Dear List:

Is there a useful source for "translating" 19th century crochet terms into
modern crochet terms? Something perhaps, by the Kliots, from Lacis?

I have enough problems doing thread crochet lace from modern directions
(usually takes me two tries for each pattern) but when I look at 19th
century directions it's another language!  :-(
