500 Crochet Stitches
So, thanks to the bunny with the loops over at lupinbunny who posted about the Mon Tricot 1500 Knitting Stitch encyclopedia she purchased, I could not help myself & searched for mon tricot in ebay.. what do I find?? I find myself bidding on the book you see in the pic! I so hope I get it..

In other news, is it so wrong to love and want to make that crochet dress ???? what's happening to me?? Once upon a time I would've laughed my ass off at this.. I'm not sure whether to bid on this 'mon tricot vintage pattern book' just for this one pattern... I'm mean really, would I ever wear it???

The short n sweet bolero is slowly getting there, it's so exciting to see it transform.. I'm really getting into crochet, it's fantastic, it grows so much faster than my knitting projects! Michelle, I will teach you, no probs! Hey if I can learn to crochet from the Happy Hooker, anyone can! Today, heading off to Busselton, a family weekend away.. hmm, nice. We'll see. Hopefully I'll get lots of crocheting in :)

it's kind of cute, if you leave off the teletubby-style square on the bodice.
but not NEARLY as nice as the free dress pdf from interweave crochet *purrrrs* i don't/ can't crochet, but covet that dress.
