100 flowers to knit & crochet: Our June Book of the Month

Yes, I know the title does not have any caps, neither does the front cover of the book.  I am going with the presentation the author and editors have given us…  I digress…

We introduced this book to our customers two months ago, and it has demanded our Book of the Month status.  This is the first chance I have had to really look at it.  It has walked out the door within days, and we have increased our stocks to meet demand.  What has really impressed us is the number of men who have bought it as a gift or found it for their partner to purchase.  Nice one guys!

I am more than a little biased, this lovely book of 100 flowers to knit and crochet was always going to be a winner for me.  More flowers that defy my ability to kill even cactii.  As with all books that we recommend, instructions are clear and concise, with yarn requirements included.  Projects are available for beginners and more advanced crafters, photography is beautiful and you have an object you can use at the end.  My personal favourites are numbers 68 Pelargoniam and 28 Lavender, they have a vibrance and delicacy that is stunning.  There are even some fruit and vegetables,  not sure where I would use them, but the funky little bunch of radishes are a hoot. 

Designer and author Lesley Stanfield has done a wonderful job, she has a rapidly growing fan base amongst our staff and customers.  100 flowers to knit & crochet is available now, online and instore for $40.00.

    Not sure how a review of a book on embellishment has rated on a beauty/cosmetics site but thank you so much to all of you who voted.
