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.

I love Canadians. I am always impressed with an artist that comes from a Canadian womb.  Mark Fast is a 27 year old Canada native clothing designer. His designs  are particularly unique because he specializes in knitwear. He not only specializes in it, he has redefined it, creating amazing stitching techniques.  The garments are knit by hand using a domestic knitting machine and formed onto the body as they are knit.  In these samples of his work you can see the detailing is out of this world, and the visible nipples aren’t that bad either.  All of the designs are fresh and breezy, great for a yacht or swanky pool party. Some of them more contemporary in their patterns and others more classically inspired.  The models wearing the knits are clearly perfect for the designs. However, I cringe at the thought of a more rotund woman getting her hands on one of these dresses. Nonetheless, these really are beautiful masterpieces.

So we all love our kids and want them to grow up and be a doctor or a lawyer or what the hell, a politician…  But what about those kids who just don’t want to agree with the society and rebel against everything anything good stands for?  Well we love them too ( only when they are young and cute ) that’s why there is a new line of knitting toys out there to satisfy their hunger for, umm, blood.  Actually they are not real toys, I kind of lied,  they are just artistic knitting works called “Knitting for psychos ”  and you can see more of it here: Knitting for psychos

So this is something new, a new form of graffiti out there on the streets that not many can have a grudge about.  It’s knitting, and its kinda cool.  Done by a group of urban rebels that call them selves Knitta Please, it is definitely a cleaner form of graffiti that I most definitely approve, it looks nice, very artistic and the best of all, it’s not a pain in the ass to take off.  Check out the gallery to see more cool examples.

Very interesting work by Swedish artist Sandra Backlund.  Much of her latest work seems to involve knitting style apparel. Check out her work at
