I love the author's sense of humor. And this book gave me the term for the thing I find myself doing more often than I like: "frogging." It means unraveling part of your work as you go along to perform do-overs where you goofed. The author makes it clear that everyone goofs now and then, and she advises you to "love the frog." So for the novice crocheter, it will help you through the rough patches of the learning process, and keep you laughing (or at least not crying) as you learn about all the problems that can crop up, even with expert crocheters.
The book also include a half dozen crochet patterns for beginners, and although some of them (a cup cozy? A plant hanger?) are not exactly exciting, they will be good practice patterns to ease the novice over the bumps along the road to becoming an intermediate-level yarn artiste.
So if you're finding crocheting as frustrating as, say, golf or brain surgery, and want to know what's going wrong, order this book immediately! You'll be glad you did!
Came on time. Well packaged. Great book.
