I just knew it was going to be solid gold before I even opened the cover.
And open the cover I did to a gasp of wonder! The first page is our cover bloke, he’s replaced his pipe with a bunch of balloons and is frolicking in a meadow in crochet long johns.
The whole book is very Barbara and Tom from The Good Life. If Tom ever wore a crochet coat and danced with his goat …….
It’s not all frolicking blokes, like this handy bit about re-using yarn and how to get the kinks out. That’s my kind of 70s thinking. (By the way, you unravel directly onto your hands/elbows and secure the hank with 4 loose ties. Wash as you would the garment and hang to dry away from direct heat lightly weighted with books or water bottles to remove kinks.)
Knew it was gold!
