Hi again, This week, in a bid to encourage these lingering snow banks to go away, I picked through my pile of giveaway books and chose the spring-iest book I could find. Say hello to Cute & Easy Crochet, by Nicki Trench. [caption id="attachment_4095" align="aligncenter" width="243" caption="Image: Cico Books (cicobooks.com)"] [/caption] I'm a big fan of books that teach you a new skill and then give you projects to practise with, and this is just such a book. It's full of how-tos (with illustrations and explanations), followed by a host of attractive projects, everything from egg cozies and fingerless gloves to afghans and handbags. Best of all, the projects don't just look like things you could make, they look like things you would make – and enjoy. For your chance to win, leave ONE comment on this post telling me something you're looking forward to this spring. Don't forget to provide your email address when you're signing in to leave your comment. Comments will be open until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 3; I'll post a winner here on Monday, April 4. Good luck!
