I haven't heard about any changes in the Caron lines. I do know that Spinrite purchased the factory in North Carolina where Caron yarns were manufactured, hiring back many of the Caron workers. So, that leads me to believe that the quality will stay exactly as it always has been.

I have to email and ask. Haven't had time lately. We've been busy planning a funeral that will take place in the next few weeks. Also dealing with the news media. My mother's cousin was killed in Korea in 1950. His body was just identified through DNA and will be returned home soon for a military funeral.

Oh, my. I can't imagine what that's like. My sympathy for you and your relatives. I hope in some way, at the end of the media barrage, that knowing he was IDed helps.

The worsed weight Phentex is a #4. There's no gauge listed. No hook given. The original hook must have come with the kit. I tried the pattern with doubled worsted weight. They're gigantic. Going to try a single strand of worsted weight next and see what I can come up with. Does anybody have any clue what yarn and hook would be used for this? Would love to post this online. Ravelry doesn't have the crochet version and I'm not finding it anywhere else. I believe, from what I've read online, that the Phentex company, unregistered the kit in 1984 and this would make the pattern public domain?
did you find a pattern for the crocheted minute slippers? if so could you tell me where I can find/purchase it? thanks

I have the pattern. It came with the package. I tried to find out if the pattern was copyrighted but no luck. I'm not able to share patterns with anyone unless the copyright ran out or it's in public domain. I do know the kit was from the mid 1970's. If anybody knows if this is public domain now, I would appreciate knowing for sure.

thanks for getting back to me. I found the kit for sale on ebay.com so I think I will go that route.

Great news! And my, that was timely, wasn't it? I hope you can get your pattern for a good price.
