Crochet for a new New Deal
As part of my ongoing efforts to stick my fingers in my ears and sing "la la la la la" very loudly and pretend Roosevelt is President...
I started making this hat in 2002. The pattern is from a booklet (price 10 cents!) published in 1936. I decided to use some very nice antique wool fingering yarn that I've had sitting around for some time. The yarn is medium grey with a blue tone and a kind of tweediness I like very much. Here's how far I got:
Then was interrupted by hand problems. Now I've got them more or less under control, I am back at it. I must practice back to the same gauge.
Added (and corrected): the tool is an antique bone crochet hook as well! It's a bit over 5 inches long, so you can get an idea of the scale in the photo.
