How crazy would it be to knit a dress? Especially something like this dress below, which Rosemary sent me the link to. Amazing! The pattern is only $3.00 but I am sure the yarn to make it would cost a small fortune.
I have been quite smitten with the vintage look lately. A few months ago, Rosemary also gave me a set of old knitting books that she found at an estate sale in Vermont. Just one glance at the Jackie O hair-do's and mod mini dresses you can probably guess them to be circa 1965. These books are so fun to look at. The photography and styling alone is just great!
Here are a few of my fave looks.
I love them all, but can't seem to get the the Lacy Evening Sweater (below) out of my head. It is by far one of the best knit things I have ever seen...
...so I am planning to make this sweater in 2009! I am thinking of Blue Sky Alpaca's Silk in either Peacock, Peridot or Ginger and hope to have it done by summertime, or more likely the fall. I think it will be just as fun to knit as it will be to (eventually) wear! The pattern describes it to be "perfect for cocktails-into-dinner" but I think it will look cute when drinking before any meal. [haha!]
