    Oh my goodness me! I want them ALL! I just love filling my bookshelves with more crochet books. I can’t believe Edward’s Imaginarium – JUST the thing I need to be able to crochet lots of cool toys for my nephew. Also looking forward to Supersize Crochet and who can go past any crochet book for the home?! But I really think the biggest mention has to go to those Dumpling Kitties!!!! I can’t get enough OMG they’re so cute and funny! Thanks so much for a great post – inspiring.
