There is an old saying that if you hold on to something long enough it will come back into fashion. While I am sure that there are plenty of fashions that we hope will never ever see the light of day again, there is one that I am quite happy to see again. I am talking about crocheted cardigans. My Mum crocheted quite a few cardigans for herself in the 1970's and when they went out of fashion she unpulled a few of them and gifted the wool to the aged care facility where my grandmother was living. I was so happy that I found these two that had escaped being recycled into teddy bears or beanies.
I took them home and washed them up. The tan one matches a new dress that I bought on my recent trip to Melbourne, and the green one I wear because I love green!
And as an extra bonus I found the crochet book that the patterns came from.....patterns for the whole family!
Russell has 'politely' declined my offer to crochet him a tank top.....but just in case he changes his mind I will pop the pattern book away.
