Tracy at Crow's Feet Chic shared a retro crochet booklet's photos and her own crochet projects.
Pam at House of Hawthorne's picked up her crochet hook for a Valentine's Day chain stitch on her Facebook page. (There is also some talk of dog sweaters.)
Laurie, at I love a cloudy day shared a great painting, of course, and her sock knitting to keep her feet warm.
Vickie at Ranger 911 keeps the sock monkeys multiplying.
And, Dru at the Country Farm Home is busy, busy with rag rug weaving.
Me, I do know how to knit and crochet but haven't in years.
My Mom and I used to sell all sorts of vintage items on ebay including old patterns. I came across this "Weather Beaters" Coats & Clark, Red Heart, Book No. 266, Copyright 1977, knitting and crocheting booklet.
I'm not going to share the patterns since the 1977 copyright isn't THAT old, but I will show you what our ladies would be making this winter if it was 1977.
You know some of these styles are not that "out of style".
French is certainly "in" in blogland. Maybe not a beret though, huh?
Hmmm, are Granny Squares making a comeback?
I don't remember anybody with anything like this in the 70's, and believe me I was there.
You can't go wrong with slippers.
This cowl neck is sort of "in" if she loses the "Dorothy Hamill" cut. (I wouldn't go around calling it a dickie like the pattern says either)
Boots were hot in the 1970's too, even in gold with bright socks.
We had seven inches of snow in Northern Minnesota last night. I need my "Weather Beaters"!
