  1. I love innovative knits. These are fabulous. I used to be a knitwear designer back in the 80s and I know just how difficult these must have been to produce. Great find. By the way I’ve put an explanation about my books on my blog.

  2. Love the wears. Really fun.. I wonder if the head sweater is heavy?? I love them, however, I would never be comfortable doing some of those activities in them.. Hee hee
