Pringle Sweater

I always wanted to be someone who had an “inspriation” wall. No, not of quotes. Depending on my mood, I either find sappy quotes super-stupid or incredibly moving. I think I have bi-polar sappy card syndrome. There was one summer where my friend and I would send each other horrid cards (the ones that are marked “From loving wife to husband” or some such crap) because we thought they were so bad. But then, sometimes, I read them, and I think, *sniff!* “It’s so true! We are just little grains of sand in the world!”

But anyway, I thought it would be cool to have a interior decorating/closet inspiration wall. But I never got around to it. Instead I just pile all my crap around on various sofas (mine and Adam’s.) I told Adam–when he was trying to clear the corner of my crap–that he couldn’t throw away a Lucky magazine because it had a picture of this sweater above, which I wanted to copy. Anyway, I never scanned in the Lucky photo or anything, but I just found a blog,, that had this photo with links to people who had tried to copy it. (Her commenters had all sorts of useful information as well.)

P.S. I am aware I dress more like a homeless lady or Ugly Betty (as evidenced by the fact that Ugly Betty and I had the SAME coat–I replaced the powder blue version with a red puffer a year or two ago, but I digress) than a swinging ’60s mod girl.

    I know we’ve talked about this before, but I’m really worried about how my love for knitting is going to turn me into much frumpier version of myself. For example, how can it be that just a year ago I was scoffing at cables and fair isle and now I’m obsessed with them? And now that I’ve re-learned crochet, I’m potentially in far more dangerous territory. Could it be that I am just a few months away from prancing out on the town in an granny square leisure suit in a flattering shade like avocado or mustard? It is a really scary thought.

    […] found a zillion knitting magazines that knocked-off that Pringle sweater that I was lured by a few months ago, and I have to say, despite me mocking Lion Brand a few posts […]
