Srsly. What's the deal with boxy, chunky, 80s knits. Haven't most of us seen this before? We barely lived through it to tell of lace tank tops and rubber bangles, and teased, permed hair, studded belts, stirrup leggings, oversized sweaters and chunky, elastic belts and it doesn't look like there is an end in sight. Take this sweater, for instance:
It's cute, boxy, kind of in the genre of the sixties. If I knit it now (and it IS chunky, so it would be done in about a week) what is the mileage on it? Will spring bring fine-gauge twin-sets? I don't know. All I can say is that there are many thousands of years of fashion. Can we draw from a new pool and stop recycling the 70s and the 80s exclusively? It's getting boring, you know.
