grammaire du crochet

I was going to post a photo of my multiple WIPs of the moment (dispatching those much delayed orders finally) but the weather is so gloomy that there wasn't enough light this morning. So instead, to brighten this day a little, I'll post some pictures of a vintage crochet magazine that my friend S. has lent me a few weeks ago. It's called La Grammaire du crochet (#75) and it's a swiss magazine, so it's bilingual. Some patterns are not so bad, but others ... well, let's just say I hope there won't be a revival of those.

I'll let you judge for yourself. These are some of the nicer ones ...







but for a sexy outfit, how about this ?



and la piéce de résistance, this one just cracked me up



somehow, I don't think I could convince A. to wear one of these ...

Realmente...não se percebe! Que bem que ele ficaria com uma camisolita assim... eu, tenho cá para mim, que ele só disse que não queria para não te dar trabalho...
se fosse a ti, fazia uma e oferecia-lhe no natal, o que é que achas???
Magnífico;D

Até gosto das mantas em crochê (que cheirinho a anos 80). Mas realmente essa camisolinha "masculina" é de chorar... a rir ;-p

Eu gosto da saia! E já prometi ao Z. que lhe ia fazer uma camisola/cortina para lhe dar no Natal! Achas que posso pedir-te o padrão? ;)

Finally I found a person with the same interests such as "crochet". I confess I don't make crochet in every places, only at home (it may seem something of an old lady...)
I would like to invite you to visit my blog and see the firts bags I made. Now I'm preparing different things that I'd publish soon.
Nice to meet you!
