Basis For Taste In Fashion with Fringe

"I base most of my fashion taste on what doesn't itch."
  Gilda Radner
 
Me too, Gilda!  No matter how fashionable, how warm, on sale or what color...WOOL is not on my fabric or yarn lists.  If I think about it, I could come up with several other reasons why I don't do 100% wool...besides ITCHY.
 
Gilda made that fashion statement back in the 1960's when about the only Wool I knew much about was Wooly Bully by Sam The Sham and the Pharaohs.
 


Some things never change...like who dictates what's in Fashion and what one should wear.  'Twiggy'...posed in Wooly Bully...was all the rage, and I do mean RAGE. I'll never forget my Dad's RAGE, "Sue, you may be a TWIG, but you are not going to school dressed like that Stick Girl."
  "Dad, it's Twiggy, and everybody's wearing mini's and boots."
...Yep, I got the classic reply...If everybody jumps off a cliff...yada yada!  I had to ditch the Mini, but got to keep the Fringed Boots!  Loved those Fringed Boots and Faux Leather Fringed Shoulder Bag.  Carried that Fringy Bag through all the years of HippieDom...read about that HERE. 
 
I've always liked Fringe.  My first Yarn Crochet Project was a Poncho.  One of the things I loved about that triangle poncho was that it had FRINGE all the way around.  Not all my Family members loved Fringe the way I did, but they acted really happy to receive a Fringed Poncho or a Fringed Scarf or Fringed Afghans for Christmas, Birthdays and National Fringe Day.
 
Now that you know how I feel about Fringe, you won't be surprised that it's still a
Focal Point in my Crochet today.
 Is it in FASHION today?
