It was the morning of the Super Bowl (GO SEAHAWKS) and I had stopped into a local thrift store on the way home from church. Practically the first thing I saw was a heavy hand-knitted sweater with a shawl collar and front zipper. Hmm, I thought…these usually have a design on the back a la the infamous Mary Maxim styles. Turning it to the back I was delighted to see that yes, indeed, it had a design. And that design was the super fabulous Seattle skyline, the Space Needle, and Mt. Rainier! Of course I immediately snatched it up and bought it.
It’s a very snazzy handmade 1960s sweater that has special meaning to me, since I am a native Seattleite and the city is very near and dear to my heart. The Seattle Seahawks were playing in the Super Bowl that very day so I took it as an omen. WE WON, in case you didn’t hear – heh heh. It’s finds like these that make the vintage search so fun – you just never know what you are going to find. 🙂
