I'm keeping this one
on 18 February 2011
I am terrible for buying crochet books because I'm inspired by their cover or a review and then passing them on because really there was nothing that grabbed me. This book is different. I find the photographs inspirational and the patterns easy to follow. The book is divided into 3 sections. Starting Out, which has all the usual diagrams for complete newbies, and then simple projects all of which I'd happily make. I've already done bunting, a round stripy cushion, a bag using small granny squares and wash cloths. The section section 'Practice makes perfect' has 11 projects, again almost all usable. I've done a scarf, baby slippers & plan on at least 4 more. The final section of 9 projects includes bears, a pretty tea cosy, russian dolls & a gorgeous scarf - my next project.
All the recommended yarns are available in the UK. I think all in all Nicki's book does what it says on the cover - 35 adorable, cute & easy projects.
