Book Review: Tunisian Shawls by Sharon H. Silverman


Tunisian Shawls
Having reviewed more than one of Sharon’s books, I could predict that this latest one is a worthwhile addition to anyone’s crochet library. Especially suited to those who want to experience Tunisian crochet and learn more about it, she includes 8 different shawls using yarn ranging from fine to bulky. A nice touch is the variety of shawls for all seasons. You’ll be kept busy crocheting and learning throughout the year!

Book Review: Crochet Ever After by Brenda K. B. Anderson

Crochet Ever After
This book is especially ideal for doting grandmothers; but anyone who likes to crochet unique and whimsical designs will love it too! It is adorable and I like the recent trend of crochet books with a theme! All projects in the book are inspired by classic fairy tales.
