One of my fave Christmas presents was one I found myself, ordered from Kalahari.net and then told my mom she had to give to me!
100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet by Lesley Stanfield is giving me lots of joy as I work my way through the gorgeous blooms!
[And so are the beautiful offcuts of the cotton I am crocheting with!]Lesley Stanfield has authored a number of books on knitting and crochet, including 150 Knitted Trims. She is a long-time hand knitting designer and has been the knitting editor at Woman and Family Circle magazines.In March, her latest book, '75 Butterflies, Bees, Birds and Other Creatures to Knit and Crochet' will be released. I think I see a Mother's Day or early Birthday present coming up. I'll have to order one for myself!
