Summer time crochet - My Crochet Doll

I bought Isabelle Kessdjian's "My Crochet Doll" book for myself last Christmas (2013) and over the Australian summer holidays I made my own doll.  I've admired Isabelle for a long time and I read her blog daily.  This book was published initially in French and was released in English late 2013


Isn't she cute!!

What books are in your collection

Here are just a few of my crochet books.  

I've been collecting these books over the last 5 years in order to improve my skill set.  Some of them I have purchased, some have been gifts from my lovely husband and others, like my edition of Weldons Encyclopedia of Needlework and my copy of D.M.C Library 'Crochet Work VIth Series' were given to me by people who know how much I would appreciate them. 

My favourite books currently are:
