My oh-so-essentials knitting and crochet books! :)


Knitting and Crochet Books


What would I do without them?

I love to look at them, read them, learn from them.

Are you like me?, Do you have some or a lot of knitting and crochet books in your library?

I have so many that I decided to make lists without any comments.
From time to time, I will take one and make a little review in a post. I will mark the book like that: (blog post)

Each book is in a category. Sometimes it’s difficult to choose one. Pattern books, as example, often contains information, techniques and patterns.
