Some more craft books . . . / Mas libros de manualidades








Hello, hello ! 
Today I want to share with you the last package I got in the mail. My birthday was last month and part of my present  have been this 3 craft books. 

Hola !! 
Hoy quiero compartir con vosotras el ultimo paquete que recibí en el correo. Mi cumpleaños fue el mes pasado y parte de mi regalo fueron estos 3 libros. 





The first book is The Crochet Answer Book by Edie Eckman. I really wanted to have a crochet reference book and after reading lots of opinions of other buyers I finally chose this one. It is unbelievably small, but I'm very happy with it as it really is a good reference book. El primer libro es The Crochet Answer Book (El Libro de Respuestas sobre Ganchillo más o menos sería la traducción) de Edie Eckman. Quería tener un libro de referencia de ganchillo y después de leer muchas opiniones de otras lectoras finalmente me decante por este. Es increíblemente pequeño pero estoy muy contenta de haberlo comprado ya que es muy buena fuente de referencia. 













The second book is Stitch by Cath Kidston which I chose as I wanted to have some of her classic designs in the form of crosstitch charts. I bought the smaller version of the book as the content is the same as the standard version but the price is half. 

El segundo libro (Stitch) es este de Cath Kidston, me decante por este porque queria tener algunos de los gráficos en punto de cruz, de sus diseños clásicos. Me compre la versión mas pequeña en tamaño porque era la mitad de precio que el libro 'normal' y el contenido es el mismo. 


The third book is Crochet Borders, again by Edie Eckman . I really needed a book like this as I have to put borders on to this and this blanket when they are finished. I like the book as it has the written pattern for each border, the graph and also a picture. 

El tercer libro es Crochet Borders (Bordes de Ganchillo), de nuevo de Edie Eckman. Necesitaba un libro como este ya que tengo que poner remates a esta y esta manta cuando las termine. Me gusta el libro porque tiene para cada diseño el patrón escrito, el grafico y la foto. 

The mug in the picture below is another of my presents, Cath Kidston mugs (a set of 4) that I have been wanting for a loooong time, but that I considered more of a treat than a 'real' need now I use the box where they came for my current crochet project. . . 

La taza que veis abajo es otro de mis regalos, tazas de Cath Kidston (un juego de 4) que he querido durante muuucho tiempo, pero que consideraba mas un capricho que una necesidad. Ahora uso la caja donde venían para guardar el proyecto de ganchillo con el que estoy en esos momentos.



Some crochet I have been doing lately, just doing a little progress in this blanket for the Stash-Buster Challenge 2013. 

Aqui algo de ganchillo que estado haciendo últimamente, solo he progresado un poquito en esta manta para el Reto Fuera-Lanas 2013.

Some granny flowers here. I have progressed a couple or three rows, I will probably show the progress soon. 

Algunas flores para la manta. He progresado un par de lineas o tres, probablemente enseñare el progreso pronto.





Have a nice week !!

Que tengáis una buena semana !!

  2. I love your crochet flowers. The mugs are so pretty. I have the border book though I haven't used it yet. You are really making me want to crochet. I will have to go out and get some yarn soon for a new blanket. Can't wait to see your blankets with borders!

  7. Lovely flowers! The border book looks really interesting. I might have to order a copy :) Thank you for saying that it has charts too - that's really interesting for me to know because I prefer to work from charts. Elisabeth x
