"Waiting On" Wednesday 82

Yummi' Gurumi by Christen Haden and Mariarosa Sala

Yummi 'Gurumi: Over 60 Gourmet Crochet Treats to Make from Christen Haden and Mariarosa Sala is a "cookbook" for the hottest trend in the yarn craft world: crocheting tasty treats that look good enough to eat!

Yummi 'Gurumi features 20 "recipes" to guide crafters--from the hairnet set to the hipster jet set--through this evolutionary next step in the craft craze known worldwide as amigurumi--the Japanese word for knitting and crocheting cute, little animals and objects.

With techniques easy enough for novices yet adaptable to keep expert crocheters interested, each of the delectable dishes in Yummi 'Gurumi takes less than an hour or two to create. Each design is explained with stitch guides, clear patterns, and easy-to-follow instructions.

And perhaps the best part of Yummi 'Gurumi--no calories!

Released July 13th 2010

I'm totally taken with the cover photo of the amigurumi sushi. I'll have to check it out to see if it's similar to Tasty Crochet or maybe they explore other foods. Either way it's exciting to see more amigurumi books coming out!

What can't you wait for to be released?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!
