Wednesday, September 4, 19t4 HOPE (ARK.) STAR Page three Mohair softens autumn image By Judy Love Whether you are «i novice or tin expert, if you crochet brush up on mohair to refresh your fashion wardrobo for fall. Mohaii 1 has the delicate, brushed look that's really moving into the big time for the coming season. The yarn works so well into the new softer silhouettes that it's difficult to choose among the new patterns for crocheters. So instead of one, I selected two designs that are particularly choice. The short shrink vest and jacket are a beautifully matched set, although each has tremendous fashion potential on its own. They are crocheted in Bernat's Mohair Plus yarn which contains more than 60 per cent of true and timely mohair blended with wool and nylon for the strength and texture that add to the garments beauty and long life. The yarn is pre- brushed to give an extra delicate look. Each piece is designed in four colors. You can have great fun putting together your own color combos but I can't resist suggesting my own favorites. My preference is for a strong tile blue as the main color and a bright scarlet as the secondary jhade. Add a dash of navy and a touch of gold and you have the look I like best. Crocheting instructions for both the shrink and its matching jacket are available for sizes small, medium and large. These categories will fit any size from 8 to 18. You'll need the new I and J crochet hooks for these fall fashions. To obtain your needlework directions send 50 cents to Stitchin' Time, c/ o your local newspaper, Radio City Station, Box 503, New York, N.Y. 10019. Ask for leaflet No. 401 and be sure to enclose your name, address and zip code. KNIT KNACKS Dear Judy Love: Like all Women's news V/r.v, Hrtu-ceh Hn.ni.anii 4 " m. Wnndiiv thru P>-;Ha\ Calendar of events Two timely fashions for fall — a shrink vest and jacket — are crocheted in the soft, brushed look of a mohair yarn. (Bernart yarns). people who knit or crochet I end up with lots of leftover yarn. I never really know how much I have. Therefore, I can't tell if there's enough to make something else. Is there any way to determine how much yarn is left over— B.J., New Hampshire. Dear B.J.: You probably have in your home right now the best thing for determining how much is left over. What? A kitchen scale — or perhaps a mail scale. Both are marked off into ounces, some even into grams. Just put your yarn on the scale and immediately you'll know how many ounces you have toward your next project Best, Judy Love.

