The other day I was pottering around Ravelry and spied a few cool projects created from a 1981 Better Homes and Gardens book, Crocheting & Knitting. A quick google search pointed me in the direction of Ebay, where I found the book for a mere $4!! Add on $12 international shipping and that book was jumping in my cart.
It arrived a couple of days ago and I thought I'd pop in and share some photo goodness from inside. There are a good mix of crochet and knitting patterns inside and lots of variations - pillows, tablecloths, blankets, etc..
As far as the actual patterns go, I've read (on Ravelry) that many of them do have errors, but I'm okay with that. I bought the book mainly for it's charm and actually I've discovered that a lot of crochet patterns can be worked out by looking at the photo....well, so long as the photo isn't too complicated!
I'm finishing off my starburst crochet cushion tonight, which I'll share soon too! Are you crocheting anything this week?
