I have an attraction to old how-to books [especially crochet ones]
I love recycling!
I am using a pattern from this vintage crochet book as a guide to make a hat. The skeins of yarn that I am crocheting with are video tape! I unwound the reel, then rewound the tape into skeins, which I twisted to make them crinkly. This makes the tape much easier to work with.
Now I am looking for some Milliner's wire. I'll let you know how it turns out!