DEAR ABBY: 1 am only 29, and could write a book about my life, but nobody would believe it. My mother died when I was eight, and I was passed around from relative to relative to raise. Somehow I was smart enough to realize that I had to get a good education in order to take care of myself, so I put myself through secretarial school. I fell for a guy and let him move in with me. (Big mistake number one.) He really used me. It turned out he was on, drugs, and soon he had a $40-a-day habit which nearly broke me, so I got rid of him—which wasn't easy. (Maybe I should mention that I weighed in the neighborhood of 235 at this point.) Then I met another guy and fell hard for him. We dated for three months and he said if I lost 100 pounds he would marry me—but he was ashamed of me the way I was. In the last 13 months I lost 98 pounds, Abby. Last week he told me he changed his mind. He met someone else and was marrying her! I nearly lost my mind. I was so crushed and depressed I went on an eating binge. Thank God it lasted only two days. Please tell me how to get over this blow, Abby. I 've even considered suicide. HEARTBROKEN IN L.A. DEAR HEARTBROKEN: The L.A. Suicide Prevention Center has an excellent counseling program. Call them. Disappointed as you are, you have much to be grateful for. The man who "changed his mind" also changed your life by motivating you to lose nearly 100 pounds. Stick with that diet, and go to work on forgetting hini. And count your blessings instead of your disappointments. DEAR ABBY: Recently my husband and I were shopping in a department store. My husband purchased several pair of slacks and 1 bought a pants suit. My husband's slacks were a trifle too long, so the store made the necessary alterations at no charge. However, I was charged for the alteration on my pants suit. I was told that as a matter of policy the store does not alter women's clothing free of charge. Only mens'. HOUSEHOLD HINTS When a recipe calls for "bread," use white bread, except in the case of sandwiches. For those you may choose the variety of bread you prefer. Cucumber sandwiches, however, are traditionally made with white bread. If you're using ground meat extended with unseasoned textured soy protein for hamburgers, you can add your own flavorings. Soy sauce is a good seasoning for extended meat, but if you add it omit the usual salt. YOUNG ORIGINALS. CAN-DO CANDY CRAFTS TO MAKE YOUB GIFT A HIT You don't need to he; a smart shopper to find unique and personalized gifts for special occasions — just a little "crafty." Rely on your own at-home creativity and you can come up with a meaningful gift that will be remembered, and used, for a long time. Candy boxes, jars and tins can be hand-ornamented with an assortment of decorative designs, Ixaws, colorful papers and braids to make a pretty gift of candy that cari become a showpiece, and even a tradition. Need a gift idea to mark a special birthday or anniversary? Buy a box of favorite chocolates or assorted candies, then add a personal touch by decorating it with a montage of family photos and other memorabilia. A gift as special as this is not likely to be tossed out once the candies are gone. Refill the gift box with candy and use it over and over each year to celebrate the same special occasion. Chocolates have always been a favorite hostess gift, especially at those times when you don't want to arrive at a party or dinner "empty-handed." Dress up a candy box with decorations to match the homo decor of your hostess or to compliment a particular holiday, such as a Stars 'n Stripes box for a Inly 4th barbecue. You'll arrive with a special hostess gift that all the guests will enjoy. For a child's birthday, try your hand at putting together the Clown 'n Candy Jar Hank shown above, designed by lh<> National Confectioners Association. Any jar of candy will do, plus a small styrofoam egg, colorful yarn, fringe, a rufflt:, scrap of felt and all-purpose glue. Affix the styrofoam egg to the jar lid with glut; or small nails. Then wind and glue the yarn around the top half of the egg to make a hat. Add fringe for hair around the base 1 of the hat and decorate with snijll pom-pons of yarn. Ran a line of glue around the base of the egg and press on ruffle for a collar. To add a final touch, cut a mouth fiorti the felt and glue it to the styrofoam. then arid a fevy gl.i-if, IHVH) pins for a nose and eye<. Fancy randy box crafts also are ideal gifts foi children to nuike, particularly as projects in I ho classroom, with scouting groups and youth programs. Wilb little cost anil trouble, youngsters can put together a decorative candy box similar to the Mom's Candy Ciift Box shown below. The entire outside of this personalized box is covered with construction paper (pretty pastel shades are best) and mated with a glossy lacquer spray or varnish to make it shine. Colorful floral braidings and laces are then glued to the sides of the box, and small flowers and detnls attached to tho corners of the box lid. Use a piece of aluminum foil of tooling weight to form the "Mom" pattern on the lid. Draw the desired pattern on A piece of tracing paper, then place llie paper over the foil and, with a blunt pencil point, re- Irace the design onto the foil, pressing down to indent. To got a tooled effect to the foil, turn the piece over and rub the pencil tip over all the empty areas. 1 hen affix the emblem to tbe lid with an all- purpose glue. This same candy box craft i on be done for any number of occasions, simply by changing the design to fit the person who will receive the gift. As with the candy jar, this decorative box can be refilled and used over and over to celebrate birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day or any holiday. half size pattern Foster family has reunion A Foster family reunion was held in August at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Foster, near Stamps.

UPSET IN BIRMINGHAM DEAR UPSET: Better not make waves, ma'm. If you scream too loudly for "equality," they may start charging MEN for alterations. DEAR ABBY: Just heard you on CBS radio. You advised a lady who wanted to know what to say to someone who asked her a very personal question to say: "If you'll forgive me for not answering, I'll forgive you for asking." That's much too polite, Ab. I have a better answer, which I have had to use only three tunes in the last 30 years. Each time I had to force myself to muster up the courage, but it completely disarmed the questioner. 1 said: "If I thought it was any of your business, I'd tell you." Believe me, it works like a charm. When people have the nerve to ask personal questions that offend, they deserve this kind of answer. CHICAGOLAND LISTENER DEAR LISTENER: You topped me!

Tips for (he komemaker PRESERVE FALL LEAVES To preserve autumn loaves, first press them with a warm iron in order to set the color, Next, soak the leaves in'a .•solution of one part glycerine and nine parts water. Soak thoroughly, remove, and press between blotters. Some women soak magnolia leaves in lull strength solution of antifreeze as used in cars. Another way to treat the magnolia leaves is to put the stems only in a mixture of one part water and two parts glycerine. Leave them two to three weeks. leaves left in the solution a shorter time will have a greenish-brown color while leaves left longer will Lend to have a deep brown lone. By preserving beautiful fall leaves, the hornemaker can have attractive arrangements in the home throughout the fall anil winter seasons. PRESSING FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE To dry leaves pick them when green or at height of autumn color. Lay leaves or flowers you w;uil to press flat on several thicknesses of newspaper which is absorbent. Weight down with bricks or heavy books. Choose a warm, dry place. The floor of the attic is perfect. Few basements are dry enough. A little used room or closet will serve the purpose. Place each flower or leaf by itself, so that they will not touch each other and stick together. If they do, they will break when pulled apart after they start drying. Once a week turn each leaf or flower and when throughly ilry, in about three weeks, store until needed. l.ay on a newspaper in a lar^e, flat box and cover. Any heavy textured leaf dries w '.' properly handled. Pressed flowers are popular for making flower pictures.
