is it sad that I own many of those leaflets you share with us? :) and crochet swimwear was definitely huge back there!
For your other commenter who was asking about sizes, a 16 back then is something similar to a 10 or 12 today. Yup, those vintage patterns are not easy for us to make today!

@laurindar3 Absolutely!! I have to admit I didn't even think of scrapbooking books for the challenge but how fun would that be? I'd love any suggestions you have for books, I've started up a little list but I don't have much yet.

@laurindar3 If you already read a lot of yarn related books, then it's not as big a challenge for you as for perhaps others! I actually don't really read any yarn related books, so it's a challenge for me to both read those books & to review them. For you, perhaps, the challenge would be in the blogging/reviewing? Or perhaps you can spin it & read books by a different author, that are still yarnie?
Thanks for mentioning my blog, Kathryn - twice! :)

oooh! thanks! this is great, I've been wanting to buy your book, but I have SO many to read, I don't really buy books any more (I get too many to read from people wanting a review, for free). I very quickly snagged a copy & I'll mention your promo on my blog today, too :).

never heard of the site, but I just joined. It looks cool, though there's a few things I can already see that I don't like, but I'll have fun playing around with the site when I have more time. What time? LOL I'm always a month or two behind EVERYTHING! I hope I joined through you, I'm not sure if I did it right but hopefully you'll earn your modest fee!

Hey Kathryn - sorry for commenting, but I can't seem to get an email to you (it keeps coming back). Not sure if it's your end or my end! Anyway, I'd be happy to donate winner's choice of any 10 of my designs - feel free to divvy up the prizes however you'd like. I've put out a few new designs recently & have several more in testing :).

@CrochetBlogger You are probably right about the multi blogger aspect, but I'm not organized enough either!
7 months ago on Ha! Site Makes Fun of My Crochet Style (and 365 Update)
I was never sure how you managed to do your 365 posts as long as you had! I admit, I had thought of doing a spin on it, maybe do a crochet wearable once a week type of thing, but even that seemed like too much work. I wear crochetables all the time, but to have to actually take photos (which has to be outside, 'cause my apt is small & crapped & dark), find someone to take a photo or set up the self-timer, & write up a post, every week, on the same basic subject... so not me.
And kudos to you for handling that pinterest site so well. If someone did that to me, I'd cry.
@ModeOne_Author I do not, I'm afraid... and I don't know of anyone who does, either, I actually don't have much contact at all with other reviewers. But Goodreads has some wonderful forums for authors to meet reviews, so I'd try there! Good luck!

@winkieflash Yes, you guessed it! one of the reasons why I love this design so much is you make 3 different sized motifs - the larger squares which are about 8" or so, the long rectangles, & then 2 round grannies to fill in the holes.

@kirsten1 that would have been helpful, eh? LOL I'm making my favorite ever scrap afghan pattern from an older leaflet. It's called Floral Quilt by Sharon Volkman & it's from House of White Birches #101131, Scrap Yarn Afghans which was published in 1999.
@carol taylor thanks for your interest in this pattern, Carol! I'm sorry you are having problems with the pattern - here's some help for you.
Start the row as per the directions - basically, you are increasing in the beginning of the shawl, dc across the row until the chain sp in the middle of the row - in the spine of the shawl, if you will. Dc in the ch sp, V st in the next 2 dc - dc in the next ch sp, dc across until the end of the row, & then 2 dc in the ch sp & V st in the last st.
Hope this helps!
