Some book purchases...
The Knitting and Crochet Guild keeps a library of craft books - they keep two copies for lending, and the rest they sell on. I picked these up last week.
Mary Thomas's book is great. I love the little cartoons, although they don't really have much to do with the text.
Been trying more obscure crochet techniques lately. This month's Interweave Crochet details a technique of creating two rows of double crochet (US single crochet) at once, and there's a double base chain in Mrs' Beetons book. I think I got them right, was doing them last night at the pub without the instructions!
David's released his Slip Stitch Crochet website - take a look! It's an interesting technique! Can't wait to read about cables!
