A McCall’s knitting and crochet magazine from 1981; before I was even born! She bought it for a quarter at a yard sale. Pretty cool, huh? It’s really intriguing to look a what knits were popular over 25 years ago, just how much has changed and even what has stayed the same.
The gray sweater would be great for the New England fall-possibly in a different color. I like the idea of the green sweater (minus the plastic purple pin at the top) but I would probably alter the neckline, maybe a scoop neck, and 3/4 length sleeves.
Plus, look at all the hotties in this book 🙂 It’s worth looking through just for the eye candy alone!
I also spent several hours today organizing my stash. I have yarn all over the place in my apartment; most of it is just thrown into bags any place I could fit it. I decided it was time to get organized and get everything into sealed bags. Here’s what about 2/3 of it looked like on my couch:
Now I just need to complete the final 1/3!
I’m off to Detroit Rock City tomorrow for a meeting-you know what that means!?- up to 6 hours of in transit knitting time. Hooray!
