Last week, I wrote about the leather motorcycle jacket that a student painted for me. In particular, I mentioned that over the course of time, I’d dreamed first about a jacket featuring Day of the Dead skeleton art, then about a jacket painted with an aggressively feminist symbol from mythology, like the Morrigan or a gorgon, and, most recently, I’d thought about a jacket that featured some sort of motorcycle club/tattoo art image of knitting, like a flaming skull over crossed knitting needles.
Then I said that the design being painted on my jacket featured all three ideals. And here it is — the three Fates, imagined as Day of the Dead skeletons, spinning AND knitting the lives of men, and the gothy/motorcycle-y, highly nihilistic phrase, "Gonna die anyway, might as well knit." I love it!

The little girl skeleton in her pink party dress is my favorite!
Now, I just have to wait until fall brings cool weather to wear this bad girl!
