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:

And from Knitscene Accessories 2013:

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.
