Cool Link of the Week: Grocery Bag Ensemble!

Via Craft magazine comes this amazing 1950's-style outfit hand knit entirely from recycled grocery bags! It was accomplished as a thesis project by Cathy Kasdan, earning a well-deserved Masters in Textiles at Kent State University. Wow. Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mertz would be proud (I was instantly reminded of one of my favorite I Love Lucy episodes where my girls work a Paris catwalk dressed in feedbag hats).
In other news: A PACKAGE FROM MY SECRET PAL ARRIVED TODAY!!! Beautifully wrapped (I took care of that post haste), loaded with knitterly goodness, Easter swag, and CHOCOLATE. DH has absconded with the camera, so I'll post in great detail later in the week. I love you, Secret Pal!

What a cool pic - I've knitted with plastic bags before - but only a peg bag. An entire ensemble? Wow.

Mmmm chocolate. Yeah!

Love that dress. I was saving plastic bags to knit a bag, but I didn't get very far.
