Sharing Some Vintage Crochet Books, and A Bird’s Eye View of My Library.


While I was busy getting my crochet and knitting books all put nicely on a relocated shelf the other day, I came across a few books I had totally forgotten about!  It was like Christmas all over!  So, I thought I would share just a few of the nice surprises I came across.  In particular today . . . vintage crochet books.  \o/

I made a table runner with this pattern years ago and gave it as a Wedding Gift.  Now, I think I would like to make another!

And here, a bird’s eye view of my collection . . .

My library is beginning to be a little bit overwhelming.  I am trying to learn how to say “NO” to myself.  😀  I think, just one more Crochet Bible of Stitches and I’ll be good.

Some days I sit for hours just going through my library.  Some days it’s books . . . some days magazines.  Most every work day I pick one or two to take to work with me.  I enjoy taking time during my breaks and lunch to study patterns and stitches.

Well, thanks for stopping by!  You know how I love to share!
