Crochet Home book review

Crochet is so popular at the moment. It just seems to be getting bigger and bigger. We talked about our own experiences a couple of weeks ago. This very inspiring book is tempting us to get our hooks out with all the joyful little projects it contains.

There are small projects to make in a weekend like these mug cosies mug cosies

We are a bit obsessed with the possibilities for re-cycling jam jars at the moment and these covers are great.
