With More Than 20 New Crochet Projects
Crochet has not only brought me joy, satisfaction, and peace of mind when I'm crocheting, it has had a whole wealth of wonderful side effects too. You'll notice that one of the projects in this book is a copy of my very first crochet project, the project that taught me how to crochet. It's a poncho in pink, green, and off-white, that I made when I was only nine years old. I've felt a bit sentimental about this project, and I like that it's part of my book now. You see, this poncho was the start of that tremendous amount of crochet pleasure and achievement I experienced much later in life. In fact, it was the seed that eventually led to my blog, many fantastic crafty friendships - lovely virtual ones all around the world, as well as in-person ones -, and now this book!
With this book I hope to inspire you to do what makes me happy, and hope it will make you happy too: crochet!
