a conversation between two friends separated by one state, sharing the same passion for the art of knitwear.

knitorious is an archive for knitwear designers, knitwear students, knitwear lovers and even the knitwear curious.

i have been a fan of the Beckerman sisters for over 5 years now. when i was in high school, my mom showed me an article in Flare Magazine (Canada's own fashion mag) about these girls, and their success with their own line, Beckerman, since graduating from FIT. needless to say, these three Canadian sisters were a huge inspiration to me... and a lot to do with me even considering studying at FIT as an option.

i had the pleasure of meeting the three of them at one of their sample sales in NY a few years back, but they've actually put a hold on their line for the moment and are working on other projects right now such as some things with Teen Vogue, and also their amazing blog, Beckerman Bite Plate. here, the girls (and their mom and dad oftentimes!) post almost daily about what they're wearing and most importantly, how their wearing it. while a vast numer of items they wear are designer, and totally unaffordable, they are also STELLAR thrifters! one of the three of them actually studied knitwear design at FIT so they have a keen eye for sweaters as they understand the craft!
