Vintage crochet is very dear to my heart. I swoon and drool at lovely, vintage, lace crochet clothes, but I have lost the patience of working with tiny hooks. I wonder if that would change over time? I'd like though to have something similar to these in my closet. Maybe I should transform some of my tablecloths and runners?
Another thing I've noticed is that I cannot stand written patterns. Strange coming this from me that earns money by writing patterns, but the patterns given in magazines, and those that I create are two completely different things.
Recently, a friend requested I look at a written pattern for a mesh dress, and I dropped it at row 3. It could have been an alien tongue if you ask me. I didn't have the nerves, the head, nor the inclination to continue deciphering it, and said that I'd rather make it up on my own, than burning and blowing my brains out with it.
So, I guess I'll just keep swooning and drooling over lace crochet blouse until something changes :)
