!) and moi having to find something to wear in a flash!

Chic Knits Knitting BlogChic Knits Knitting BlogDigging in my closet, I found a pullover from long ago with a silly message on it.

It’s a little something I made in 2004, with the letters duplicate stitched on it (but of course, in my favorite color). Actually, I was going through a duplicate stitch fever phase and remember excitedly trying it out on lots of stuff and finding all sorts of alphabets and decorations all over the place.

And, even though the Oriental is a rather fancy-schmancy destination, this musical, being the off-center, explosive celebration of punk rock that it is, was sure to forgive, nay, might even hug a little rebel-rebel…

So I threw it on over a dark T and ran off to see one of the most energetic paeans to Youthful Angst ever. Being a big Green Day fan, it was thrilling!

Here’s a snippet of the last show in New York, but what also happened last night in Chicago, (sans Billy Joe). During the encore, the entire cast took up guitars and good-byed the audience with a little musical love…

Help me celebrate this week’s cavalcade of special days and fun! There’s a copy of the new release of PRINCIPLES OF KNITTING waiting to wing its way to a special knitter here at le Chic.

Now if you love knitting, this book just might blow you away! The sections on shaping and short rows alone made my heart go pitty-pat!

Duplicate stitch is in Chapter 14: Surface Decorations(!) and if you’d like to enter a draw for this book, leave a comment below and tell us what thing you’d most like to learn. (We’ll random draw next TGIF and announce…)
