Featured Instagrammer

This week’s wonderful featured Instagrammer is @lyndapc. She describes herself on Instagram: “Sports historian and writer at large, crochet-reading through the world from a little corner of Australia, cup of tea and a camera always nearby.” In addition to her beautiful crochet, you’ll find that her feed has lovely flower photos and occasional cute kiddos. Always a treat to look at. Here are some of the things she’s shared with us recently:

My Crochet on Instagram

This week I continued to share the covers of the vintage Needlecraft magazines from 1919 – almost 100 years old! There are some great crochet patterns in these magazines that look totally contemporary.

I received a lovely gift package from Flo that included some of her grandmother’s vintage crochet doilies and a cowl wristers set:

I’m working on a chunky green v-stitch blanket (three-stranded):
