Paging through this ebook was like a trip down memory lane. Some of the patterns, especially the collars, are throwbacks to an earlier time. While I don't see myself ever needing to make a doily, I will be referring to this books extensive selection of edging patterns for finishing touches to sweaters and afghans. A keeper!

I really enjoyed this collection of patterns. I have not ventured into crocheting with thread, but the patterns here are very inspiring. There is a good Table of Contents, pictures are clear, and help tell where the pattern will lead me. I do believe that the doily patterns they include will bring back memories of Grandma's house - Grandma wasnt able to share her crochet talent with me, but this book makes it possible.
This book does assume that you have some knowledge of crocheting - and I will add, when I get lost, I find youtube to be a very helpful teaching tool, but these patterns in one book is wonderful.
I also appreciated the link included on the last page for more patterns.
