crocheting in Spain
Ganchillo Facil is a magazine that hit newsstands about two weeks ago. It includes a how to DVD, a booklet with 5 patterns, two balls of yarn and a hook. Note the price it is only 1 Euro. My husband informs me that there are always collections of such magazines popping up in Spain, number two will be more expensive. Each magazine includes a ball of yarn, and a pattern of an afghan square to use up the yarn in each issue. At the end of the series you should know how to crochet AND have an afghan. Plus there are other patterns in the magazine.
I think that this is a brillant idea! Even though the yarn is not the best, I think that this sort of thing can bring crafting into the lives of many other people! I have also spotted a cross stitch series, and a figure painting series. Go Spain. :)
