So, what do you think? Too much variety within one book?
When looking through this book, I came up with two questions to put on 'My Wondering' List.
- Was woven crochet really introduced in 1957, and
- Where did ladies purchase these magazines ... checkout lane at the grocery or in sewing shops, or ?
I've listed a number of the patterns above individually as noted by the links under the pictures.
Thanks for dropping by,
Lorrie, thanks for having this web site. I'm looking for some of these books, but now I'm not sure which ones. I have to go to work for now, but I'll browse later! Sarah BReplyDelete
