It seems that knitting and crocheting are back in style. I have done both since I was pretty young. I have a thing for yarn ~ ask my boyfriend. I can’t seem to get enough of it. My new book to review is 101 Socks: Circular Needles, Felted, Addi-Express, Toe Up, Crocheted, and Spiral Knit. This is a great book – it has both knitted and crocheted sock patterns.
The pattern I am working on is The 4-Step Method for crocheted socks – it has step-by-step directions. That makes it easy for me to follow. My skills aren’t that great yet so I need to practice but I can’t wait to finish a pair.
There are patterns for all skill types – from just starting to expert.
