Today, October 10, 2014, is I Love Yarn Day. How can you not love yarn, when it can produce such a jaw-dropping masterpiece like this mixed knit poncho from Junya Watanabe for Comme des Gaçons?
Isn’t she beautiful?
I went to visit her at Barneys New York the other day. I floated through the store, drooling over all the immaculate artwork on the racks. I know Barneys is a clothing store, not a museum, but sometimes I see it as an art exhibit that has constantly revolving showcases of all the top-name, and obscure artists’ works for sale–to use the word ‘sale’ loosely.
This was just so breathtaking; I had to take a photo. I wish it was a sweater, instead of a poncho. If it was a sweater, I would have bowed down and lit candles for it. I’m not a poncho type of girl. It looked amazing, but my arms felt trapped and I just couldn’t hang. Sometimes I totally wuss out, when it comes to function over fancy.
How am I going to knit, if my arms are trapped in this poncho?
I asked her to come home with me, but she asked me if I had $1,565.00. I told her she’s going to have to stay at Barneys for now, and I went to the School Products Yarn Store.
