At the beginning of the year I drew attention to 28 crochet books I was excited to see coming out this year. We’re halfway through the year now and many of those books have been released. People, including me, are reviewing and enjoying them. Today I thought I’d roundup links to reviews and other information about 25 crochet and craft books.
