Wooooo!!! My book arrived at 11 am this morning, and look what happened this afternoon!!:

(It hasn't been steamed yet, I was just sooo excited I had to show you!!! Embarrassed)

I'm still very much a novice crocheter, and it was brilliant to be able to manage a pretty stitch pattern like this - the instructions are super clear and the schematic made such a difference!

I pretty much want to make everything in this book - I love it!  Cheesy

Wow, are you a fast crocheter?  That definitely looks like a pattern I'd like to try.

Thank you for all your lovely comments. I used an aran yarn (I think it's worsted in the USA) with 20% wool, so it can go in the washing machine, but still feels nice.

Fluffyhelen, this capelet only uses 2 types of stitch - doubles and trebles, and the instructions really are incredibly clear to follow - I'd definately recomend this book to a newbie crocheter.  I've had a bash at a couple of crocheted things, but this is the first "proper" crocheted thing I've managed, and as a knitter, I'd say this capelet looks a LOT more complicated than it really is, because to knit a lacy stitch like that would be a lot harder.

I'm a big fan of schematic diagrams, and even though the written instructions are very clear, I find that the diagram helps me so much.

I used to have really crappy pom poms too, but Debbie has an awesome tutorial in the origianal stich and bitch that has since made mine perfect. I don't know if she has the tut in the crochet book though...
