Those who know me, know I frequent charity shops, for old and vintage patterns to knit and crochet. I love any pattern pre or post war, and have a jolly old time, trying to work out ounces into grammes, as yarn was sold by the weight, also, I recommend a needle conversion chart. It’s not the first time i’ve confused an old 8 and a new 3mm needle or hook!
Apart from charity shops, street markets are great places to hunt down the old knitting & crochet books. Try not to laugh at the finished product or models pointing to a mountain on a painted back drop, just think of the techniques, that’s all you need. OK, a discreet giggle at some of the photos!A few months ago, I taught myself to (dry) needle felt, spin my own yarn, and recently, I learnt how to weave on a peg loom.
It’s been a journey, which i’ve enjoyed, and which I will continue to use throughout my creative crafting life!
So, until the next time. Keep crafting. Keep creating.
Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.
Peace n Love
