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.

granny square vest


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

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.

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