This morning on my commute to work, I came across “crocheted curtains” in All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy. Here’s the passage:
There were a few last warm days yet and in the afternoon sometimes he and his father would sit in the hotel room in the white wicker furniture with the window open and the thin crocheted curtains blowing into the room and they’d drink coffee and his father would pour a little whiskey in his own cup and sit sipping it and smoking and looking down at the street
I love Cormac’s language. It’s thick with Faulkner and heat and commands such attention.
Here are some images of crocheted curtains that I found around the internet (and I’m pretty jealous, because these are awesome):
Sunny days (that seem so far away, http://onceuponapinkmoon.blogspot.com/2013/05/flower-power-valance-tutorial.html):
Zelda remix (not a curtain, but I couldn’t resist):
I’ll have to make a mental note on learning how to filet crochet.
Peace be with everyone!
