Because my wool stash is so hugh I decided to get these books which i have been coveting (is that the right word ) for some time now, normally it would have meant a win on the lottery or premium bonds for me to go and buy all three books at once, so to say i loved putting them in a shopping basket is an understatement. I did succumb and got two balls of yarn, some darning needles, two handcrafted buttons and only had to pay £ 2.00 in cash, it was great.
I also had a £15 voucher for Amazon thanks to a free trial of Lovefilms, so what else did I spend them on but books.
Hooked For Life, adventures of a Crochet Zealot is the first humorous essay collection available for crocheters. It also contains three fun crochet patterns and tons of hilarious truths about our much loved craft.
Here are a few quotes from the book which i wanted to share and i can so relate to them
Gauge; for tight crocheters Just add water Fermented water that is-- a glass of wine or three is bound to loosen up a too tight gauge Just make sure you knock back a few each time you crochet or your gauge will be inconsistent throughout
Sometimes just knowing i could crochet if i wanted to is enough to get me through an event. I'll tuck the hook and yarn in my purse purely in case of emergency . i keep a fifth of good vodka in the freezer for much the same reason
If only i could crochet through a root canal, there are some hours that i wish would flash by at the speed of light.
Just the other day I uttered a phrase that stopped traffic, a phrase i never in a million years thought i would utter " I have too much yarn"
Was i sick with a fever?
I highly recommend this book, a really good, enjoyable read for all you crocheters out there
off to ogle my books for the millionth time and to try and choose my next crochet projects
