Telling secrets

Here's a little confession - I am seriously addicted to bidding for vintage crochet (and some knitting) patterns on E-bay. to be precise. The US market is a positive treasure-chest of wonderful patterns and books from the 1940's and 50's with a heavy european influence. If you're interested in the buzz around the couture exhibition at the V & A, you'll recognize the wonderful design that goes into many of these patterns; and they're there for you to make!!!

Now for the secret!! In order to get me over this addiction I thought part of my 12-step programme (or maybe 1-step!) would be to tell you of my favourite 'sellers'. This is a little piece of gold for you if you really want to get into crocheting clothes for yourselves so don't miss it.





There - it's done - I feel soooo much better.

Let me know if you have any success!!!
