Christmas Crochet Booklet

Christmas Crochet

This is a booklet that my mother gave me from her crocheting days. I adore the pillows! They're just too cute. I don't know if I'd make them, though, only because I'm against knick-knack things and I think that holiday decorations like this are knick-knacky. We don't have storage for these kinds of things. But, but... They're so cute! What's a girl to do?

Other photos of the booklet are on my flickr. Follow the picture above to see the rest. The cute little package decorations (shown on the other cover) are also very cute. I could totally see making a bunch of these for presents!

And here's a gratuitous picture of Mycroft, the cat:

Haha, I like the kitty picture trend going on here. Gorgeous cat.

I've been trawling through the internet for the last week looking for Xmas Patterns, and wish I had that book!!

That is all sort of kitschy goodness. But I know what you mean--I'm not a tchotchke, cluttery kind of person. Love the kitty picture!

I love vintage patterns! A 70's poncho pattern got me back into yarn crafts several years ago. Everyone else was paying $30-$40 for a trendy spring poncho and I made one out of yarn I had laying around there.
