Sneak Peek: Teach a Group, Cute Little Aniimals, more

You knew it was coming, right? One more sneak peek for the week (and then I'm going to have to come up with original content on my own) and this time, it's Crochet city. The first one is "Teach a Group of Kids to Crochet" by Kay Meadors (available NOW, $14.95). This is a great book for anyone who'd like to teach a kid, their own or someone else's, to crochet. Fun projects that are great for beginners like wristbands, headbands, dishcloths, and more. Bright, fun projects and photography with great instructional shots too. This is also a good reference for those of us slow to start with our crochet hooks.

Next is Cute Little Animals ($9.95, available NOW). This is one that I absolutely love and a great inducement to figure out the whole chain issue. If you remember, one of my friends made me my very own Pirate Panda. And that was before this leaflet was perfected by the photography and the story. The story! Our fab-u-lous editorial writer created the backstory, the secret lives if you will, of the animals, complete with names. My favorite is Nestor, the Lock Ness monster, who spends his free time scaring the water out of divers. Love this one. Really.

And finally, Stellar Beauties is the newest crochet doily book ($8.95, available April/May). It's a collection of doilies by Julie Haberberger and they really are stellar. Whether you like your doilies round or a little unique in shape, you should check this one out.
