Cuando los lagartijos corren

You know how once you start seeing something you then see it everywhere?

As mentioned last week, I recently re-watched the movie Frida and after that and casting on my sumptuous Camomile a few weeks ago, I have tuned in to seeing Frida Kahlo-inspired styling everywhere!

Like this over the top fun jumper below:

And this next shrug, which is more subdued but still has a South American/Aztec feel to its geometric colourwork.Screen Shot 2013-06-23 at 10.45.17

Naturally, styling in the knitting world is reflecting this fashion trend -as seen in the most recent Noro Magazine:

#6 Semi-Circle Shawl by Tabetha Hedrick

And from Knitscene Accessories 2013:

San Cristóbal Shawl by Ashley Rao

Caught up in this love of all things latin, I couldn’t help queuing yet another cardigan after seeing this beautiful version by Tjaša, which ties into the feel of this trend with it’s elaborate open lacework.

Now I just have to find the time to make it, so that I can wear my hair braided with it and my Camomile! Maybe in a deep, rich purple? Mmmm.

  1. Ooh! Ooh!! Honeybee is in my queue too!!! We can knitting twins again! I obtain an inordinate amount of joy from knitting the same thing as someone else. This notion has raised the urgency of this project tenfold. I still don’t know what yarn I want to use though. Hmmm!
    Whoops got totally sidetracked there.

      • Hmm, I’m not sure, but there might be a knitalong starting up in September that I might want to glom onto- not sure if you’re interested in 1940s knits? But we should definitely make Honeybee a thing at some point right?? Although you have to promise to give me a head start…lol!! Hmm I still can’t decide if I want to make it in red or aqua… or something else entirely!

  2. i haven’t been able to find knitscene magazine and i’d love to make the san cristobal shawl! perhaps i should look online? i loved the sound track to the frida movie, and ran many miles to it (when i used to run!)
