Macrame Accessories: Patterns and Ideas for Knotting
Submitter: Having seen the pictures, I am happy that I did not experience the 70s. I think that the pictures pretty much speak for themselves. But I will say that the guy in picture 5 does scare the crap out of me, I think its the hands on the hips…..
Holly: Wow. Just…wow.
How to Have Fun with Macrame
Submitter: Attached are scans of a 1974 macrame book that is still in circulation. People do actually check it out. I think because we have no up to date books on the subject. The colors remind me of a pair of polyester pants I had when I was ten years old. They had fish on them. Oh, the colorful memories.
Holly: You have no up to date books on the subject because there aren’t any! This is cataloged as a children’s book. Why on earth would a public library hang on to a craft book that is 36 years old? If (and it’s a very big if…) macrame is making a come back, buy a new book on the topic. The people in these drawings are wearing bell bottoms and smocks, for pete’s sake!

Modern? I beg to differ. Check out these numbers! I wish they’d quit putting other peoples’ faces on my body! She does have the longest neck EVER…kind of looks like a photo edit job.
