Hello crafty people!!
In the continuing effort to bribe you all into coming to my house a week from tomorrow I'm posting a list of all of our pattern books that you can paw through if you come!
Cheating is just winning creatively :D
I only have a couple knitting books so I'll start with those and then move on to the crochet books.
-Viva Poncho "Twenty ponchos and caplets to knit." By: Christina Stork and Leslie Babrbazette
This has a couple really pretty light shawls that I think would work well for summer sales...if any of you crazy knitters are interested.
-A Treasury of Magical Knitting By: Cat Bordhi
If you've ever seen the nifty Moebius knitting stuff?? This is her first book.
-Kids Knitting "Projects for kids of all ages." By: Melanie Falick
This has some cute finger puppets as well as wacky socks that I think might be fun to try.
-Fiber Trends "Night on the Town" Felt Purse By: Bev Galeskas
Not a book, just the pattern...Mom got it for me not realizing that a crochet pattern would've been the better choice...Pretty purse though :)
-Kooky Crochet "30 Remarkably Wacky Projects" By: Linda Kopp
Our newest book!! We had to have it!! It has, among many other things, crocheted coffee cozies, laptop cozies, a fig leaf halter top, hand puppets, and fuzzy dice pillows. Seriously want to make stuff from this book!!
-Learn to Crochet the Easy Way By: Jean Leinhauser
This is the book I used as my guide for the refresher course I put myself through. If anyone is looking to learn or relearn crochet I highly recommend this one. The only project I think is likely is a tank top that could be made with something sparkly.
-The Happy Hooker "Stitch 'n Bitch Crochet" By: Debbie Stoller
Really good book for more advanced crochet information. Lots of cute designs. Halter top, bunny slippers, skully hot pads :)
-Cool Crochet "30 Hot Fun designs to crochet and wear." By: Melissa Leapman
Not my favorite book. Though I did get the muppet hat out of it :) Has a couple purses and tops that are cute and would probly work up nice.
-Geometrics "A new way to crochet" By: Ruthie Marks
This is one of the coolest crafty books I've ever seen!! It's all based on nifty geometric theory :D
This is the book the 7 pointed star afghan I've been working on forever comes from. A bag, a shawl, some baskets, and lots of really nifty ideas!!
-Felted Crochet Purses By: Stitch 'n Frame
Little paperback pamphlet that was on sale. Has some really cute purse ideas in it.
-Sexy Swimwear to Crochet By: Kristina Dannels
These I think would be perfect for FW!! It's got several different bikini designs and a number of different cover ups that I think the FW crowd would love!!
-A Year of Afghans By:Annis Clapp
No we don't want to make the whole blankets. There are a few motifs that I think could me made into bags or shawls effectively. A butterfly, a couple different flowers, a fall leaf. Good ideas.
-Fiber Trends "Crochet Felt Ballet Slippers" By: Bev Galeskas
If I can figure out how to make them they would be brilliant!!
As well as all those I have 2 crochet magazines that have some good granny square ideas among other things.
Yay patterns and projects!! See you soon!!
