Colorful Crochet: Over 60 Bright, Cheerful Projects for Home, Family, and Friends by Therese Hagstedt is a delight to look at if you enjoy colorful crochet. It’s the kind of color that’s clean – with lots of white to make it bright and soft at the same time.
I really want to get my hands on a copy of Vanessa Mooncie’s new book, Animal Heads: Trophy Heads to Crochet, but I haven’t gotten a copy, yet, so I thought I’d do a review of another recent book she authored, Crocheted Sea Creatures: A Collection of Marine Mates to Make.
Tapestry Crochet and More: A Handbook of Crochet Techniques and Patterns by Maria Gullberg is a crochet instructional book rich in colors and graphic elements.

You’ve arrived at the fourth stop on the blog book tour for Sharon Silverman’s new title, One-Skein Baby Projects. We’ll take a look at what the other bloggers loved about this new book and then add some new details in my review of the book.
Earlier this year, I compiled my Crochet Lover’s Ultimate Buying Guide to 2016 Crochet Books and Robyn Chachula’s Vintage Modern Crochet: Classic Crochet Lace Techniques for Contemporary Style was right there on the list. Today is our closer look at this book. It’s a great title to add to your crochet book library, especially if you love romantic designs, trying out new techniques and doing something just slightly unexpected in your craft.
One of the first books that I ever reviewed on this blog was Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies by Twinkie Chan. I was enchanted by the way she applied crochet ideas to making food-related art that was also wearable. I’ve followed her work ever since, always intrigued by what she’s creating whether it was her free patterns for Michael’s or her artistic imagery showcasing her creations. So, it’s no surprise that I’m in love with her new book, Twinkie Chan’s Crocheted Abode a la Mode, in which she has applied her crochet food-making talents to home decor.
