Vive les tricots de Noël d’Après-ski: design pour les geeks

Not everyone wants to spend Christmas with the family in town or in the south, because YES, there are people who love the snow!

Ski trips during the holidays are not born yesterday, but when the Med club starts offering ski destinations, there must be a market, right? Ski trip also says Après-ski mode. For Quebecers better informed, the term « Après-ski » will always refer to the erotic film of 1971 , but that’s not what we want to talk today. Are you celebrating Christmas on a ski trip? Let’s talk knitting of the holidays!

Most often, we laugh at the awful knits found in family portraits, such as those found on the site awkwardfamilypictures.com .

For some years, rock bands have been enjoying their revisited version of the popular Ugly Christmas Sweater. Take for example the metal band Mastodon , who announced his knitting model with the effigy of the cover of his latest album. The sweater was out of stock in just a few days. We can also find bands such as Slipknot , Green Day , Queen Of The Stone Edge , Death From Above 1979 , Descend and many others who took part in the tradition.

If music groups produce limited editions for their fans, it is not uncommon to find designs inspired by cult movies. Take for example Star Wars, Gremlins and A Christmas Stories, just to name a few.

For those with a slightly offbeat sense of humor, this small company with its shop on etsy.com specializes in screen printing and offers its own design series of sweaters. Dentz design presents different models with arrogant and tongue-in-cheek phrases like « Hungover and hungry, do not put me at the kids’ table » or even the mythical phrase of the movie Home alone which is repeated everywhere: « Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal « .

Here! Now you’re ready to go on vacation, do some skiing or snowboarding, and end the day with your most beautiful (or ugly) holiday apron sweater sipping a hot drink. (with or without alcohol).

Happy Holidays time!
