Patchwork sweaters of the 70s!
It's Fall in New York. People have been saying that for weeks, but today, I took down all my sweaters from the unreachable shelf in the closet and put them pack in the drawer. It's like groundhog day for me and the cats.
Only, I didn't see my shadow, I saw an empty space in the drawer where new sweaters vintage sweaters should be.
And first pick in the lottery is the 70s patchwork sweater-- modeled exquisitely by Andrea Bell's gorgeous mom, Virginia. As the era of free love waned, the period of creative knits dawned.
Here are couple awesome ones I might buy for Fall. Mental note: wear with middle part like the beautiful Virginia. Mental note P.S.: Must color my gray roots first. Ugh.
This one on etsy has suede patches over the boobs. Hello new favorite pickup line: "Ever felt suede before?"
This one has little leathery leaves on it for crying out load. Gimme.
Look at these sweaters. I'm pretty sure I'd seen the one on the left at a found art museum. Only schizophrenic geniuses confined to 15 hours of arts and crafts at a mental institution could create that. If I was another type of human I'd buy this book to attempt to make these sweaters. But I'll probably by the book to look at the photos on ye olde porcelain throne and fantasize about the bizarre Sister Wife relationship between the three models. Why are you judging me?
