Did people stop wanting to learn to knit/crochet in the late 80's? :?? Because you'd think so due to the fact that the 3 learn to knit/crochet kits I've bought have all had books that are copyrighted around 87. And even if the copyright wasn't in there, you could tell by the patterns. You'd think they'd update these things a bit.

:rofl: I suspect that knitting techniques haven't changed, so the how-to books you bought didn't update. I think that's why the Stitch n' Bitch books became so popular.

Some of those patterns are pretty scary! I've been trying to find a pattern for a pullover sweater that doesn't have three miles of ease, and it's hard to find one that isn't huge or teeny-tiny.
