Checkout these great crochet and knit books (some are so new they aren't published yet! pre-order them at!), and other items I enjoy or are on my wish list!

Crochet pattern books donated to BARC

| 1 Comment

Again, I felt the need to reduce my crochet pattern collection a bit by books I know I'm not going to use. Mom wants to have 6 of the afghan pattern books I don't want, and 8 pattern books for sweaters and 1 afghan book will be given to the Bay Area Rapid Crocheters (BARC) (a local chapter of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA)) for their resources library.

If you are ever getting rid of any more afghan books, I'll take them. I love new ideas for afghans :) You are very generous to donate your books to CGOA, that's awesome!
