granny squares of the 70s

recently my dad came across one of my grandmother's old crochet magazines and gave it to me. vintage knit/crochet magazines are always a favorite (70s ones especially!), so here - woman's day granny squares: the photo essay.

woman's day granny squares

already drawn in by the 70s color schemes.

crochet mosaic skirt

straight-up afghan as clothing. i don't know.

granny square vest

there is something appealing about this one though, in a hippie-ish sort of way i guess.

granny square blanket
nice folk album cover art styling.

i always love the strange kid photos.. think about the fact that this was the best shot of the session.

awkward baby blanket
crochet childrens poncho
this kid's face says it all.

crochet wall hanging

i do rather like this wall hanging. except, you know, as a blanket..

crochet blanket 1970s

gravity-defying. i have no idea what's happening here.

crochet vests

"am i gonna get beat up for wearing this?"

more photos on my tumblr, if you're up for it.

and we're back.

i haven't been feeling much in the way of creativity this winter. likely because these past few months can be summed up pretty well by this image:

meanwhile in new england

(though actually the place in japan where this photo was taken is pretty interesting.)

anyway, i'm doing lee meredith's photo-a-day thing for april on instagram. i figured one photo per day would be simple enough, but i've lately i'm out of the house for about 12 hours on work days, so.. not so much. oy. but i will plug along. (: week one:

#leethalpad sky
day 1: #sky

leethalpad face
day 2: #face

leethalpad twist
day 3: #twist

leethalpad sweet
day 5: #sweet

some have been challenging (in a good way!).. who would have thought i would have trouble finding something for "clash"? in the past i think i would have just stopped doing it altogether if i missed one day (because if it's not going to be just right, why keep going?), but i seem to have gotten past that a bit. i'll try and catch up a bit, but here at least we have a beginning!
