vintage ripples

Hi everyone. Been a while since I posted, or even read this blog, but I thought I'd post this pic:


It is from a vintage crochet magazine I just got from Ebay. Cracks me up, that lady in her ripple skirt (isn't she elegant standing like that?!) Oh, actually, I think these ripples are knit.


This other pic is the cover of a knitting book I bought on Ebay. Made with Noro yarn, it makes an incredibly gorgeous coat, doncha think?

Ciao!

I absolutely need a skirt like that. Oh, wait, this is no longer the 50s. I don't have to have a hot meal waiting for the hubby when he gets home. I don't have to wear clothes that make me uncomfortable just to make said hubby happy. Whew!!

The coat is gorgeous.
