I did this, and I am not sorry

fringe garter shawl

Maybe you thought I was joking. Or maybe you’ve understood that my ’70s fiber fixation is more than just a crush. But honestly, if you’re gonna make a funky, pinkish-tan, garter-stitch shawl that’s too granny for grandma, it’s gonna need some fringe. Some very serious fringe.

This amuses me greatly, but I may need to make another one in an unmistakably sophisticated yarn — a nice dark tweed or something. Then it can be haute.

    • Ha! I was just replying to your comment on the A.L.C. resort pics, saying you needed to go check out the shoes!

      I do have fringed shoes, I confess. Elizabeth & James from a couple of years ago. Oh!, plus some grey suede moccasin booties, with the requisite fringe! It never occurred to me I own multiple pairs of fringed shoes. Maybe because neither of them gets worn much. Hmm.
