Reading Corner Thursday

Vintage Crochet by Susan Cropper has some very unique items in it ranging from  household items to clothing. I truly enjoy finding interesting crocheting books, because as I believe I’ve said before, crocheting doesn’t seem to get the effort or attention that knitting does. Plus, when I spend time with a book like this it inspires me to look at things in a different way.

One of the projects in this book is the Papillon Canopy and in all honesty, I don’t know that I would have thought of crocheting a canopy  for anything by my bed and now I’m planning an attack on my very sunny deck. It would be much easier to do this than  to find a fly to shield me and the outdoor crafting that goes on through the warmer months. I expect that this book  will become a favorite source of inspiration and a go-to source for some very nice sweater patterns.
