My free pattern to be  released: Golden Globe Bow tie( soon in a day or two)
It is uni-sex design.. for your girlfriend that loves the vintage style.. Madmen TV show or the Dapper gentleman in your life…this could encourage a fancy date night.
I put a few Images of ladies and gentlemen wearing bow tie at the end of the video.. in case you wanna get into it but not sure where to start or how to style it.
* Bow Ties are COOL!

Here is Ashley Graham , who is one of my favorite Plus-size model( besides Crystal Renn ) in a soft bow tie style Blouse I can picture that knitted.
*years ago there was a controversy  about a sexy ad that was banned from ABC and FOX .. I will place link in  “Lane Bryant ad Hot Ashley Graham banned commercial. I think it because she is left in just a trench-coat to meet her man for Lunch.. what.. so she can be sexy?

WHAT you talking bout Willis?

1.Have you ever heard of a Hamster wheel  cord knitting machine? Is this animal abuse? slave labor… is it wrong. tell inside this episode thread what you think I will post the pic
Artist: Mark Sturkenboomis an artist that graduated in 2012 at Artez Academy for the Arts in Arnhem/Netherlands.

2. “Hands off Wind power knitting machine“. designed by Merel Karlof from the Royal college of Arts.
With the power of the wind, a knitting machine knits from the outside towards the inside of a building. The knitted material is harvested from time to time and rounded-off in individually packaged scarves. Each scarf has its own label which tells you in how much time it has been knitted and on which date.
Then I saw the sexy Wind Knitted Bracelets created with the harvest of Wind Knitting Factory.
Materials: hand dyed cotton, etched brass.
