Knitwits


It's Vintage Thingies Thursday again (at Confessions of an Apron Queen) and here's what I've got for you!

Remember Kathy, the Artex lady who painted all over her family's clothes (while they were wearing them), birth certificates, and the furniture?

Well, this is her sister. Her little hangup is knitting.Specifically scarves and hats. Many, many scarves. And many, many hats.

This is the family's Christmas card photo for 1976, get it, the Bicentennial. Notice the frozen smiles on the faces of the other adults. The grimaces on the kids. And the dog and cat?

Well, the dog's kind of confused. But dogs do wear sweaters, so he figures, hey, what the hell, I can do a hat too!

The cat, on the other hand, is totally disgusted. That hat's coming off in about one second and then there's going to be a feline free-for-all! The cat-people know what I mean.

Kathy's sister shouldn't have left all those skeins on the floor. There'll be tangles and knots and chewed-up yarn all over that den.

The cat has plans. Big plans. You can see it in her eyes.

Acrilan: you can't put it down. But maybe you should.

Kathy and this lady have a cousin who likes to needlepoint - she really, really likes it! Do go and pay her a visit over at Found In Mom's Basement. Mind you don't trip over those beautiful needlepointed blocks!
