A couple of weeks ago, I found a whole collection of vintage crochet patterns at a yard sale. I'm slowly listing them in my Etsy vintage store because there's no way I can keep them all, but they are SO inspiring!
Yesterday I hopped on over to Michael's and aquired a skein of really, really, thin crochet thread. Actually, it is size 10, which is nowhere near the thinnest there is, but it's quite intimidating.
I also bought a set of 6 really skinny crochet hooks and, unbelievably, the correct size is not among them. I'm just going to have to wing it because there's no way I'm going back into town today.
The booklet it's sitting on is from 1913! Not sure I'll be able to follow the instructions but stay tuned.
