Looked good, but I don't think that it really comes off all the well. I haven't tried any of them yet. They all seem too hard. Perhaps a more expereienced hooker would like this book.

Throughout my childhood I’d seen my mother do needlework and learned from her by example. I can’t remember exactly why I was home from school that week. I think I might have had the mumps, or was it after I had my tonsils out. Whatever. I wasn’t allowed to go outside and ride my bike, climb trees or pet the neighbor’s pony. I’d read all the books I had at home. I was bored to tears and probably so ...more
