Work of Art

All pieces of my cardi are knit, the body is sewn together and just waiting for its set-in sleeves and the last ends to be woven in. I'm very excited, it fits beautifully. Hopefully I don't have to wait until the weekend for photos, but we're about to break a record here in SF for having the most rainy days in March since 1904. I'll leave you with this truly stunning work of art, a woolen coat by Balenciaga. I wish I could see this in person:

Wow that thing is HUGE! Not to say it doesn't have a crazy sort of beauty.
(I know this has been asked before, but I couldn't find the answer on your blog, but are you by any chance going to do instruction for those gorgeous gothic knee highs?)

That coat would be warm AND a workout. Finally a project that would make a dent in the stash.

BTW - you can send the rain to Boston. We've had only .57 of an inch all month.

Sheesh, that coat is amazing. I wonder how heavy it is?

And I echo what mags said...anytime you want to share info on the gothic knee highs I am ready for it. Even my Mom thinks they are awesome--she visits blogs that I link to on my site because she is crazy like that.

Wow, that model must be strong. No undergarments, because they couldn't spare the weight!

Der Mante ist wirklich das reinste Kunstwerk, erinnert mich ein bißchen an ein Hochzeitskleid. Müßte eindrucksvoll sein, sowas mal zu tragen, man wäre sicher kein Mauerblümchen damit.
Das Zusammennähen find ich immer am spannendsten, ich hab immer so Bedenken, damit alles wieder zu verpfuschen, daß ich es wahrscheinlich deswegen so lange rauszögere.
Und bei uns regnet es leider auch in Strömen, aber so verschwindet wenigstens der Schnee sehr schnell.
Ich wünsch dir ein schönes Wochenende, viele liebe Grüße aus dem schönen Bayernland, Suzi
