Knit Spotting

Joey and I went wandering around town after brunch yesterday and happened upon a vintage shop that had tons of knitwear.  Here are a few of the pieces that caught my eye.


8483038312_cb574b73e0_bAs a child of the 80s, I can’t see this sweater and not think of Nintendo’s Duck Hunt game.  I think you could have a lot of fun with this sweater vest if you had enough moxie to pull it off, though I’m not sure I would be confident enough to do it.

This sweater caught my eye because of the bold graphic diamond and zig zag patterning.  I’m not so sure about what the checkered finish  line and puppy dogs have to do with anything, but there they are.  This one was rightly tagged as a “fun Cosby sweater.”

I love the red and grey and white combo and the nice slim silhouette of this sweater.  Its a vintage University of Alabama sweater.  (definitely had to google that.)

Off the wall?  Off the planet more like.  The label reads “Expressions by Campus” which is a fashion label from the late 60s early 70s and it seems they had a lot of interesting knit and crochet sweaters.

    Great stuff! I could have helped you with the UA sweater, being an alum and all. 😉
