The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle.

Eight Sided Pot Holder

January 3, 2017

The blog post that I did about getting ready for 1942 had this photo about an eight sided crochet pot holder.

I want to thank all of you that searched for a pattern.  Last night I received an email from Kathy in Japan and she found a pattern very similar and very vintage.  The only changes it will need will be to the color of the threads.  The design is very close.  Also the round side ring.

Here is the link to a free crochet website that has this pattern. 


Again thank you all for looking and thank you Kathy for sending the link so we can share this vintage pattern with others.
