Product Description


This is truly a gift book fileld with stories for the legions of men and women who crochet. --Crochet world


Some learn at their grandmother's knee, others find comfort in dark and troubled times, whilst some find an expression of artistic freedom, and some just want a good vest. How people came to crochet, what they make of it, what memories have been added to their lives, what pleasure and insight it has bought them - these are the stories in "Hooked: A Crocheter's Stash of Wit and Wisdom". A tribute to an age-old art, "Hooked" is embellished with charming illustrations from vintage pattern booklets, and the contributors range from newcomers to the craft to those well-known in crochet circles - Lily Chin, Jennifer Hansen, Karen Searle, Gwen Blakely Kinsler.

It's about time! 2 Oct. 2006
By Crochet Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Finally! A book (not a book of patterns, but a reading book!) about crochet! Some publisher actually listened. Being a lifelong crocheter this book was refreshing, wonderful essays from women who were not biased towards the art of crochet. A quick read but worth every penny. Hookers Unite!

Hooked on "Hooked." 4 Jan. 2007
By G. J. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I am mentioned in it by one of the essay writers --- one of my crochet students. When I began to read the other essays, I was even more pleased to have the collection. It's really a nice little book to pick up and read as time permits.
Nice book 30 Aug. 2013
By Heather Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Books on crocheting that are not pattern or technique books are rare. This one, full of short essays and stories about crocheting is a nice connection to others who practice or craft.

A Pleasant Read... 3 Jan. 2007
By Jean Leinhauser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Crocheters tell what the craft means to them. Interesting because I know some of the writers, but note that

it has no patterns or instructional material. Title might imply that it contains tips, but it is really simply

essays. Not sensational.

I haven't read the whole book,yet. So I can't really rate it yet. I'm really more into doing the craft, rather than reading about it.
