I’m sure I blogged about this book when I first got it a year or so ago, but it’s worth another mention. It’s really my favorite crochet book. It’s really gorgeous inside!
It has projects and patterns inside in addition to illustrations and instructions for LOTS crochet stitches. This Philosopher’s Coat is my dream project. I’m a little intimidated by it, but it’s so gorgeous. I will give it a go one of these days.
That’s my style…Boho-Nerd. LOL.
This is a gorgeous sparkly little baby blanket. I bet that yarn is so soft. (Click to see the sparklies better.)
This book is not cheap. I think I paid $26 for it, but it’s SO worth it. I will have it forever and refer to it again and again for the stitch pattern library. It has beginning chain counts too, i.e. multiples of 3 + 2, etc., for so many popular stitch patterns. You can make any stitch pattern in any size you like with an easy reference to this book without having to use your own brain to figure it out. Yes! I love not using my brain most of the time. Ha-ha.
Anyway, look for it on Amazon used for a better price. I have never been disappointed in a used book I have bought through Amazon. Just make sure you get one with the condition as “New, Like New, or Good” condition. I usually don’t purchase anything from a merchant with less than 96% satisfaction reviews from previous customers. Hint: If there is a list of used books available from different merchants, look for one in your state or a state close to yours for faster delivery.
I’m feeling kind of rough this morning so that’s it from me today. This is a MEAN bug! It’s spreading like wildfire too, according to my doctor. It goes something like this:
Day 1: sore throat.
Day 2: sore throat and migraine from hell that lasts all day.
Day 3: let the congestion begin.
Day 4: congestion drops to your chest but doesn’t leave your face either.
Day 5-14 and Beyond: more congestion and general body aches.
Go to the doctor immediately and get some antibiotics if you get a sore throat. It will go downhill QUICKLY from there and put a hurt on you, trust me. A lot of my family members have had this thing. I will start Week 2 tomorrow. It’s nasty!
