before giving it to me, she read me the introduction:
Today, when crochet is enjoying such unprecedented vogue,
it is natural that many woman of all ages wish to become
accomplished in this fascintatng craft. Crochet has a variety of
uses and is now as popular in the field of high fashion as it is
in the adornment of the home...
i am not quite sure where this pattern for crocheted ties sits:
high fashion anyone?
after much book related merriment, i do have to say that in the end the book spoke truth. my friend decided it was time "to become accomplished in this fascinating craft" herself. so i pulled out my spare hook and off we went... slowly slowly, i am turning all of my friends into crochet addicts. does that mean i have become a crochet-dealer of sorts?
