    So I got all excited when I saw this book at my library 'cause I crochet and would like to work on my knitting Unfortunately there wasn't a single knit project that I would want to make In my opinion these projects kind of feed the bad reputation knitters and crocheters get for lacking taste and style Also some of them are fantastically impractical like the knitted cupcakes Perhaps I'm just a snooty biz natch but who would decorate with knitted cupcakes?Another strike against the book is that there only six crochet patterns Out of thirty Perhaps I'm just biased but if you're going to say knit and crochet the balance between the two should be even Maybe not 50 50 but 65 35 at the least Also perhaps an indication of which patterns are knit or crochet in the contents or the index so those of us with no interest in knittingcrocheting can skip right to what we want to look atThe only advantage I see to this book is that the author actually suggests using your scraps I keep running into these projects called like Scrap Bag and Scrap Throw and then the pattern is all Oh you need a skein of each of these colors and two skeins of this one How is that a scrap project? Radford not only includes projects that you could use scraps for but says things like I went digging in my leftovers to see what kind of funky yarns I could use for this You should do the same So I gave it an extra star No I didn't But I thought about it

    I was really looking forward to this book I'm always looking for one skein projects Unfortunately while some were cute none were anything I'd be interested in making for myself or anyone else I know

    As an avid crocheter who cannot knit at all one of my biggest pet peeves when looking for new patterns is when a book or pattern collections says it has x number of projects to knit and crochet Invariably the vast majority of patterns are knitting and there is no uick and easy way to know how many are crochet until you look at every single pattern So this book purports to have 30 uick Projects to Knit and Crochet In fact it has 23 to knit and 7 to crochet of the 7 crochet patterns there was only one I found really interesting a cotton bath mat At different times in my life I have seen patterns written for both forms of needlework I completely understand that not every pattern can be adapted to both forms successfully or even appropriately but a lot of the patterns in this book and these kinds of books in general could fairly easily have both forms included when the writer compiler editor is skilled in both forms

    I'm not 100% certain I agree with the one skein definition here since in at least one case she's actually using one of those gigantic cone things that are roughly the size of a zip code There are however at least three projects I might want to try here and another three or four that I find intriguing but are probably beyond my skill level at this point I really like the purses she has though and I find the pom pom scarf very cute

    The patterns were impractical and it was severely lacking in crochet patterns The only pattern I might have worked up was the tub mat but there's no way it would only take one skein of peaches and cream yarn

    Ugh why subtitle your book 30 uick projects for knit and crochet when in truth it's 27 knitted projects and three boring ugly crochet projects a boring hat an ugly scarf and some clutch bag variations This is why I don't buy yarn books and why most yarn stores are simply disappointing
