New Book to Love

While out browsing at Borders one day I came across a book that I just knew I was going to love.  It is filled with the most wonderful treasures that will keep your hands busy for a long time.  I knew right away that there were at least ten things in this book that I wanted to try right away.  

I love the unconventional materials used throughout the book for all the different projects.  You will find great instructions and pictures throughout the book.  The instructions are clear and easy to understand.  The New Techniques and Mastering the Basics have great pictures to help you understand the text.  Being a visual person this helped me know just exactly what I needed to do and if I was doing it right.

It didn't take long to figure out which would be my first project.  My daughter immediately wanted this awesome Vintage Satchel.  I think I will be jealous when it's finished and she gets to use it because I really want one, too.  
Isn't it just gorgeous?  I love everything about it.  I can't wait until it's finished and I can show you the pictures of this completed wonder.  I hope I do it justice.  

There are some great pictures on Julie's Flickr.  Go on over and take a look at all the great projects in this book.  If you crochet I think you will want to run out and grab this book for yourself.  

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.  Stay tuned for pictures of my completed project.

Thank you, Ruth! What wonderful things you've said. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book and was able to get a lot of use from it.

Can't wait to see what wonderful projects you make from it.

Ruth, that does look like a great crochet book. I'm excited to see what you made from it.Now that I can't knit any more I'm always wanting an interesting item to work on., and crochet is suchj fun and lucky for me, doesn't make my carpal tunnel rear its ugly head.
