This is the PERFECT hostess gift to give to a crocheter who already knows everything and has everything. I've been crafting for over 40 years now, but have read and used this book with delight.

Behind the somewhat dull and dusted title of "compendium" hides a wonderful introduction to 16 different crochet techniques: bead crochet, broomstick lace, doilies, double-ended crochet, felting, filet crochet, crochet with fleece, mosaic crochet, hairpin lace, intarsia, slip-stitch, crochet socks, symbol crochet, tunisian, waffle-weave, and wiggly crochet. I know several of those techniques, and others I have heard of, some tried - some didn't dare trying - some just "not my style", and lastly some that I never heard of or thought about (like crochet with fleece ?!). Wow, is this book good for all of that!

The explanations are clear and concise, and each technique comes with a project suggestion that's just right to try it out, but still turning into a useful project. A great "compendium" to go to if you're looking for inspiration, of if you are in the exploration mood but don't want to commit to too much.

Also, I don't want to buy a whole book about "wiggly crochet" until I try it out, and here is the opportunity. Or, hairpin lace has been on my try-out list for a long time, and the samples suggested in this chapter have been just too much to resist to finally do it (make a beautiful flowery square using basic hairpin lace!).

Yes, it's a 5-star, and make sure to get a copy for yourself before you buy one as a gift.
