Comments  Summary

Summary: Rocker/knitter/author: Share Ross personifies the indie spirit driving both knitting and music today Share Ross is addicted to the needlethe "knitting" needle. A few years back, this punk guitarist and singer wouldnt have given knitting a second thought. She is a dyed-in-the-wool rocker, and knitting . . . well, knitting was for grannies. Then a friend showed up at her house wearing a scarf that she found totally amazing. When Ross asked her where shed gotten it, she said shed knit it herself. Ross was hooked. With "Punk Knits," Ross shares her passion and unorthodox approach to the ancient craft shes so grateful our grannies preserved. All of the 26 designsbeginner- to intermediate--level projects that include arm- and leg-warmers, scarves, miniskirts, hats, and sweatersdraw their inspiration from the style and independent spirit of rock n roll legends like Sid Vicious, Debbie Harry, Patti Smith, and the New York Dolls, and theyre all modeled by pierced and tattooed Hollywood rock n rollers and scenesters. If you think knitting cant be punk, consider this from Ross: Knitting can be as artistic as you want. You can make a statement. And by knitting garments instead of buying them, you can snub the corporations that strip away your individuality. So whats "not" punk about knitting?
