Knit me if you can
Over the last few years, knitting has made a major comeback in our closets but also on the catwalk. From scarves to sweaters , bow tie, accessories, wool is slowly but surely taking over the fashionistas’ wardrobe.
For Paris-based Wool and The Gang, knitting is first and foremost a trendy and fun activity, their increasingly popular knitting parties have become the new happening from Paris, New York to Geneva. Launched last December at Colette, where the very first party was took place, Wool And The Gang was started by Lisa Sabrier and Carolyn Main, two friends who felt that it was important to have a conscience while being fun and rock’n’ roll.
The formula is simple: you buy their ultra comfy Eco-friendly Peruvian wool, you then receive the user- friendly knitting kit, invite some friends over and you’re all set! If you feel uninspired , or like me , a little bit clumsy, check out their everyday knitting addicts at the newly opened The Smile (26, Bond street), a concept store / cafe that the ladies adopted as their New York headquarters last February.
