A new book purchase

I've been trying to work on a large crochet project, but with a new puppy in the house (he's an 18 wk old golden lab/ border collie/and maybe sharpei cross), it's been a bit tricky! It's a freeform afghan (or maybe wall hanging...) that has to be laid out flat to work on. He learned the hard way yesterday that Mum's crochet and yarn is OFF LIMITS!! He did ok until my girls got home. Then I had to rescue a piece of crocheted kelp! I got it back though, not too much the worse for wear.:0)

I ordered another book on Friday. Myra Wood's "Creative Crochet Lace" . I can hardly wait for it to arrive! I've been drooling over it for awhile now. I ordered it from Myra's site and received a very nice email the same day from Myra saying thank you for ordering and it was shipped that same day via Priority Mail! Thank you Ellen for blogging about her book on your blog. It was the info I needed to make the decision to buy!

The other book I have my eye on is Belinda "Bendy" Carter's latest book "Single Crochet A-Z". I really can't imagine 26 different ways to make a single crochet!
This will be my next purchase. I really like her book "Crochet on the Edge" ISBN -13:978-1-59635-113-4 / - 10: 1-59635-113-6. The photos are clear and the instructions are easy to follow.

You're welcome! There are so many great books coming out in the next 6-9 months or so, I hate having to pick and choose, but won't be able to afford them all. Myra's Creative Crochet Lace is a keeper because it is so unique a topic and a great inspiring presentation. Enjoy!
