From Knitty.com:

Think back to when blow dryers and curling irons were yet to be invented…when looking your best for a night out on the town required the following ritual: in the morning, you’d wash your hair and put curlers in, carry on about your business around town doing your errands, come home and then transform yourself to look your very best for the party.
The irony…your obsession with looking beautiful made you overlook (or perhaps ignore) that all the townspeople that at the party already saw you during the day with a head full of curlers. Of course, they probably looked pretty much the same as you did at the time.
Reminiscent of that time, this “housewife” wig is a result of my experimentation with the tuck stitch mixed with a little bit of my sense of humor.
