On my trip to this year's Knit and Crochet Show in Manchester New Hampshire, I got the chance to meet Laurinda Reddig - and she quickly went from acquaintance to friend... And then I realized that she was the author of the book that was next on my crochet wishlist! Reversible Color Crochet promises to teach a new technique to create completely reversible color work - and it delivers!

Laurinda's work first caught my eye - and they eye of many! - when she won the CGOA 2011 People's Choice Award and 1st place in Afghans with her reversible Mystery Machine blanket! A true work of crochet art and skill.
And then she blew us all away again, winning the Grand Prize in 2012 with her reversible vest! While in Manchester, I got a chance to see the vest first hand, and it's even more beautiful in person.
So you can imagine how excited I was to learn her techniques! I got a chance to learn the most basic one during a Make & Take at the conference, but that was just the start. Now I have the book, and it's everything I'd hoped!
Reversible Color Crochet includes the entire collection of clever color changing techniques that Laurinda has invented, as well as 28 different blocks, and 10 different afghan patterns! There are super cute baby and kid blankets, but also gorgeous quilt-inspired blankets worthy of instant heirloom status.
I love the way Laurinda's mind works, and chatting with her, her excitement for crochet is contagious! I know that her techniques are going to revolutionize color changes in crochet - this is a fantastic spin on the usual methods for tapestry type crochet, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
