I had another great Listia find. This time a set of Crochet! magazines from 2003-2007. I have to admit I have a certain weakness for crochet books and magazines. I like to look at all the pretties and think it might be cool to make this or that. But I really have come to the realization that I’m not really into “fashion” crochet, despite my desire to make clothing for myself. This magazine has a lot of fashion type things–frilly sweaters, flowy wraps, flirty skirts, kid’s clothing. But it’s not really my thing though I appreciate the effort that went into them.
I guess I’ll just stick to seeking out my vintage crochet magazines and books with all those granny square based things. I think I like the beauty to be found in the geometry of an object made up of squares and triangles. Or varying the look of such a thing with color and yarn choices. Maybe I’m just stuck in the past!
