A world of small Christmas tales: a limp if loving star

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, 1970

I learned to crochet when I was in college, and I have no idea why, since I had plenty of studying to do! It might have been inspired by the hat Ali McGraw wore in Love Story, the movie of the season that every girl I knew cried through several times. We all admired her crocheted wool hat and her long dark hair.

And from that I moved on to making lace. Here is one of my first efforts, now limp with the years.
