I'm a super-obsessed pattern follower. Although I normally add/subtract things to make the pattern more to my liking, I haven't been able to get rid of that security blanket of having a pattern in front of me. Anyway, because of that I'm always on the lookout for new patterns. Today, I went to this used bookstore in my hometown, because I'm home for christmas. I wasn't even sure if this place was still open, but thank goodness it was! I found a few very nice books that I'm excited about, and a few that were only a quarter and are worth a look.
I got this magazine and another called "Women's Circle" Crochet that is from 1989. I'm not sure if either book will have anything too useful in them, but they were 75 cents together, so it's worth a try.
This book has a pattern for a plaid afghan, and an argyle one. I've been dying to do some plaid and/or argyle designs.
This book has a pattern for this tablecloth (see below)
Which I LOOOOOVE and can't wait to make for spring. Here is a close up of the flowers:
I'm excited, I had to share.
