Lacy Crochet

Aach! The glare on the photo - it gets so dark here so early! This is a page from Lacy Crochet originally put together by the Japanese magazine Shufu-to-Seikatsu Sha, and now translated into English and published by Chronicle Books. I found it on the used shelf at Moe's.

Above, if you can see through the glare, is a lovely crochet hook folder and scissors case. Crochet + Linen or Felt = Classy. I'm thinking about using linen yarn with linen and thin tweedy yarn with wool felt or leftover silk laceweight with folded rice paper (library card and book list holder). The scissors case would look so cool out of leather or suede.

Reading your posts is like having someone else capture and record the the kind of thing that goes on in my head every day!

I love your blog!

(BTW When my daughter was about five or six we memorized "The Owl and the Pussycat" together - at 17 she can still repeat it from memory - we always roll the "r" at the beginning of "Runcible"!)

Beautiful. Please keep us posted on how they look when finished in your yarns and fabrics.
