'Cause I just got my copy of Stitch 'N Bitch Crochet The Happy Hooker this afternoon.
If you're a crocheter or want to become a crocheter, run, don't walk, to your nearest bookstore, LYS, or nearest mouse to order this online.
I love this book.
And this from a woman who couldn't have cared less about the Stitch 'N Bitch books for knitting.
But this one....this one.....truly does make my hook happy. :::wink:::
This is too cute:
I'm making one for myself & at least 2 as Christmas gifts. This book has it all - cute hats, cute mitts, cute tops, cute baby stuff....and cool skulls (it has skulls!!!):
Honestly, I need a skull potholder. More than one...maybe three.
For anyone considering using this book to help them learn, the crochet instructions are clear and the diagrams are easy to follow.
And, if you've been wanting the pattern to The Baroque Jacket from Stitch Diva Studios, that's included too. Such a deal!
Seriously: BUY THIS BOOK.
All that and I'm not even getting paid. :::wink:::
Knitting? You want knitting? I give you the Ribbing From The Black Lagoon:
It just keep going and going and going....after I finish the button band, I still have the armhole ribbing AND the pocket edge ribbing to do. Then comes crocheting up the side seams & button contemplation.
FO pic tomorrow - promise!
For those of you who don't know Kimberly, she's a sweetie - take my word for it. :) The other day she sent me an email with some goodies she had discovered in her internet travels. This is the best, most complete site I've ever seen for French/English knitting term translation. Everything I'd ever think to ask & quite a few I hadn't! Wowowowow. Plus, she found lots & lots of free patterns on the Bergere De France site. Mouse over to the left on the top bar, to "Tricotheque" and click for "Femme" (women), "Homme" (men), etc. Lots & lots of gorgeous patterns, all free for the translating. :::grin:::
Thanks again, Kimberly!
There - 'nuff food for thought for one day, eh? I'm off to watch a new NCIS (woohoo!) and the premiere of "Amazing Race."
Life doesn't get much better. :::wink::::
