    Hey, I remember that thread! I made a skirt out of it (the blue shown in the photo) in the 1970s shortly after I learned to crochet (as a teenager). Took me a while, mind you. Worked day & night. Thanks for posting that photo here.

    Hey,
    I still have some of these threads. The white has turned a little beige the others are still OK. I forgot I had them as they were packed in a box in the attic. When I moved I opened the box and found all kinds of treasures. Lots of crochet hooks and yarn and thread and old items I made but didn't finish.
    Brings back happy memories.
