hand knits

Hand Knits for Young Moderns (via J walk)

Experience the magic of heavy knit fabric with your own eyes!

boynton is still recovering from viewing this rather inspirational gallery that puts our own modest collection of foxed and scratched and creased leaflets to shame. And many great sidelinks to explore at Houseplant Picture Studio

Unfortunately, the guy whose site this is happens to be a selfish and exploitative person. He has nearly single-handedly ruined's LINKAPALOOZA wherein people can post interesting links, but cannot re-post the same link over and over. Benbenek (Houseplant) refuses to comply with this reasonable limitation and posts hundreds of links to his own site on a monthly basis. It is a sad abuse of a very generous site feature. This is not to say that Benbenek's stuff is completely without merit; he occasionally presents some valuable stuff. He's just selfish and often mean-spirited (even though he tries to pose as a thoughtful and mellow human being). Your actions indicate otherwise, Mr. Benbenek.

This houseplant 'studio' person posts links around the www to his syte on a daily, perhaps hourly, basis. He posts no interesting original items, only snatch and grabs. His OCD posts are spreading to other sytes like a virus. Please warn webmasters where his drek is noticed...........

Sorry to hear this.
'This blogger' merely did what she always does - sees something retro, links and credits.
Then, if time permits, have a look around the site.
As a small-time collector of old brochures, I was smitten with the knitten. But am sorry to hear about the background, and my part in linking to a site that flaunts the rules.
