Crocheting Book Review

 Recently I checked out this book
from the library,
"Crochet with Color"
by Kazuko Ryokai.
I really love the projects 
and couldn't wait to get started!

Then I realized that all the patterns
were in chart form only.
I've never tried to use a chart pattern before,
so I was a little lost at first! 
But I finally figured it out,
and now I really like using charts.
I'm so glad I didn't give up!
 I made a number of things,
including this lacy purple collar.
I also made wristlets to match,
but didn't get a pic of those yet.
 Then I tried this smaller collar in blues.
Both patterns were very fun to do,
and I would definitely recommend this book
if you don't mind using charts.
Bye for now!

Thanks Jenny!
I'm glad you like them, I haven't really thought about selling them.
But I could make one for you if you would like! :)
