SOMETIMES WHEN THE EVENING'S YOUNG
THE WIND DIES DOWN, THE SETTING SUN
CROCHETS THE CLOUDS WITH YARN SO FINE
AND FILLS THE OCEANS WITH RED WINE.
I've never had a crochet-shaped hole in my heart, or so I thought. Better left for trivets and uncomfortable blankets that provide little in the way of warmth, I'd filed crochet away with damask, fringe and gold. These are things I just don't wear.
But the reason I'm a scientist and a doctor, not a fashionista, is because I do not know much about these things, so here I am - touting a crochet top, and telling you about the TRENDS YOU NEED TO KNOW about, accompanies by an assortment of handicrafted items I am 1) not a'tall made at and 2) have my thinking I might need to add a little more craft to my closet.
This feels like an elegant solution to transition to fall in the south. When you want sweater weather so bad you can taste the PSL on your tongue, but the thermostat says not so fast = just put some holes in it. Sweat no more in your transitional knits, when they are crocheted for less coverage. Also, a real resort moment can be found with a sassy cover-up, or a festive pant, agree? Are any of you guys planning a getaway for the holidays? High-tail it somewhere and stay put for two weeks...
