Stitch n Bitch Crochet Book Excerpt:

The New York Times–bestselling author of Stitch ’n Bitch conquers crochet with forty original patterns in her sassy, sexy, signature style—fully illustrated. Stitch ’n Bitch Crochet is chock-full of instruction, inspiration, and to-die-for designs, from lacy, sexy summer tops to chic, cozy sweaters, chunky, funky hats, and colorfully crafty afghans. And, as Debbie Stoller demonstrates with her easy-to-follow instructions, it all starts with the simple act of wrapping a hook around a strand of yarn. Full of color photographs and instructional illustrations, Stitch ’n Bitch Crochet is the perfect primer on knitting’s sister craft—from tools and uses for the different gauges to all the cool yarns available. She also takes you through basic techniques and stitch patterns including the chain stitch, picot, flowers, filet crochet, changing yarns, and finishing. Then come forty fabulous projects for everyone from beginners to experienced crocheters: A pom-pom capelet, a retro clutch purse, an “Anarchy Irony Hat,” an “Orange You Glad Bag,” a “Doris Daymat,” a beach-ready bikini, animal iPod cozies, a kid’s sock monkey afghan, and so much more! These are definitely not your grandma’s doilies.

Cult Media Fandom and Textiles Book Excerpt:

This book is the first to explore handicrafting practiced by media fans, their online fan communities and the multiple meanings they create. Based on in-depth ethnographic research into fans on the online social network for knitters, crocheters and crafters, Ravelry, Brigid Cherry explores textile craft by fans as both an artistic practice and transformative fan work. Including case studies of projects inspired by Doctor Who, True Blood, Firefly, Harry Potter, Sherlock and steampunk, the book engages with many forms of fan production, including fan art, fan fiction and cosplay. Fans of popular films and TV shows are increasingly engaging with textile crafts as a way of reworking, reimagining and engaging with cult media texts. Proving a global phenomenon amongst fan cultures in the digital media sphere, traditional film and TV audiences are forging their fan identities and participating in wider fan communities in innovative ways through online craft forums and blogs that showcase their knitting, crochet, spinning and dyeing projects. Exploring key debates from textile and media theory, surrounding gender, domesticity, the culture industries, audiences and fan culture, this book is essential reading for students of textiles, media studies, fashion, cultural and gender studies.

In Uncommon Crochet, designer Julie Armstrong Holetz applies new ideas and unconventional materials--like wire, raffia, jute, sisal, recycled belts, fabric strips, and felted beads--to twenty-five patterns for bins, baskets, totes, handbags, clutches, jewelry, and more. Step-by-step instructions, detailed how-to photographs, and essential advice about creativity, design, and experimentation encourage you to play with fiber, add funky embellishments, and use your creative spirit to customize any pattern--even the ones in this book! From practical containers like Red's Goodie Basket (a stylish home for your WIP--works in progress) and Vintage Satchel (a sturdy retro messenger bag) to just plain fun projects like Petite Fleur Vases (tiny bud vases that hold water) and Sushi (crocheted California rolls, anyone?), Uncommon Crochet offers fresh twists on old-school techniques that turn simple projects into gift-worthy creations.
