Japanese Crochet books!

I figured I better hurry up and post a picture of the crochet books I got from yesasia the other day. I've looked through them several times and picked out the first ten things I want to make! But decided I better try and finished a few started projects first. These are the books I got:

They are each super awesome!!! I want to make everything in them and I also want to buy MORE! I guess I can't be greedy, but these Japanese crochet books are the best crochet books I've ever seen! Now I wish I could read Japanese and buy Japanese yarn. Some of the things I make don't look as good as the pictures because I don't have the same yarn and I can't read what yarn to use. I could go to the yarn shop and get nice yarn, but then I'd have to spend a lot.

Well tonight my husband and a few other bands are paying music at Starbucks. That means I get to sit and crochet while I listen! It's a tradition now and I look forward to it. Especially because school is starting again and I don't have any more free time really. (I just spent 13 hours there yesterday trying to get my classroom ready!)
