Thanks for the input. I thumbed through Happy Hooker and didn't really like it. I liked one of the patterns in it, and that one is free online which I've made before. I can learn pretty good with the diagrams I find online about crochet which is why I thought it would be good to have teach yourself visually, because it has a lot of color pictures in there of how to do things. But I suppose when I go check out these books I'll go read through HH too
I've never heard of that DVD before. I wonder if my library has a copy...hmm, something to think about. No... it doesn't. Darn it. I'll think about it, but I'd rather go physically buy it from the store. I don't think we have an AC Moore.
My library has the crochet answer book but two copies are checked out, so I'll wait until they are turned in and just check the book out instead of buying it for now.
