Cue the bell bottoms and lava lamps! It’s hard to believe this retro trend has made such a comeback! I can still remember my excitement during weaving week in elementary school. Pairing bright and unexpected colors became an obsession and begging my mother to buy more yarn was an every day occurrence. No door handle was left bare. Now the second time around the textures are more refined but the authentic and handmade look has endured. Below I’ve shared a few of my recent favorites.
