Taking a step into blogging… because the world needs another vintage knit/crochet/and so on blog. Maybe more antique than vintage since my time periods of choice tend to be 1910s, 20s, 30s. I’ll probably post things I’m working on, things I’ve learned, patterns and my attempts at translating bizarre old Victorian patterns into something comprehensible. Currently, among other things, I’m working my way through The Crochet Book, by Eléonore Riego de la Branchardière (which has amazingly clear instructions for a book published in 1847).
