English too, but the foreign language books are harder to find I suppose.
I've decided to try the charts for the patterns in Spanish language books, so I'd read about this online store called Crochet Style etc./Creative Yarn Source over at Crochetville & thought I'd try it out. I've been really busy and uninspired lately without time to crochet, as a result I've been a little crankier than usual, so I thought I'd look for outside inspiration by way of a new book :)
I'd been wanting to get the Pineapple Lace Stitch Doily book by Nihon Vogue too, so I bought one Japanese crochet book and 2 Spanish booklets- Muestras y Motivas Especial Puntillas 5 originales y clásicas, and Especial Paños No. 12.
This Puntillas 5 one is all borders, so hopefully I can use this one to get away with not crocheting an entire thread tablecloth for my mom.
Then this Paños No. 12 looks like it's mainly doilies. Its funny because I think they're really pretty, but never get around to making them. Eventually, I guess.
I'll try to remember to report back when I get them, and their ease of use, etc. By the way, there's an interesting selection of yarns & threads to try too, but I really have to get through more of my stash before buying more!
