This book has wonderful projects, things you would make and wear with pride. No 1970's crochet here.

The yarn choices and colours are beautiful and there are a number of projects I will make. I should say I am new to crochet (although a very experienced knitter) but this is inspiring me to do much more than granny squares. The book arrived today and I have already had a go at swatching a couple of things.

Love this more than any of the other crochet books I have seen and bought.

This film has everything. It's a bit cheesy, it's funny, sad, heartwarming, a bit silly, and very watchable. My kids never tire of it and although I have watched it more times than I care to remember, if they suggest watching this I always say yes.

It is a bit unbelievable to times but who cares. It's lovely. And Bob is a star!

You can follow the instructions to the letter and copy the dolls as per the book or come up with your own variations. Claire Garland encourages you to experiment and try out different colour and yarn combinations. I have a doll with variagated purple hair and a matching dress as well as the ones in the book.
An older child could, with some help make one of these themselves. They are easy to do and for the more experienced, you could night a doll in a couple… Read more
