Knit One, Perl Two For Funky Cardigan Furnishings

Design Inspiration Quirky / Funky

Yup, I’ve heard it many times. I’ve even been guilty of saying it myself, “That’s so grandma!” or “That would look nice…in my grandma’s house!” Well, the old gal is now turning the tables and showing us what’s hip, happening, and oh, so sweetly à la mode. Check out today’s “Design Candy”…you might just wanna take a trip to your local craft store and pick up some knitting needles.
