Review:

'Designs to fuel the crochet revolution' The author's words describing how she found existing crochet designs to be old fashioned and boring and what she is doing to change this state of affairs. She would love to inspire creativity in crocheters and this book will certainly help this aim. It contains designs and techniques showing crochet at its best with interesting profiles of the women who have contributed. She also publishes a website called CrochetMe.com. Lots of interesting projects with stitch information at the back of the book. --Meg-Online
