I have so many books already, more than I'll read in my lifetime I fear, so I now contain my search to old knitting & crochet patterns & any irresistible old craft books, if they happen to throw themselves in front of me.
My favourites are 60/70's crochet patterns, but of course tea cosy patterns will make me flip out as well, as do old bag patterns, well I could keep going on & on lol.
I'm knitting 2 new tea cosies as wips at the moment, but I keep getting drawn back to my "new" patterns.
I really want to do this retro cushion cover,
Granny Squares & Needlework
but I can't get this next cushion out of my head, so I have to crochet it. It's in my memories, I do believe one of my grandmothers had one just like it - not bright like this one, but lovely old vintage colours of green & cream. I vaguely remember it sitting on her lounge, along with an old ripple stitch throw.
I still have a bit to do, but I'll have it finished for the next blog....
