For Your Eye-Searing Pleasure

I’ve been going through the vintage knitting books I just got from a friend of my mother’s. Most are from the 60’s and 70’s, with one very cute kid’s clothing booklet from 1941.

But this crocheted eye-catcher totally takes the cake.

Eye Searing Outfit

You want it.

Admit it.

Bribe me well enough, and I might send the pattern booklet to you. Bribe me even more, and I’ll promise not to.

    Probably why I wear black all the time, too.
