CROCHETED SLINGS??? & other things

I set out to find a crochet pattern for a sling for my broken wrist. Couldn’t find anything suitable, but this might be adapted:

Of course, I should have thought to crochet the sling before I needed this one:

WISH THOSE WERE MY THIGHS!

So, instead of spending more time searching for crochet slings, i decided to surf for some other obscure crochet patterns. Didn’t find much, but here is what i ran across:

Another site: http://www.biblio.com/search.php?stage=1&dbrowse_title=122900-K will take you to a lovely trio of obscure vintage crochet books that are for sale.

http://www.makezine.com/blog/crochetflowers.jpg will take you to a cute pic of a flower necklace made from plastic bags. i think i’d rather see these appliqued to the front of a tote bag than around a neck.

http://www.craftzine.com/blog/archive/crochet/4.html is a funky blog that shows some nifty cro-things.

Now, gotta take some more meds and rest the evil wrist!

    I made this “Baby Sling” for my daughter’s friend last summer. She found the pattern and emailed it to me without any measurements for herself. I made it in Sugar & Cream shades of blue. Guess it came out OK. She said it worked just fine. You would have to make the shoulder part shorter and the sling pocket shallower to use for an arm sling, but it could be done! And with your beautiful work it would be a snap for you to do!
