My son asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I said “Couture Crochet Workshop by Lily M. Chin.” He brought it over last night, he had to order it.
I learned new techniques just reading the first few pages that solved some crocheting problems I’ve always wished I had an answer for. Wicked!!! I understand reading charts better now too.
I’m not that crazy about the designs in the book, but It has lots of detailed information on how to get a great fit with crocheted items. It’s a boat load of info. Love it.
My craft buddy gave me “Crochet Squared” by Marsha Polk for Christmas. I love that book. I made that vest from the processes learned in that book. I love the creativity and how quickly you can make something. My time is limited and crocheting some thing to wear in just a few nights after work gives me ultimate satisfaction.
I also have a knitting book that uses squares and triangles to get stuff done and on your body in the least amount of time. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s not as fast as crochet, but faster than traditional knitting when using large needles and bulkier yarns.
