Caution: May Cause Retinal Bleeding

Cue Thriller theme music...NOW:













Now before you go and accuse me of pulling these out of an old knitting book from the 80's, I have to say: these were recently added to the net as patterns. RECENTLY. Now I have to admit that my hair resembled a few of the models (think bangs hitting the ceiling fan blades), and I owned a totally bitchin' pink sweater complete with poofy sleeves and really thick shoulder pads, but those retired with my denim mini-skirt and my bottle of Aqua Net hairspray. The return of bell-bottoms was bad enough (oh sorry, "flared" jeans as they are now called) but I can't handle the return of the 80's, my eyesight is damaged enough from pong!

WOW! Those are hideous! How did we survive the 80s?! I think I had a pink sweater dress like that one, but I wore it with a bigger belt.

Funnie how everyone wants to be so skinny so they can have big ol' sweaters on that makes them look obese!

The second and fourth sweaters were not so bad but the rest . . . oh yeah!

*in Valley girl voice*

Like, gag me with a circular needle!

They were recently added as patterns because Garnstudio seems to have put all their old pattern books online. So I'm pretty sure they are from the 80s. Just look at this page: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/drops_catalog_oversikt.php?type=Drops
The pictures are from the very last one, which is numbered "1". As the catalogues alternate between "spring/summer" and "fall/winter", it looks very much like their old catalues. Unfortunately the cover picture is too small to read the year on it.

Actually, they even say, that those are patterns from the 80s that they recently put online: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/soek_siste.php

Yes, they are very obviously from the 80s, and they were recently added...that is my point! Why?!?!

oh seriously, I had to scroll through it very very quickly all the while thinking "NO! Stop!" I honestly did avert my eyes before it was over.

Maybe they were just recently dug out of the DROPS vaults and posted because DROPS knows something we don't know... Everything old (and ugly) is new (and ugly) again. Considering those oversized, drop-shoulder sweaters, they would sell a lot more yarn.

OMG! The shoulder pads!!!!

I'm NOT going back to that!

What I find particularly interesting is the looks on the models' faces.

Several are either making the effort to pretend that they look cool in these creations while several of them look as though whoever is taking the photo is also holding a gun....

Given the choice of modeling these things or death... I would take the easy way out. Yikes!
