Everyone is wondering where I have been this weekend. I have been knitting. It’s kind of become an obsession. And there is a half price sale on yarn at Michael’s. Goodness—this spells trouble. I found a book about men knitting called “Knitting with Balls,” and some of the best knitters I see online are male. So today I am a male knitter.
The needles are put away. Our guy came up with this great sweater. Some of the best knitters are I know are male so this pattern would have been no difficulty. (The truth is that Floatie Hock made this terrific sweater. Just play along with me here.) His jeans are manly work jeans from Callie Cline, who knows what she likes in men.
Our guy’s skin is an exclusive at the Euphoria sim and a new offering from Brox Riaxik. With its very defined features, it’s not malleable to just any shape but once you find the right one, it’s a great look and you won’t run around looking like every other guy. I really like the eyebrows and the whisker work, and his eyes are beautifully expressive. My scarf is woven by Tyr Rozenblum–not knitted but the skull cap is something our guy whipped up while he was laid up with rugby injuries (dude is manly—really!). Cocoro Lemon provided the pattern and the yarn.
My favorite male knitter—Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed:

As the clocks fall forward (and we gain an hour of sleep), the skies will suddenly appear dark early in my part of the world. So a bright spot of pink on an outfit lends cheer and brilliance.
Joy Laperrier and Magnifico Miggins have recently opened a lovely sim called Euphoria which contains some of the grid’s best shopping. Included with the shopping is a rewards program based on purchases made on the sim. Hit the minimums and you begin to feel the pleasure of being a valued customer by getting discounts on your purchases. This dress by Azure Electrictooth is an exclusive item on Euphoria sim. With its retro styling and beautiful satiny skirt, it’s definitely a must-have.
I love this retro hair from Kin Keiko with this look. A girl wearing a dress like this doesn’t need something loose and sexy. She needs something just a tinge done up, a little uptight. My skin is from Kira Ahn’s line, which may still be on sale if you get there fast enough.
I love the line of these pumps and the amazing textures. (Check the seam on the inner side of the shoe—now that’s accuracy.) Cici Vonderheide offers these absolutely drop dead platform pumps in a full compliment of colors. I love the contemporary shape.
