Who still think that knitting is a “Grandma’s activity” is wrong. How can I be so sure? During the last five years, back to my glorious days at Uni, and right after, I have seen the art of knitting (because personally I think that being able to knit and through that creating really good things, see knitthecity.com and doknityourself.com, is a true art) becoming a proper trend and then some kind of “movement” that keeps involving ever more people.

My latest discover, thanks to the always efficient and updated shoes website solestruck.com, is called Lindsay Degen, who have made of knit art a way of life, creating in 2011 a proper “activist” brand that goes under the namesake DEGEN.

“My brand celebrates the human body as a work of art and encourages expression through garments. A product of obsession, DEGEN embodies the lover of the handmade, general silliness, and an exploration of ideas through the knitted stitch”, as Lindsay explains.

Her creations are unique, eye-catching and fun in which, as she says, the human body is the central element of her work.

Every collection has a political or deep message, except for the FW 13 one, that is  instead an approach of the human body on a microscopic level, inspired by the work of the designer’s parents, both geneticists.

What a piece of work, DEGEN!
