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.


the most inspiring photos I've seen in a bit

"Color film did not exist in 1909, but chemist-turned-photojournalist
Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) had pioneered a
revolutionary method to document pre-Revolution Russian Empire and its
multicultural surroundings. Using color-filtered plates of glass, he captured
a red, a blue and a green channel of each of rivers, railroads, villages, churches
of olde. Even more fascinatingly, we can look 100 years back in time on the
faces of real peasants, factory workers, noblemen, soldiers, sailors and botanists.
