Crochet circa 1994 - Weekend Crochet

Weekend Crochet 1994 features 65 easy projects with an heirloom look. Toys, sweaters, afghans, and lace. 


I wonder what intrigued me about these magazines that I actually purchased them. In the case of this 1994 Weekend Crochet magazine, I do not recall making any one of these projects.  

Looking through the magazine today, I find it hard to believe anyone would actually want some of these projects - but I guess to those who love to crochet (me included), we'll try to make anything by crocheting it. On the other hand some of the projects here are timeless. 

Somewhere in my linen closet I still have a pillowcase or two with crocheted lace trim, crocheted by my mother, or grandmother -- not sure who. Oh to have the time for these projects.  

As far as afghans go -- they really never go out of style except maybe for the colours chosen.
