As a recent self-taught crocheter, this book is a great one to have in your collection. The photos are beautiful, as Nicki has chosen a color pallette that makes you want to try the project. She rates her wide variety of projects as 'beginner', 'improver' and 'enthusiast'. I love doing small projects that show success sooner rather than later, and there are plenty here. Although I bought it for the jar toppers on the cover, I have already made the mug warmer, toy ball[baby bouncers] for babies(actually made a bowlful for decor purposes),egg cozies, and now will do washcloths and teddybears! Fun and great teaching book for crochet.
