Beautiful new crochet book!

I just got a great new book called, "Special Techniques & Stitches in Crochet". It has a ton of stitches that are new to me, along with a few patterns. Since I am not that great at following patterns, just learning new stitches and techniques is especially helpful for me. I have spent probably four hours trying to do some of the stitches. The more complicated ones, like Butterfly Shell and V-Stitch with Bullion, are still throwing me, but I have mastered two, so far, the plain V-stitch and the Textured Blocks, which is exciting! I think it is a great book! Mine is hard cover over a ring binder , which makes it real easy to work with. I got mine from Annie's Attic, but I see that you can get it from Overstock.com for less.

Does anyone else have a new book they are excited about?

I'm getting the knitting book More Sensational Socks any day, it was a birthday present from my friend in Montana but she just got it so it got mailed late.

wow, that looks like an excellent book! I'm going to have to order it now. :) I looked on overstock.com and amazon.com and they both say it's not available until October 2008 but Annie's has it, so Annie's getting my business! lol


Off to search for more books. :)
