i don't really know what it is, but i always seem to wish for all things retro. am i alone on this one?
in style, and in knitting too... well not really always in knitting... i like the fit better now in most garments than they used to be... you know what i'm talking about... no more armpits of your sweaters lining up with your belly button.. no, i like them tighter than that. the arms i mean... :)
i don't know, i just seem to be drawn to colours that make me think of days gone by... i'm sure the styles i'm thinking of and longing for are styles my mom used to wear... i was too young to really revel in those styles...
don't get me wrong... there are a lot of great new styles out there! and i like them a lot too! and i'll be knitting them, i promise!
but there's something about cuddling up to an old granny square or ripple blanket with an aged copy of your fav book... isn't there?
well whatever it is, i like it. it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.... and i totally wish i had some of the things that my parents had on their walls, to decorate my place....
haha... but don't tell the hubs. we might not see eye to eye on that one :) just looking at these colours makes me want to craft. so here's hoping i get up to that this weekend!
what about you? are you a fan of the '70's? does it make you want to craft by a bonfire, sipping wine out of a little pottery mug? leave me a note and let's chat! you never know, you could be inspired! wishing you a groovy weekend!
