Vintage Resources

As I mentioned before, I am learning how to knit and how to crochet.

Recently, I found some really interesting vintage resources.  First is this McCall's crochet book. 

 This edition was published in 1968.  There are easy to follow demonstrations for all sorts of stitches and techniques. 

And plenty of patterns for dresses and sweaters...

Second is this Vogue knitting magazine.  This is the Fall/Winter 1986 issue. 

it is full of great knitting information and plenty of patterns:

Both of these resources are so helpful and are really fun to read!

Lovely vintage books Kim. I learnt to crochet from a book like that in the 1960's, when I was small! My auntie taught me - no one then used wool or yarn - just fine cotton thread! I still have the booklet - it's one of my treasures. So glad you're having fun with your crochet and knitting.x

Jagodaj - Thank you!
Eglea - Thank you! It has been fun so far :)
Jules - Thanks! Yes, I think I know the thread you are talking about. It made for very fine crochet work too. That is so great that you still have that book :)
