I have so enjoyed looking at the funny things we "oldies" used to crochet in the olden days on Lucy's lovely blog. I used to love to crochet and made lots of mad things....vests and ponchos etc. My mum was a wonderful at knitting and crocheting and used to even make us slippers. I have a half finished pair of her slippers in bright orange I should finish and wear in her memory. I also used to make things for the girls to wear and some blankets too. Here are a few pictures. I loved that sleeping bag Amy has on. The pictures are a bit grainy as I had to take pictures of the photos.
Can't believe my babies are all grown up and married. Aren't we young!!!!! I've got curly (pretend) hair! This was one of my favourite garments. Amy has on a homespun, crocheted jacket. It was so warm and cosy. Wasn't she just such a sweetie?
I also made this rug in the homespun wool. It is folded over a cane chair normally.
This is the granny square blanket I made in my 20's. I must admit we don't use it as there are quilts to use these days but I still quite like it.
