Knit, Crochet, Embroider and Braid with Aunt Lydia’s Heavy Rug Yarn!

It’s here! It’s here! American Thread Co’s Star Book No. 173.

Turns out the slippers in this particular pamphlet — see spread two and the top shelf on the cover — are not the same as those that got passed around as “Tootsie Toasters.” These are two-tone, and either crocheted or a combination of knit and crochet. I kind of like them. I definitely like the Diamond Rug.

And don’t pretend you don’t want matching crocheted French Poodle covers for your hairspray, toilet paper and Scotch bottle. Nobody’s buying it.

    • Well NOT the burlap dress, that’s for sure. (I’m itchy just thinking about it.) If I could tap back into my old crochet skills, I might try that two-tone knit-crochet slipper. Not in black and cerise polyester, mind you.

      Aren’t you sad you don’t have your curlers anymore to carry around in that case?
