Hello, I knew there was a place I could share my joy.  I found these wonderful books a few weeks ago.

They are called "de fil en aiguille" from 1975 and some are from 1979. There is everything in them. Crochet, Knitting, Macramé, Embroidery, sewing. From clothing to toys. Here are two example:

This is macramé...nice


And this is crochet...very nice


I really like the crochet capes but I'm a beginner crocheter and that is a big project...maybe someday I'll get the nerves to go it...but there is a problem..although I'm a french speaking Canadian I learned to crochet with the internet in English terms...so even for me the pattern is hard to follow. I thing I'll have to translate it before!! Shocked

Anyhow, I'm really happy I found these books, and for .99$ each.

Thanks for looking  Grin

Honestly, it never occured to me, that macramee could be used for clothing. But this Bolero looks really nice ... maybe sans les fringes.

Great find, I'm jealous  Wink

Oh I recognise those capes. I have a book called - um, something along the lines of "Golden Hands book of knitting and crochet" (I'm not at home so I can't check exactly what the title is). It used to be my mum's and it has those capes in.

I also have the dressmaking book in the same series that I picked up in a charity shop that I stopped in while waiting for a ferry on one of the Scottish Islands - however hard I tried to explain, my boyfriend of the time just didn't quite understand my joy at finding it.

Yes, I recognise those pictures as being from "Golden Hands". It was a craft magazine. I live in Australia, Melb, and you can get vintage binders for them too. I saw some recently in Croydon Vinnies I think (or Brotherhood of St Lawrence). The one around the corner from Main St near the park,...if anyone's interested.

Anyway. I've got some great stuff I really aught to post. I need to learn how to use the scanner.
