Crochet Master Class ~ The Latest Addition to My Library

I've been crocheting for over 30 years. I probably shouldn't admit to this, but I learned when I was a kid and well, I'm not a kid anymore. Basically, I'm just saying that I have some experience in the craft of crochet and so I'm pretty selective about the books I buy.

A couple of months ago I received one of those Amazon emails. You know, the ones showing you items you may be interested in based on your past purchases. In this email was the opportunity to pre-order Crochet Master Class. I couldn't resist checking it out, so with just one click, I was sold.

Actually, it was kind of fun when my book arrived right around December 25th. Merry Christmas to me! I haven't completely mind melded with it yet, but even upon first inspection, this book does contain a few projects that would be learning experiences for me. For example, I've never made hairpin lace, Brudges lace or worked with a double ended crochet hook.

So, in the spirit of continuing education for 2011, I think it will be fun to work my way through a few of the projects and share the experience here on my blog. Maybe you'll even want to join in. Crochet-Alongs are always fun. I'll be sure to give you the heads up when I'm getting ready for my first pattern.

Oh, and just as a final book review note, Crochet Master Class by Jean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss, is a beautiful piece of work. The projects offered are very appealing. It's also full of lovely photographs and stories about the crocheters.
