CALLING ALL CROTON KNITTERS:
Introducing a new series here at Everything Croton: THE VINTAGE KNITTER! - We got the idea when Hallie Flanagan Wolfe of hallieflanaganwolfegardens.com, recently donated a small cache of dogeared but very interesting vintage knitting and crochet magazines from the 1940's through the 1960's. Some of these patterns are simply gorgeous!
Our fourth installment in the series is a KNITTED AFGHAN, 1942. Click on the photo.

CROTON HOPES MAINIERO ERA CONTINUES TO CARRIER DOME, JOURNAL NEWS 11/18/11--LINK IS ONLY GOOD FOR A FEW WEEKS--CROTON-ON-HUDSON — When in the history of Croton-Harmon football has the quarterback been so lucky? Jesse Mainiero's spring and summer workouts pulsate at an intensity all their own thanks to some special company. Just consider that Mainiero has not one but three Division I players living on his block. The Croton senior realizes his good fortune and takes full advantage — especially because there's one player who can fully understand his situation. It also happens to be his brother, Nick.

If you’ve never used Krausbullion, we hope you’ll give it a try in your next crafting project. (We were turned on to it by local resident, Vinny L.) In a nutshell, it is a highly crimped wire that when stretched, well, it’s magical. The original Krausbouillion is made in Germany and Austria. Silvercrow Creations “etsy” shop has krausbullion that is made by a modernized process that plates copper wire, so it is less expensive. It's quite beautiful and lends old world elegance to any project. (It was used a lot in antique ornaments, especially dresdens.) And Silvercrow has a really wide range of colors not often found elsewhere. You’ll be surprised how far a little piece goes when stretched. Click on the photo for an example of how it’s used, then see the links below:
Oh how we miss the old Dennison and Eureka stickers:
