A place where I can discuss crochet, knitting, sewing, and other interests.

Found this pile of "vintage"(heh, heh) magazines that I had saved all these years, most are from from the early 1980's. My MIL taught me to crochet when I was 15 (in 1974) and first started dating DH in high school. (Yes, its true! Can you believe I have actually been stuck with known him for 32 years!? Most of my life!) I would just learn whatever stitch she taught me, and then make whatever afghan she was working on at the time. I don't remember teaching myself to read crochet patterns until I was an old married gal of 2o or 21 or thereabouts. So I don't think I probably have many magazines any older than the early 80's in my crochet pattern stash. It is fun looking back through and seeing patterns that are becoming popular again, like the granny and ripple afghans. Yes, my photo is awful with the glare, but I thought maybe you could still see the afghan, anyway.
I have been working on a granny ripple lately. Here is an updated pic of SOMEBODY who likes my afghan!
The pattern for the Chicken Potholder pictured above can be found in a booklet called "The Ultimate Book of Potholders", issued by Annie's Attic. I recently found a free pattern online, here, that is very similar.
