I got this book from the library, the other day. I'm going to attempt to teach myself how to crochet. I have attempted this several times in the past, already. This time I'll take it seriously and really try to learn. I'd love to make some doll clothes or some adorable little amigurumis some day. I need to find out what a good starting size is for a crochet hook, a standard size. Wish me luck!
