Continuing on from my first vintage crochet podcast, here is the second in this series about the finished, current and future vintage crocheting projects I’m working on. In this episode I talk about the 1930s gingham jumper I featured on the blog a few weeks ago, a 1930s tailored cardigan in peach cotton that I’ve been working on for nearly a year, a pair of 1940s crochet espadrilles, a simple 1930s cardigan and a 1930s lace jumper.
Funnily enough, I featured all of these in my Sewing & Crocheting Plans for 2018 post back in early February. For once I’m actually sticking to my plans and not deviating at all, something that is very rare when it comes to my sewing!
And, as I’ve been coming across different patterns, I’ve already started planning my crocheting projects for next year. So far I have a 1930s swagger coat that Carla from Tiny Angry Crafter sent me, two 1930s short sleeve jumpers, one in grey and bright pink and one using original 1930s crochet cotton in the most beautiful ice blue and possibly a 1930s summer dress, although I can’t quite decide on which pattern to use. There’s just not enough time to crochet everything I want to make!
Anyway, I’ve added the links below to the different patterns, yarn and supplies I mention in the podcast. I do hope you enjoy it!
