Book review - 101 Crochet Stitch Patterns & Edgings

Hello, Weather report The weather today is a bit cloudy and a lot cooler than it was over the weekend.

Book Review I thought I would do something a little different this week.  I have been crocheting for many years and I am a big lover of books.  This has meant I have collected many many craft books over the years, mainly crochet books. A small section my book shelves...

The book I have chosen to look at is called, 101 Crochet Stitch Patterns & Edgings: Patterns to Create Everything from Doilies to Afghans (Annies Attic Crochet), written and edited by Connie Ellison. My version is lovely, colourful paperback book published in 2012.  

101 Crochet Stitch Patterns & Edgings

The book includes patterns for swatches and edges plus two examples of how they can be made up into a blankets.  There is a section at the end of the book which covers crochet basics and helpful lessons.

The patterns in this book use US terminology. The print and layout is very clear, and each pattern has a clear photograph.

Short break

I have been busy trying to do a few new patterns this week, Phil and I have had a long weekend away to celebrate his 65th birthday, so I packed lots of lovely cotton yarns (who needs clothes) to experiment with on the plane and sunbed, news on them soon. What I really would like to know is how we manage to get a lovely warm place to go for his birthday and for mine we went to Geneva, snow and freezing there in December.....
