More practical than Knitorama

I purchased "Hookorama" and its companion book, Knitorama: 25 Great & Glam Things to Knit, at the same time, and "Hookorama" is by far my favourite of the two. Like "Knitorama", "Hookorama" is filled with a wide array of exciting craft projects, but unlike its predecessor, many of these projects are both imaginative and practical, for example a hot-water bottle cover that looks like a sheep; a bag that looks like a pineapple and a "science experiment" sweater, complete with burn holes. The other projects that are included in this book are: *a fig leaf bikini; *a toy snake and crocheted fruit and flowers; *a tea set; *a daisy fascinator; *a "popcorn" hat; *a bib/collar thing; *flip-top mittens; *a tie; *suit-case decorations; *a saucepan handle cover and coasters; *a hula-hoop cover; *a mask; *a parasol and lacy gloves; *a wig; *spats; *a lacy top; *knee warmers; *a beaded choker and glasses chain; *a lamp-shade cover; *a book cover; and *a crocheted candle with moths. I have already crocheted the sheep hot-water bottle cover and I found the instructions simple to follow. There are basic how-to instructions at the start of the book for crochet novices (these include step-by-step photographs and are very clear) and I would say that many of the patterns in this book would be suitable for beginners. The target audience for this book is clearly teens and young adults and unlike some other books that are aimed at this demographic, Rachel Matthews has succeeded in producing a series of patterns that young adults would actually be interested in making (I'm 26 and love the patterns in this book). I recommend this book to any young crocheters who are looking for something different to make or to anyone who possesses the requisite imagination to realize that a crocheted candle is not completely useless.
