i'm a knitter, but venturing into crochet because there are so many cute projects i want to try! does anyone have any recommendations for crochet books with non-cheesy projects?
i pre-ordered "cozy crochet" [url]http://www.chroniclebooks.com/Chronicle/servlet/at/go(bookRecord,0811840794)[/url, with designs by melissa leapman who also wrote "knitting pretty". anyone hear/know anything about it? is it worth it?
BONUS! if you look up "knitting pretty" on the chronicle books site and click on excerpts, there are links to 3 or 4 knitting projects!
i'm going to take a trip to japan this summer and i'm trying to do some research before i go. anyone know of any good yarn stores/brands to look out for? i know they have oodles of great stuff that we don't have here, but the only that we see is noro yarn.
i just read an article in a knitting mag (don't remember which one) and took some notes. i'm so excited!
