Reading Corner Thursday

This week’s vintage treat is Vintage Knit Knacks by Sue Culligan. In this book Ms. Culligan takes vintage items and recreates them in modern terms. One project in particular which caught my eye is the Necklace on page 20 made up of I-cord. She writes that the inspiration for this project was an anchor braid rope. Brilliant!

Another of the projects is a flower pot cuff with a leaf pattern which tickled me. I’m looking at my pots with a new eye, so to speak. If you are looking for some unique project with a stylish feel this book will set you on the right path.
