New Japanese Crochet Books

Over the last few years I’ve acquired a love for Japanese* crochet books. I love the design style, but can’t read any of it. The charts and photos are what make it possible for me to follow the patterns, those are universal. After hours of staring at the charts in the first book I bought I managed to decipher the most import symbols for “rows” and “stitches”. In other words where it says this thing is so many stitches across and so many rows high. I can follow that, which is very helpful.

Anyway, I had some gift money and bought 4 new books with it. I’m very excited! 🙂

* I’ll admit right here, that I think they’re Japanese, but if they were Korean, or Chinese, I really wouldn’t know the difference. I’m an ignorant American in this way.

Handmade Yarn

Homespun yarn from Janet. I needed to wind it from a hank into a ball. It’s huge. 🙂
