Fifteen years ago, when I bought my house, the 1970′s kitchen was ugly. Today, it is STILL ugly, because we can’t afford to get it updated.
Dark brown panelling on the walls? check
Old brown cabinets? check
Vintage beige oven & vent? check
Ugly linoleum countertop and backsplash? check
The Brady Bunch would feel right at home in my place.
Since I can’t afford to do any major overhauling of our 70′s kitchen, I think I’ll just go with the flow. Let’s go 70′s all the way! GROOVY!
Bernat has recently come out with some fun, mod colors that will fit right in with my “old skool” kitchen decor. So, I’m going to knit a tea cozy, dishcloths, and a towel with some of these new shades. COOL, MAN!
I’ve chosen some new colors of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton for some fun dishcloths. The colors “Mod Blue”, “Tangerine”, “In Motion Twists”, and “Mod Twists” should work perfectly.
Check out my new “Mod Blue” doily dishcloth! FAR OUT!
I used Bernat’s free pattern “Doily Style Dishcloth” for a VERY fast knit. This doily only took one day to make!
Now, I’m ready to get started on a towel, using the Mod Blue and Mod Twists yarns.
Stay tuned for my next post – Same Bernat website….Same Bernat blog.
