marc jacobs

This is a design by Marc Jacobs 2016. The price is probably high. The sequined skirt adds to the over-the-top feeling. Have you ever sat in a sequined dress? Sequins don’t take to being sat on. So you never sit. Wearing something sequined is like being the sparkly center piece of an overly decorated table.

But the sweater is the best example of why a knitter with a migraine should not knit. Dropped stitches? Who cares? They’re a “design element”. The neckline is what happens when a knitter doesn’t think the design all the way through. Hmmm, what to do about the neck? Maybe a little one by one ribbing….No I want something that says holiday sweater! Now where did I put that sparkly yarn? Yes, a bow round the neck in sparkly yarn and the one by one ribbing should do it. Those dropped stitches will never be noticed now.

And I worry that my designs might be too much. Fact is, I’m just a migraine headache and a bad day away from creating something like this.
