Teresa Gregorio just released a really fun ebook called Ghosts: Historiographies, Cultural Manifestations, and the Knits They’ve Inspired. It’s totally weird and interesting and unexpected, and I love every page.
I’m not super into ghosts, but Teresa weaves such a compelling web that you really can’t help but get sucked in. I sat down totally open to being sucked in, of course, because I’ve been a huge fan of Teresa’s for a long time. Taking a look through her pattern library and you’ll recognize a ton of knits you’ve had on your needles and filling your queue. Ghosts totally delivers. Full of weird ghosty shit I didn’t even know existed! And laced with some killer knitwear designs.
These knits are classic with a vintage feel, but without being stuffy. If most of them weren’t shot in a cemetery you wouldn’t even know they were ghost-inspired! But together they have such a wonderful, creepy feel that you know in wearing them you’ll be all that much closer to the other side.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a date with Galoshans. And I’m going to line up all of my supernatural favorites for knit-spiration! Which is basically Field of Dreams on repeat, with a sprinkling of episodes of The Vampire Diaries.
