Hey guys :-)
Having done as much crocheting as I have knitting for Christmas, I thought I'd take a leap and buy the Crochet Me book - I like the designs and the quirky way they have of presenting things, even though I don't post on the forums because I really don't need another drain on my making stuff time
It arrived today, along with my Knitting Pattern a Day calendar and the DIY Wedding book from Craft Magazine - both of which are great.
But I just wanted to say about Crochet Me - it's been a long time since I've looked at a book of crochet patterns and thought anything more than 'that's technically interesting' or 'hmm, that makes me want to make something similar but not that, I'll go look for another pattern'. This book has a bunch of patterns, at least 3 or 4, that I want to make, for me to wear, NOW! Stuff that might actually flatter my figure, stuff that's quirky and cute while still being stylish and wearable with anything. I'm amazed! And excited! I was already looking forward to the post-Christmas period when I could knit stuff for me, things I've been planning but putting off because of presents to make, but now I have even more things to put on the list! Woo!
