but on the bright side, i have some patterns for those knitters out there to use! some of these will need circular needles, some of them not. also, a great tofu-shaped pincushion which i am currently making myself :D
http://knitting.about.com/od/mittenpatterns/p/fingerless.htm: this is a great one, fingerless mittens knitted with circular needles.
http://thecraptastictruth.blogspot.com/2008/03/little-black-handbag.html: a cute, durable black clutch (i think it's a clutch?). you can knit it it with one strand of yarn, or two.
http://knitting.about.com/od/knittingpatterns/ig/Easy-Knitting-Patterns/easy_wrap.htm: like a shawl/wrap thingg... includes increasing and decreasing stitches, so better learn that :D
http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2006/06/15/tofu-for-you/: this is the very cool tofu pincushion, which even has a little face on it! you can make it whatever expression you like, and it's very easy to make.
http://www.lincraft.com.au/view_project.php?id=251: a pretty bolero knitted with bamboo yarn, for beginners (or so they say).
http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/patterns/alluring_halter_top.php: halter top :D is cool looking.
have fun knitting, and i will post a picture of my finished tofu pincushion, complete with weird expression, as soon as i finish it! :D oh, and maybe i'll try making those fingerless gloves too.
edit: hey look! what on earth are these? well, they're websites that i found really helpful for expanding my knowledge of knitting. they'll get you started; i suggest you roam around the net for some cool stitches, like moss stitch, and pretty techniques like cabling.
http://www.theyarnco.com/instruction.php: all the basics are here :)

- Chain neclace with black fringe
- Chainmail bag with chains
- I found this amazing vintage black dress with a low cut back drapped in delicate chains on some website but I didn't save it and am kicking myself cause I cant remember where it was!
- In an unrelated matter, there is so much beautiful knitwear out there atm (rodarte, missoni etc) I really want to learn how to knit.

To me looks a bit costum-ey and does anyone else think Christophe Decarnin has used the exact same sillouettes two seasons in a row? What did you guys think of Balmain?
On a side note, the word verifications for blogger.com are very amusing.

Possibly the only non-trucker/baseball cap I look good in *is in love with these items*. And can you believe the hat only cost $2.50 AUD? Wow.
Anyway, have fun!

I mean, I dont see much of what I liked about Alexander Wang in the first place in his most recent collection. Sure there were a couple of nice dresses, but nothing that really stood out to me. He focussed a lot on cutouts, like sooo many other designers and there wasnt that sort of street influence that came out in his previous collections. Basically, if I hadnt been told it was Wang I wouldn't have known. It wasnt terrible, but could've been so much better
