It’s almost Halloween. If you really want to get back to 1978 and stick with the holiday theme here are some of the horror movies that came out in 1978:
November Top 40 that year included some classics like;
War and Remembrance by Herman Wouk was in the number one slot for best sellers in November. I've read two of the books on the top 15 for fiction; Illusions by Richard Bach and The World According to Garp by John Irving.
If Life is a Bowl of Cherries – What Am I Doing in the Pits? by Erma Bombeck was in its 27th week on the non-fiction best seller list. Mommie Dearest by Christina Crawford moved into the #1 spot for the week of November 26.
The November 1978 Workbasket Magazine had five crochet patterns; a sweater and shoulder purse, a square doily, decorative muffler and your two choices for the month; a long-legged clown or the crochet hat/scarf set.
The Long Legged Clown is described as a “darling, soft toy clown.” It calls for several colors of worsted weight yarn, a size J hook, felt, glue and “ample stuffing”.
The Crochet Hat/Scarf Set also uses worsted weight yarn and Mohair. The Mohair is used as the main part of the scarf and the motifs are done in regular weight yarn. If this is chosen I might choose to make the one of the two and would not use Mohair.
Let me know which one you think I should make this month!
I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns. I'm a member of Crochet Twin Cities, the local Crochet Guild.
