This morning Mum dug out all her old knitting patterns in search of a crochet poncho she wants me to make for Janae. Well, what a trove of gorgeous treasure dating as far back as 1964.
As I discussed in an earlier blog I am not really a knitter but I searched through each pattern, each women's magazine (with dates like July 1972 and costs of around 15 cents) searching for crochet patterns. I've found all sorts of exciting things. I've also found some that I will never make because, as much as retro is fun, it's not a look I'm going for.
I can't wait until the two project I have on the go now are complete and then I can start on something new and exciting. Hmmm, which to chose first.
