I have recently received a fun crochet book by the talented Sara Leighton of Illuminate Crochet. It's called Nature's Gifts for Baby and you can find it here.
There are 7 gift sets for baby, all including a hat and matching blanket. As you know--I looove making blankets, so this is right down my alley!
But here are some things about this book that really excite me...
~~Six of the 7 projects in this book are rated as Easy which makes them perfect for working up quickly--ideal for gifting.
~~There are some fun techniques used like charted crochet in the Seedling Set...
...and appliques like in the Water Lilies Set.
~~Throughout each pattern little video camera icons alert you to available videos for additional help if you need it (and if you love that extra visual like I do.)
~~The book will lay flat when you are working. This may seem like a small thing, but I really like that I can lay it next to me and read the pattern easily without needing to prop it open.
Again, you can find the book for purchase from Leisure Arts here.
I have been following Sara's blog for a while now and I really enjoy reading her posts. She provides lots of interesting little tid bits about all things crochet, knit and yarny.
I hope life is treating you well and you are enjoying plenty of time playing with your hook and yarn! I'm off now to do just that kind of playing.
