We found these oh-so-cool handmade crochet hooks on pinned by Marta McCall.
And a tutorial at Stramenda.
Have you ever made your own hooks or needles? We’d love to see them!
Why must you make such beautiful projects to make us want to cut corners from our vacation or lunch money so we could buy your book? It’s not fair!
That’s how I would start my letter to Linda, who has come up with the most unique crochet desgins for babies and children. If you have already overspent your book budget for this year, you must run to the library and request that they purchase this book for you and your community [along with a subscription to Living Crafts magazine of course]:
If you love crochet, but are always thirsty for more happy, stylish designs that are fun, but still practical and useful, Linda Permann as all the patterns you want for babies and toddlers, all in this one book!
Linda, author of Crochet Adorned has a proven track record crochet is not just for great grannies, but for modern moms and grannies. This book, along with Crochet Adorned are two of my top favorite crochet books.
Full review in the upcoming Spring 2011 issue of Living Crafts.
These sweet hearts from Design*Sponge have my attention for this Valentine’s Day. They are just so simple, and easy to do with a child too. If they have not learned how to crochet yet, they can start with the chain stitch and make the garland. Click here for the tutorial.
