nikki gabriel goodness, spot the chart, inspiration

after several phonecalls and enquiries (we’re terribly good at getting lost) we finally made it to the nikki gabriel sale. nikki had the most amazing dress on, which was either a dress from the summer 09 collection, or something very similar.
while we didn’t take any photos in the store of the small selection available, as luck would have it, we spotted one of her designs in the wild at the north city 4 launch, and begged. luckily, awesome model. lovin’ the coordinating beer:

also spotted: machine knitting chart! we’re a sucker for the rose pattern, and here it is on the backs of mittens:

we’ve previously played around with the pattern, stopping and starting it, adding in standard rows of knitting and so forth to break it up:

it’d be fun to revisit in the not too distant future.

finally, some inspirational knitwear spotted in the crowd – it’s a fine silver thread alternated with something more cotton/linen like:
