Wasn’t the picture of the future painted in the past a lot more fun than the “future” really is? All those robots that were supposed to take the drudgery out of every day, rockets to the moon, the magic of science.
Sue Culligan has captured some of that retro-futuristic whimsy in her collection Knits of Tomorrow. The book includes 20 fun patterns for all sorts of accessories and toys with a retro-future twist. There’s a dog sweater with robo dogs on it, for instance, a paperweight shaped like a flying saucer, men’s socks with a radio tower on them and a mobile inspired by the planet Saturn, to name just a few.
If you like retro decor this book is a must-have, and this week you have a chance to win a copy.
To get in the running, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, March 16. Why don’t you tell me what promise of the retro future that hasn’t come true you’re most upset about. (Me? I really want teleporters, stat.)
Thanks for visiting and good luck!
