On the subject of Crochet
Okay at least for the moment let me linger on Crochet a little while longer. Here are some visual gems lazily unearthed via the net.
1970s coat - arguably the golden era of fashionable crochet
Crochet in the trendy craft category - yes, you can crochet the contents of your fruit and vegetable fridge drawer. Just know when to stop.
1940s hat - crochet was perhaps being experimented with in some fashion ateliers. This is noggin topper is a neato!
Crochet in the Arts - Australian artist Louise Weaver (what a pun) uses a wide variety of materials and mediums in her work. Her employment of knitting in some of her recent sculptural environments/installations evokes a soulful and imaginative reading.
