Overview

Crochet lovers will embrace Hooked for Life: Adventures of a Crochet Zealot, a book that lovingly and humorously explores the craft of crochet and is written by a true crochet zealot.

Mary Beth Temple, a well-known author in the crafting world and a self-admitted crochet junkie, gives an insider's look at what makes real crocheters tick and laugh with a number of humorous essays.

Excerpt from the book:

"Just the other day I uttered a phrase that stopped traffic in my household, a phrase I never in a million years thought I would utter. I was sorting through yet another box of yarn that appeared as if by magic, trying to lower the square footage of wool that is all over my living room, and in frustration I yelled out "I have too much yarn!" You could hear crickets chirping in the aftermath--my daughter looked at me as if I had three heads, even the dog cocked her head and started to slink slowly away from the crazy woman. Did I really say I had too much yarn? Was I sick with fever?"

This book is hilarious and speaks to the crocheters soul! Mrs. Temple starts with the history of crochet (or lack thereof) and keeps on running! Her stories of too much yarn are almost daily echos of my own life. I wish there were different patterns in the book or at least color pictures. She's a heartwarming author that truly understands what it's like to be a crocheter in a knitter's world!
