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.
