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.

One of the first books that I ever reviewed on this blog was Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies by Twinkie Chan.
