Subject: RE: arran sweaters - a sad loss
Oh Fair Isle knitting!! Used to do a lot of that too. Anyone remember Kaffe Fassett? All the rage several decades ago. We teachers used to sit in the staff room at lunchtime knitting busily from our Kaffe Fassett patterns, like a coven of witches.
When I used to haunt the Edinburgh Folk Club, the singers wore quite 'ethnic' outfits - kaftans, Afghan jackets, long, embroidered skirts etc. With the inevitable headband (I wore one too!).
I suppose ripped jeans and a T shirt with a rude slogan on the front are now de rigueur?
