knitspiration - a collection of fashion knit sources

sometimes with knitting, things tend to take a turns towards granny and i'm constantly searching for refreshing new knitting sources that lean more towards fashion than craft. i post my own knitting inspiration photos to my tumblr, but here are some more great resources.

meredith of her sheepish knit crochet tumblr has tons of beautiful inspiration! it's amazing the stuff she finds. while these aren't necessarily patterns, it gives you beautiful, fashionable ways to wear knits you may already have...or gives you ideas to seek out new patterns - or create your own!

zlaika is another tumblr choc full of great things, mostly knitterly. again, tons of inspiration from a wide range of knitting sources.

and of course, ravelry is the go-to source for inspiration AND patterns. there's always the knits in fashion group, which I don't think always has the best fashionable projects listed, but the discussion board is pretty on-target and active. also, here are some of my favorite fashionable ravelers. i'm constantly following what they're making, favoriting and queuing up.

casualattitude has a crisp, vintage look.                                     pretty much everything kamicha makes is spectacular

ambermay has a dreamy look to all of her creations                   vetiverknit's favorites are just as lovely as her creations

hopefully something here has inspired you! with sites like tumblr, pinterest and svpply, inspiration is everywhere. what are your favorite resources for fashionable knits?

Thank you for the links! I've been trying and learning how to make my own patterns so this is great for inspiration.
