Two books I am enjoying are Crochet Inspiration by Sasha Kagan and 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton. I am planning to make a couple of blankets soon. I recommend both books. Any new(or not so new) ones you've discovered? And what will you crochet? warmly,

One book I go back to again and again is Rita Weiss' "24-Hour Crochet" book. I've gotten rave reviews for the "Must Have Blouse" (I used Plymouth Wildflower instead of Patons Astra), and for other things I've made from the book. Granted, the projects take a BIT longer than the 24 hours, but overall, not too long.

I also LOVE anything by Melissa Leapman. I've crocheted a few of her sweater patterns and they came out beautifully.


WIP = Scrap Sweater (knit), Aran Stitch Afghan (crochet)

Done this year = Scrap Scarf (knit), Gloves (knit), Mittens (knit), Afghan (crochet), Pinwheel Afghan (crochet), Knit Your Bit Scarf for the WWII Museum (knit - charity)

If I could only do this for a living...
