~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
You can find the latest yarn along here.
On top of that, you can barely see my 1950's style cardigan (the green). This is the back, and it is still in progress.
On top, is a crocheted lace glove. A lovely lady gave me an old pattern- no idea where it originally came from, but the exact same pattern can be found in this book. It describes it as 1950's, so I am guessing that is when this pattern came from! It is a little complicated to make, and it is imperative you get the gauge right - I am using thread which is a little bigger than the original (since I can't find the original size) and the smaller hook size- I decided to stick with that because I have VERY long fingers, and although my hands are not very large, I have to have large gloves just so the fingers fit. Or have the fingers end 3/8" above the end of my fingers!
Here is a collar, 1930's style belt and some matching sleeve decorative trim. I adapted a pattern I found on Ravelry for a crocheted Peter Pan style collar. I added shells at the edge for fun. The trim on the sleeves I made up. The dress it is on desperately needed something on the bodice (it is a 1940's pattern). I opted initially for a collar. When I got lazy, I went with this one - which was a lot quicker to make! I then decided to actually add sleeve trim (as the pattern had suggested) and it helped a lot too. Finally I made a belt from a 1930's pattern- aren't the rings really cool? I made it a little thinner than the original. But I thought, that just maybe, you might like to have the pattern too!
You should be able to click on it and save it to your machine. It is a pretty easy pattern!
