Book Review: The Happy Hooker

 happy hooker.jpg    Received this book as a birthday present recently (siggghhh…gifts make them easier to deal with, don’t they?). In this case, I had Debbie Stoller’s new one on my wish list since it first starting appearing on the Web, months before the actual release date.

Debbie (again) did not disappoint! This is a terrific book and I can’t wait to get started making some of the projects. As I have mentioned before, crochet is my first love in the yarn craft genre, but there hasn’t been as much attention given to crochet as there has been to knitting, since the current yarn frenzy began. This book provides a lot of variety- fun, easy projects, some more classic looks and in keeping with her knit books, Debbie again provides a comprehensive guide to the basics, how-to’s re: stitches, yarns, sewing it all together and so much more. Even a short history of crochet is included.

Some of my already want- to- try projects from the book include: Unseamly Sweater, FrouFrou cardigan, Fluffy Bunny Slippers and One Skein Scarf, to name just four.

For now, I am concentrating on my S.S.S. and Joe’s cardigan, these are top priority to finish. After that, I think I will take a knit break and dive into these great looking crochet projects. Thanks for another terrific book Debbie. PS: Love the cover photo!!!
