The patterns were free as the LYS closed. So I got quite a few. Plus, they all know I like the old patterns, and they set them aside especially for me… Oh, and I had a bunch already too. Time to start weeding out!
Here’s what I’m thinking…
This can be a little send off to Libby. Send in a comment with wishes for Libby, good memories if you know her, thoughts about retail in general (you don’t have to be nice about this one). Let me know which of these give away things you are interested in, individually (e.g., #27), as a group (e.g., crochet), whatever. I’ll leave this up for a week or so, until Nov 3. If only one person is interested in any particular item, they get it. If multiple people are interested, I’ll do a random draw per item.
It’s all in my flickr set. There are a lot of pics, so thumbnails here, embiggen to see or go over to the flickr set.

A friend recently made a vest much like the red one, though shorter, out of one skein of Amy’s chunky yarn. And, my hair was a bit like the blonde’s…um, still is, but ever so much more current! I was never fashionable though.
