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.
One Plastic Bag: Isatou Ceesay and the Recycling Women of the Gambia by Miranda Paul illustrated by Elizabeth Zunon. “This book is the true story of a woman who set out to transform her African village by teaching herself and others to crochet purses from the plastic bags that litter the ground everywhere.”
