Lucille's Shop

My mom worked at Lucille's yarn and fabric shop in Columbia in the early 1970s. After I told her about my newfound love for chunky, oversized crochet, she told me that the girls from Stephen's College would come in the shop to buy yarn. They were combining three or four strands to make super chunky afghans, ponchos and sweaters. So I guess there really is nothing new under the sun! If you were a Stephen's girl or remember Lucille's tell us your story!

  2. My grandmother went to Stephen's! However, I think that was way before Lucille's yarn shop! I love the picture- those girls are totally hip- I can see those outfits looking great still today!

  3. I agree, Erin! This sweater style never seems to go out of style - the 80's don't count.
