Whatever happened to...?

I have been trying for years to find a lost pattern. Once upon a time..long long ago the Toronto Star published a pattern advertisement. It was buried in the classifieds I think. You never knew what they were going to advertise. It could be a sewing pattern or knitting, embroidery, smocking what ever. My mother used to order the "Grace Knott Dots" for smocking from this advert. I ordered a lot of patterns for children's clothes as well. When Julia was a baby.....um 2007 minus 1976 equals ...
no than can't be right?...crap...sheesh...anyway like I said a long time ago I bought this crochet pattern. It was for a zig zag poncho. Which I crocheted in a denim blue yarn. I also changed the pattern into a cape and used reindeer horn buttons. I wore that cape till it fell apart. It was the handiest thing and because it was a neutral denim colour it went with everything with out screaming "Look at me I am a poncho". Every time the weather turns cool I think of that handy thing.

I have a picture of you wearing that when we went camping at Valens. (circa 1979) Too bad you don't that the pattern, can you imagine how great that would work up with Sirdar demium.

If I thought I could bear to see how young I look..lolol I would say send me the picture. I could probably write out the pattern by looking at the picture. Like I don't have a gazillion things on the go now. duh

How young you look in that picture? I can hardly look at it. Do you realize that I am older then you were in that picture? LOL You never want to see it now Do you? I'll try to scan it.

The summer of 1979 ranks as one of the "Best Times In My Life." Let's all sing,"Grandma's Feather bed!"
