More Hands...

I find old 'how-to' instructions fascinating.These how-to-crochet drawings came from a vintage book of mine.I scanned the pics and grouped them together,
then I gave the nails a colourful manicure.I love the graciousness of the hands and the sense of gentle movement.

Nice to see you twice on one day!
Lovely pics.
I immediately noticed the "nail varnish" - you tickle me pink (-:
Maybe if I am patient I can also looks gracious while crocheting - I always have one finger that sticks up in the air...

These illustrations can't possible make me more dexterous or coordinated, can they? They sure are purdy, though.
