So this is the third FO I've posted in a couple of days...I'm not a fast knitter, I just waited a long time to have a photoshoot...like Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire, I have to rely on the kindness of strangers for digital pictures!

This is Simply Marilyn from Interweave, they've made the pattern free on their website since it was so popular. It was supposed to be in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky...softest yarn on Earth. I did it in a Norweigan wool from elann.com, Gjestal Naturgarn. It's light but kind of scratchy...I think this will be a house sweater, because a large bulky sweater worn off the shoulder just looks kind of funny outside the pages of artfully styled knitting magazine. I should've listened to Maggie Rhigetti and Elizabeth Zimmerman, they both tell us to not be swayed by stuff like lilacs, puppies and soft focus lenses!

With the collar up I can impersonate my favorite artist, Bjork!



This isn't the first time she has influenced my knitting--this was last year's Halloween costume, the swan is just a Fun Fur scarf with a head attached!


Cheers kiddies,

Cirilia  Kiss

I think your sweater is gorgeous; not funny at all so wear itside of the house with pride!

And your Bjork swan outfit is absolutely wonderful! What a great idea for a Halloween costume.

The sweater is very nice.  I haven't attempted anything so time consuming as that yet.

Your version of the swan dress is fantastic.
I love Bjork so so so so so so so so much.
My first tattoo ever is going to be the same one she has.

I want to do some sort of Bjork related knitting project, but I haven't decided what to do.

I don't know a lot about Bjork, so when I read the subject of the topic I assumed that you had knitted your hair.  Cheesy

But good job, you are very talented.

Your sweater came out great! I like the color.
I'm thinking of making a swan shirt now, too. Maybe in hot pink. That was such an awesome idea!!! Do you ever wear it on non-Halloween days? Smiley
Have you seen the recreation someone posted here on craftster? I can't remember which forum (Completed clothing?) but there was a pic of it hanging from a tree.
