Good evening. This is Ikeda.
These days, the word "Generation Z" comes up a lot.
I feel like I've heard people talk about prioritizing what they want to do rather than "getting ahead," but maybe it's just my imagination.
I'm not sure which side I belong to, since I'm on the exact crossroads between Millennials and Generation Z.
It's not about "promotion", so perhaps it's more of a Gen Z mindset.
A fish that changes its name as it grows up due to its connection with "promotion" = "prosperity fish" is something that I can never remember.
In the first place, I don't have much desire to memorize it, but as an adult, I wonder if it would be better to memorize it using common sense.
Among these "successful fish" is yellowtail, and YASHIKI's Arare Knit, which we will be introducing today, is slightly related to yellowtail.
First of all, Arare Knit's image source is ``winter thunder that is so strong that it shakes the windows, which is called ``buri-okoshi'' or ``yuki-okoshi''.
I had never heard of the word ``buri okoshi,'' so I looked it up and found that it is only used in Ishikawa and Toyama prefectures.
So you don't know.
Cold yellowtail, which migrates through the Sea of Japan from mid-November to December, begins to be caught in conjunction with the thunderstorms of early winter, so the term ``wake'' is used by fishermen to ``wake up'' a sleeping yellowtail. It is said that it is called ``yellow-awake''.
That was a little bit of trivia.
``Yuri-okoke'' is represented by the side part.
Vertical lines are created using lightning, and dots created using hail are expressed through knitting.
This is where plating knitting comes into its own.
Plating knitting is a knitting method that uses different yarns on the front and back sides.
I think it's hard to tell from the image, but by doing so, the colors give a sense of depth.
*Black uses single color thread.
In the center of the body, lead-colored clouds thickly cover the sky.
Since the clouds are so thickly covered, the yarn used in the back stitch is not very visible in this knitting style.
The fabric is just the right thickness, making it soft and comfortable to wear.
100% safe cotton.
There are three colors: Mustard, Matcha, and Black.
Mustard and Matcha use the plating stitch mentioned above, while Black has a simpler look.
Black goes without saying, but Mustard and Matcha are also subdued colors that aren't flashy, so if you tend to choose dark colors, you should try them on.

"Buri carpaccio with the scent of matcha"
