The whole month of November is my time to give thanks to the Narrators and Books that I have loved in the last year. This year I got my reading mojo back so for me #30DaysofThanks2017 is extra special. So buckle up buttercup, here is one of my favorites from the last year! (make sure to check back daily for new faves).
Today (Day 14) I am spotlighting Step Into Crochet by Rohn Strong which helped me get over my fear of crocheting socks. I have been crocheting for 30+ years but socks are my pitfall. I am just not good at doing them. This helped explain what I am doing wrong and I have faith that maybe some day I will get one pair right 🙂 🙂 🙂
About the Book: Everything you need to know to make stunning crochet socks!
Step into Crochet is the most comprehensive guide to creating crocheted socks. Author Rohn Strong shares 19 patterns for cozy socks, along with a wide variety of techniques, in this must-have reference and pattern book.
The first section of Step into Crochet focuses on construction methods: you’ll learn basic toe-up and cuff-down construction, while being introduced to a variety of heel and toe treatments. Plus, you’ll find out what makes a certain heel/toe combination perfect for socks!
The pattern section includes 19 socks ranging from basic ribbed and simple socks (great for customizing) to more technique-based pieces, focusing on colorwork, lace, cables, and motifs.
Whether you’re ready to jump into crocheting socks feet first, or just dipping your toe in to try out a few fun patterns, Step into Crochet is your go-to resource.
What is your favorite craft book? I would love to know 🙂
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
