I opened up each of the four Craft Tree Crochet books by Amy Palmer with low expectations; after all each of the books are only around 30 pages each, so I imagined they'd be light on content but I was pleasantly surprised with the range of projects inside.
I've never been too big a fan of amigurumi but I'll admit some of the creatures were adorable, with my favourite being the ever-so-sweet Polar Lucibear!
From the amigurumi, I moved onto Easy Crocheted Accessories and have since barely put the book down. In fact, while the patterns are simple, they're fun to make and somewhat addictive – I've been hooking up accessories at a rate of knots!
Crocheted Afghans is filled with blankets, afghans and throws, which will definitely make your house a great deal more homely. I'm still torn but I think my favourite (possibly just for the name) was the Magic Carpet Blanket which fills my head with dreams of Arabian adventures. If you've the space for them, then I heartily recommend making all ten of the projects inside.
While hubby might be regretting ever leaving me alone with these booklets, I can definitely say that they were great additions to my bookshelf and I'll be making almost everything from all four!
A big thumbs up from me!
