My friend Jessica loaned me an amazing book she found at a used bookstore: The Baby Book of Knitting and Crochet. Published in 1948, it has roughly 150 patterns, many of which are still appealing to a modern audience (or, at least, to me). I've had the book on my nightstand for about two months now. My only problem is deciding which project to make first...

Feeling guilty about keeping the book so long, I recently went online to find my own copy. The author (Elizabeth Laird Mathieson) also wrote a The Complete Book of Crochet and The Complete Book of Knitting. Crochet is definitely dated, but there's hope--expect to see a few projects from the book in the near future. It includes this pattern that I made a few years back for Sophie.
