What can I say - you've left me ROTFLOL!!! Great take on all those "wonderful" fashions of the sixties and seventies!Lea
What a fun read, especially at midnight when I can't sleep!Li
Hi,I love your musuem! Actually, I love your blog. In fact, I dedicated an entry of my blog to yours: http://www.20six.co.uk/trackback/acj8yom57yiaI've also added you as a link, if you don't mind!Hilari
how's about we try that again with an actual working link this time, eh?http://www.20six.co.uk/weblogCategory/1hm2sa6vfy7rm?d=4.10.2004Hilari
Stamp out acrylic! NO MORE YARN SORES!Looking forward to your next edition of MOK (and anything you might post before then) Thanks for the laughs!
Oh my gosh, this post had me laughing out loud here at work and then I had to explain, and well...Good gawd! Thanks for making my morning!Heidihttp://absintheknits.typepad.com/
OMG! Too F---riggin funny! Thank you, Thank you, THAKN YOU! I needed that
That's what '70's feminism brought us. We thought we were 'in charge' of our bodies. Man, those pictures bring back a lot of bad memories. Glad you made me laugh!
Oh my lord. I found your blog through the ChicKnits site, but I am book marking it right now. (I have a "thing" for vintage patterns, but usually tossed aside those from the seventies. Never more! Who knew they were so lascivious?)~Marlena
This was too damn funny. Thank you for the great laugh. Camels! ROTFL...Tanya
I just know your Museum is going to become famous. I'll bet you can even start charging admission for the laughs it brings and ditch that day job of yours. Another brilliant installment!
when i was in the 3rd grade my mother made me a peekaboo crocheted dress that my mother would style with a white blouse underneath providing me with the correct amount of modesty up top. but the skirt was peekaboo-y as well and my slip was there for viewing. i'm still working this out with my therapist.sighmaryse @ http://morici.typepad.com/bag_n_trash
Hi,I love the MOKs. But I think that the pillow while being atrocious might not be erotic: that's supposed to be the astronomical sign of Gemini. Karin
Mrs McYarnpants... you very funny lady! Clever post, I especially enjoyed the yarn sores!!! Thank you!
*snort*I actually have that exact McCall's Needlework and Crafts! I've got around a dozen from '67 - '73... gawd, they're all just like that. http://monkeepundit.blogspot.com/
Funky Vintage patters are just great! (Child of the 70's!) But why oh why did they ever envent Acrylic! NOT in my "Polymerized Paradise" of yarn heaven! Some vintage goodies can be 'tweaked' into some great 'now' designs in gorgeous yarns available now - not too sure about HotPants though LOL - Greetings from Amsterdam Netherlands :¬) www.draw-strings.com - Fun blog btw ~Lydia~
I also found your site while surfing Chicknits, and I've added you to my bloglines subscriptions. Too funny! I live in Western MA, wish I was close enough to go to the Knitsmiths gatherings. And hey, maybe you need to start a mini-short-a-long, that might get some needles clicking all over the place!http://knitterpated.blogspot.com
Oh god, I think I just hurt myself. Thank you.
You are too *funny*! I am still laughing at the camel joke, as well as the PTA = Pants Tossed Aside!! Wow, what a great journal entry! Thanks for giving all of us a laugh! :)
Thanks for the giggles...especially since I used to wear those "hotpants" and much of the other stuff. The demand for acrylic came about because it "didn't felt". Fabulously fun days back in UK before I was whisked away by my still gorgeous "Yank".
Hi! My name is Jenn, I saw your post the other day with the Mr Dressup sweater and the horse fly net. Picture here: http://photos1.blogger.com/img/178/1590/640/Dude.jpgI was wondering if you had the book the horse flynet pattern came in or knew the title or perhaps where I could get another copy of it if it is in a book? I have been searching for a flynet because my horse needs one and the storebought ones, although basically the same thing, just aren't cool when I know I can make my own! I can be emailed at emanonx AT hotmail DOT com. I would have just sent an email to begin with but I couldn't find one on the page. Sorry for bothering you! By the way...This entry, with all these crazy fashions, is awesome!
ROTFLMAO! Thank you for this entry. It made my day!
*LMAO*Wow... I just have to link this entry. I'm very glad that everyone else in my office is out to lunch. It would be hard to explain why I was reading knitting blogs at work and laughing so hard!Thank you THANK YOU!Miriamwww.mimknits.blogspot.com
I think the sandwich board dress item is my favorite...*patiently waiting for Volume III)*
Oh god..I was laughing so hard I started to cry. Husband Boy had to come see what I was laughing at. LOL I showed him the pants tossed aside lady and he had to leave the room. hahahahahahhahaha
These pics are hilarious. I am so glad I missed the 60s and most of the 70's...
I'm pretty sure my sister had that issue of Seventeen Make It. That image was burned into my retinas at a tender age, although surpressed all these years. This explains so much....
If you really cant sleep, you might look at a video of knitting addiction at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5299855665083820396&q=knitwitzIt is a funny diversion... :)JLH "I'm a MAN and I KNIT!"
