If you want to learn to crochet..

My aunt crochet’s & she is really good at it. When my mom’s sewing machine broke down on me last year (before I got mine)..I was thinking of other crafty things to do…so the book dork in me (as in: the librarians know me by name & the way I get things done at the library)..which is I research books I want before I get there & then browse around a minute… but anyway I went & checked out possibly every book I could on crochet. It taught me alot (but teaching yourself from a book is a lot harder than having someone there to show you what’s going on)..

Here are a few that have actually HELPED & not made me think “what I am doing to myself?”..
