Soul Sister & A Cookbook




I cannot find the source for this doily graph so I'm posting it here. If anyone knows who wrote the pattern or where it was published, I'll be happy to update this post with the info.

Info on this one:
My Name for It:  Soul Sister
Thread:  Aunt Lydia's #10 in Antique Rose and White
Hook:  1.65 mm
Measurement:  24 inches
Graph did not come with the rose pattern.



I'm going back to crocheting my blue blanket squares now. What are you working on?


READING:

Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros

A Cookbook with lots of commentary in normal-size print and the recipes in the tiniest and faintest print you can imagine. And it's not just cuz my eyes are old. It really is teeny-tiny print. I have no idea what they were thinking when they were making up this book. I'm sure several people had to approve of the print. If I were the publisher/editor/author, I would fire them all.

Example:

The recipe ingredients are in the upper-right of each recipe.
Can you see that? Ridiculous!
I'm sure there are some good recipes in this book, but I can't get past that tiny writing. I'm glad I got this really cheap used on Amazon.


Have a Happy Day, Girlfriends.

Wowwy Pammy Sue! Your doily is a STUNNER! I love the second photo of it. Your crochet is beautiful. I usually won't crochet a pattern unless it's a graph. I can't stand following written instructions. I'll try to wing it first. I'm not stupid...just lazy :) Happy Saturday, penny x

Gorgeous doily, Pammy Sue :-) I'm still learning to read graphs so that's Greek to me. Glad you made something beautiful with it. Sorry about your cookbook :-( Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Oh wow Pammy Sue who would have thought that it would turn out like that, I love your flower in the centre that's a lovely touch, thank you for the graph. You will have to have a magnifying glass right next to that cookbook so that you can see the print. I am still making baby hats, but I think I am just about done with them now and I have actually started making something for myself, I will probably hate it when it's done I usually do hate anything I make for myself. :)

Wow! That is a beautiful doily Pammy Sue! I love how you changed the color-and the colors you've chosen. Wonderful! The cookbook does look like it has problems. Not the brightest way to print it, but I agree with Teresa. That bread looks delicious.
Blessings,
Betsy

What a wonderful, wonderful doily, Pammy Sue! So beautiful ♥. I agree with you about the book's font, it's really much too small! Too bad, the book looks so good apart from that. I'm working on a yellow crochet scarf at the moment, a color I have not used for an accessory for me up to now. Many thanks for your comment on the green and red scarfs! The stitch is only a one row repeat and grows quickly :-). Happy Sunday! Nata xxx

LindaCrochets ~ I figured it was from one of the foreign magazines on Picasa, but I don't have a clue which one. If you can tell me the name and issue #, I'll add it to my post.
