It’s here! It’s here! American Thread Co’s Star Book No. 173.
Turns out the slippers in this particular pamphlet — see spread two and the top shelf on the cover — are not the same as those that got passed around as “Tootsie Toasters.” These are two-tone, and either crocheted or a combination of knit and crochet. I kind of like them. I definitely like the Diamond Rug.
And don’t pretend you don’t want matching crocheted French Poodle covers for your hairspray, toilet paper and Scotch bottle. Nobody’s buying it.
So what do you fancy making?
Well NOT the burlap dress, that’s for sure. (I’m itchy just thinking about it.) If I could tap back into my old crochet skills, I might try that two-tone knit-crochet slipper. Not in black and cerise polyester, mind you.
Aren’t you sad you don’t have your curlers anymore to carry around in that case?
