I have a number of those Coats and Clark pattern books. They used to sell them in Woolworths when I worked there after school around 69-70. I still have a pineapple pattern tablecloth to finish from one of those booklets. I'm just not much into crochet right now.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."--Margaret Mead
