In the last several days, I've been on a "thinning" binge. It all began with my closet, as I went through all my clothes and removed the ones that 1) didn't fit anymore or 2) were never worn. Then, the urge to de-clutter spilled over into other parts of the house. One of the things I came across was a notebook of some of my mother's knitting and crochet patterns. She was a relentless note-taker, and I'm holding on to some of the patterns because she wrote in the margins. I like to keep her handwriting.
A couple of things I came across I know I'll never use:
Since I don't crochet, these deserve a home with someone who does. Do any of you want these, or maybe know someone who could use them? If so, let me know in the comments. I guess it's going to have to be first commenting, first claimed.
You'll note that both the booklets cost a dime. Most of the prices on her patterns are that crazy. I never told her exactly what yarn and patterns cost "nowadays," because she wouldn't have believed the prices and would have strongly disapproved of them.
