Who Says Crocheting Ain't Sexy?

Ad for American Thread, from McCall's Needlework & Crafts, Spring-Summer, 1972

Everyone says only little old ladies spend their days crocheting in rocking chairs. But, see? See? Crocheting is sexy! Really!

I’ll prove it.

For even more snark:

Sunshine days, what girl doesn’t love sunshiny days and skimpy clothing, and the wolf whistles as she sashays past?

Minutes to spare. Sure, because she’s got to finish that alluring bikini in time for the pool party!

Hours to live...

What? How is THAT sexy?

Apparently American Thread is radioactive. In just a few hours she’ll look like a rapidly aging Captain Kirk in that Star Trek episode “The Deadly Years”.

No, we won’t underestimate the Uncommon Seamstress, we’ll just mourn her when she’s gone and buried in a lead lined coffin. And all she had time to create was the lining, frantically hand-crocheted in Harvest Gold and Reaper Orange.
