  1. Your archive – oops! storage – oops! junk pile – must look like mine! You’ve given me incentive to go through the boxes today. No telling what amazing yarns, patterns, bobbles I might find … maybe even an old picture of my own side ponytail!!!! Still love that lemon bolero!!! woo hoo!

  2. I think we should bring back the side pony. I definitely rocked it as often as possible as a kid.

    Ah, the eighties. Count me in!

  3. Hee, side ponytails! Though those are still better than the ‘paml tree’ hairstyle my parents forced me into when I was a wee one in the 80s. :p

  4. I used to wear a side ponytail with stirrup pants and big slouchy socks. Not sure if I could still rock that look, but some of those vintage patterns are amazing.
