More info and other reviews

Sandra Eng is a crochet genius who has written her own awesome book, Crochet Kaleidoscope, so I was chuffed to read her review of my book. You can read it here.

Jane aka Queen Babs is a super force of positivity and goodwill.  She has written some beautiful words about my book on Instagram.

Love Dream Hope . This image stopped me in my tracks when I was beta reading Shelley’s @spncushions new book Granny Square Flair. Such beautiful words to go with this beautiful colourful crochet blanket. . I was honoured to be asked to make a square, read her book and give feedback. Over the years I’ve learnt so much from Shelley and benefited from how ‘scientific’ she is about how things work in the world of crochet. As a beginner that and her free ebook “More Than a Granny” answered many questions for me. Other @spincushions squares taught me design and stitch ideas. . Granny Square Flair is her first print book and I can’t believe she’s made it in seperate US and UK versions. I have the US one so I don’t have to convert the patterns in my mind as I go. Brilliant! . This book delivers in a big way. There’s 50 granny square patterns, yes 50, and they all match in size so you can mix and match in a project. Plus they vary from beginner, intermediate to advanced so all levels can jump in. . You can take the patterns and create scarves, blankets, cushions and more and Shelley guides you through how to do just that or if you need more help first, you can choose from the Project section (that’s where this blanket comes from). . This is not a “how to crochet” book, it’s how to crochet seamlessly, beautifully and with lots of ideas at your fingertips. . You can get more details and pre-orders via Shelley’s link so pop over for a look. . I have even more to share so I will save that for my next post! . I love a granny square, Jane, Aka Queen Babs ???????? . . #grannysquareflairbook #grannysquare #crochet #crocheteveryday #stitchandhustle #craftastherapy #crochetaddict #crochetersofinstagram #crochetgirlgang #crochetlove #Createmakeshare #Creativehappylife #Makersgonnamake #Craftsposure #celebratinghandmade #inspiration #handmade #technicolourcrafters #australiancrochetcommunity #instacrochet

Granny Square Flair by Shelley Husband

Do you love the yarn I used for the Dahlia scarf?  Well the colour way was designed by Kirsten Ballering (also known as Haakmaarraak) and she has very kindly written a lovely review of the book here.

Lynda aka Home Lea Lass has written a lovely review you can read here and also taken one of the squares on a super chunky journey!

I have loved Sarah (Annaboo’s House) and her work in the world of crochet.  She’s written a couple of great books and I was super cuffed to read her lovely review of my book here.

Check back soon for more reviews as I know there are more on the way!  So exciting.
