Okay, Let's Crochet!

How serendipitous! After having recently posted some drool-worthy images of 30s crocheted caps and such, I came across an awesome post devoted to a step by step visual crocheting tutorial over at The Further Adventures of a Thrifty Mrs!  Once you've got the basics of the chain stitch down, here is a vintage pattern to try out.

Anyone who uses "serendipitous" is a good egg in my book. Hugs, Mrs. Baroness...

hehe..my pleasure. I know the feeling of having a million other pots on the boil. I always bite off more than I can chew, but SOON I'll have idle hours to while away with the help of knitting and crocheting patterns!

Darlene, you're the sweetest ;)

thanks, vampire! These are my two favourite images of all time.

Big Mama: I hear ya! I should have a 30s dress knit by about 2020! haha!
