i've heard that knitting in plain english is supposed to be really great.
since i drag my mum into yarn stores all the time with me (and my sis is pregnant) she is re-inspired to crochet again --but has forgotten all the sts. since i don't crochet i was thrilled to see that the same author has a crochet in plain english title out now too. she really likes it.
