Chunky Knits on the Runway!!!
Can you say FAB-U-LOUS?! I have been noticing a lot of chunky knit in fashion this week and thought I's share. I can't wait until it cools off a whole bunch here in Texas!!!

Oh dear god... they look like they are eating them alive. Not a fan of that kind of knitting at all.

They do look like they're being eaten alive!
Not exactly practical, and it's not like you're going to be seeing anyone walking down the street sporting that look, but that's to be expected at those kind of fashion events I guess.

Nevertheless, knits are definitely big this season ... I've seen lots of chunky sweaters, scarves, etc. which is awesome!

Hi!

That is seriously EXTREME!

But I'm sure there's an eskimo somewhere who would totally groove to those designs!

It gets cold here in Maryland but I think that might be even a bit extreme for our climate. But........I wonder what kind of reaction I'd get wearing one of these designs pushing my cart at the local Food Lion?

Thanks so much for sharing!!! I LOVE seeing the inventive ways knitting can be done!

Ruthie

They do Jan!! That may just be a tad overly chunky for my taste! But...I was freezing last night and those sure look like they would have warmed me up!~

Those scarves look like they would better fit Paul Bunyan than a "regular" sized person!! And that one woman is wearing something like a wisk on her head!!!

Where would you ever buy some SUPER chunky yarn that size anyway??? Fun to look at though!!

chunky knits
This reminds me of the video awhile back in which the woman knitted a square with --can't remember if it was 100 or 1000 strands of yarn. Also raises the question: Why would anyone do this? The scarves look heavy!! linknit 41
