Grandma’s Stash and Patterns

Earlier this month I posted about my Grandma’s stash and WIPs, well yesterday I finally sorted through the bin that had some yarn and the crochet patterns in it and had a few surprises. I also found the rest of her hooks, including her steel hooks. The major find was an old steno notebook that my Grandma had hand-written a couple of patterns in and an old envelope addressed to her from her sister stamped 1971 with a hand-written slipper pattern in it. There were many issues of the Quick & Easy Crochet digest with dates ranging from the early 80’s to the late 90’s (that I’ve seen so far) and a few issues of Workbasket Magazine. There were also 2 folders filled with loose patterns and a few hardcover pattern books with mainly afghan patterns. There were also what seemed to be tons of empty yarn labels scattered about too.

I moved all of the patterns and books into a smaller bin and condensed all of the yarn into the larger bin. The hooks will be stored with all of my hooks.
