This is the book that inspired me to take up crochet, lo, those many years ago, and I'm from a family of knitters. The yarns aren't made anymore (hardly any of the yarn companies are around anymore) but the colors and projects are still inspiring, classic interpretations of traditional granny squares -- and hint at the beginnings of the "not so traditional" school of current crochet popularity! The book contains my first picture of a thread crochet motif made with larger yarn -- an idea that contemporary crochet designer Doris Chan has taken to great heights. Descriptions of yarn weight and design intentions can help readers find currently-available materials. Hook size is another issue: I had to check a hook size list to see what "size 00" meant in crochet hook sizes that I know (turns out I know that as a C hook). By today's technical standards, the patterns are simplistic (they rely on brand recognition of yarn used; do not include the yardage or stitch gauge beyond intended size of squares; no listing of special techniques), but then these are *granny squares* - they're supposed to be easy to memorize, portable, thrifty and quick to make. (And now I have a new appreciation for the trouble current designers go to to furnish the facts.) Hookers Rule -- see you on Ravelry. Thanks, - Julia
