Editorial Reviews

Review

Quick & Easy Crochet, November/December 2006

“Truly a gift book filled with stories for the legions of men and women who crochet.”

California BookWatch, November 2006

“Not the usual ‘how to crochet’ guide, but a survey of insights and stories revolving around crocheter experiences.”



Crochet World, April 2007

“This is truly a gift book filled with stories for the legions of men and women who crochet.”

From the Inside Flap

How people came to crochet, what they’ve made of it, what memories it has stitched into their lives, and what moments of insight and simple pleasure it’s brought them are the stories told in Hooked: A Crocheter’s Stash of Wit and Wisdom, a tribute to the age-old art, embellished with charming illustrations from vintage pattern booklets, reminding readers that with every chain a story begins. 
 
Kari Cornell, editor of For the Love of Knitting: A Celebration of the Knitter’s Art and Knitting Yarns and Spinning Tails: A Knitter’s Stash of Wit and Wisdom, collects musings on what it means to crochet from writers such as Lily Chin, Jennifer Hansen, Karen Searle, Gwen Blakely Kinsler, Lela Nargi, Kay Dorn, Nilda Mesa, Deborah Robson, Annie Modesitt, and Linda Permann.

Finally! A book (not a book of patterns, but a reading book!) about crochet! Some publisher actually listened. Being a lifelong crocheter this book was refreshing, wonderful essays from women who were not biased towards the art of crochet. A quick read but worth every penny. Hookers Unite!

I bought this book because I am mentioned in it by one of the essay writers --- one of my crochet students. When I began to read the other essays, I was even more pleased to have the collection. It's really a nice little book to pick up and read as time permits.

Books on crocheting that are not pattern or technique books are rare. This one, full of short essays and stories about crocheting is a nice connection to others who practice or craft.

Crocheters tell what the craft means to them. Interesting because I know some of the writers, but note that

it has no patterns or instructional material. Title might imply that it contains tips, but it is really simply

essays. Not sensational.

I haven't read the whole book,yet. So I can't really rate it yet. I'm really more into doing the craft, rather than reading about it.
