Granny-Square Crochet - 35 contemporary projects u&hellip by Catherine Hirst
5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
I just got this book today and after a thorough look through I can honestly say I am thrilled to bits with it. There are a few projects I'm unlikely to make but only because I don't have small children or babies to crochet for. I can honestly say, there's not one single 'dud' pattern in this book. I'm a bit of a crochet addict, only been crocheting for about 9mths but I am totally hooked on the craft now and consider myself an intermediate, but even if I were a total beginner, all the patterns look easy peasy to me. I'm wishing now that I wasn't in the middle of two huge blanket projects because I want to get stuck in to some of the projects in this book right away. The photography has been… Read more

Simply Sparkling Christmas Beading: Over 35 Beauti&hellip by Dorothy Wood

I just bought this book and it's the best fiver I've spent in a long time. I'm a total beginner with beading and needed simple patterns and ideas to get me started. There isn't one single dud pattern here, every single one is a winner and what's more, they all look easy to do provided you buy the right gear and follow the instructions correctly. There's a couple that require complete concentration, not because they are difficult, but because they're just easy to make a mistake on if you're surrounded by distractions. I thoroughly recommend this book to beginners and experienced beaders alike, this book is worth every single penny. Another book I would recommend for BEGINNERS is the one… Read more
