Mailbox Monday (4/1/13)

Welcome back to MariReads, Mailbox Monday-ers!

It has been quite awhile since I last hosted the Mailbox Monday Blog Tour. Two years ago, I believe. I had a great time hosting then, and am excited to be doing it again for all of you this month.

For those of you who may not be familiar with the meme, here is what it is all about:

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. It was started by Marcia, previously of The Printed Page and is now a Blog Tour, hosted by a different book blog each month.

This week's books for me were fiber related. Yay! I love pattern books with beautiful photos of knitted/crocheted items. I am excited to cast on a new project from both of these books:

More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson (NetGalley)

Crochet One-Skein Wonders by (NetGalley)

So, what did you get this past week? Enquiring minds would like to know.

Happy Reading!

  1. I like the look of your fabric books! Have fun.
    Thank you for hosting in April. :-)

  2. Hi Mari,

    I used to knit and crochet avidly, although these days I do little of either, despite having cupboards full of wool all ready to go.

    I know what the problem is, blogging is taking over so much of my limited free time, that I don't get to fit anything else in. I have been trying hard to redress the balance a little and seeing your great books this week will hopefully give me more of incentive to do it sooner rather than later.

    Thanks for agreeing to host this great meme in April and enjoy your books this week.


    1. I always end up taking breaks from it too. I have some projects in the works, though, for new babies and brides. :)
      Finding a balance is hard. My reading and blogging is what suffers on my end.

  3. Thank you for hosting Mari! I'm not a very good knitter (so slow) but I love some of those hats! Just right for winter.

  4. I want to learn how to crochet this year. I can do basic knitting and would like to learn something new in that regard as well. Thanks for hosting MM this month. Happy April!!

  5. I always think I should re-learn how to knit and crochet (it's probably been 30 years or more) but then I realize that that would cut into my reading time. ;-)

  6. More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts looks great - I love the hat on the cover!

  7. Isn't it great the Netgalley has pattern books?! They look great. Thanks for hosting in April!

  8. Enjoy your reads! And thanks for hosting....

  9. I envy people who can knit and crochet because I can't do either! Maybe once I retire I'll set myself to learning. Enjoy your new craft books.

  10. Have fun knitting! Wish I knew how!

  11. I can do basic knitting and crocheting but I am not very good at it. I envy those who can make wonderful handmade items! I think it is great that Netgalley offers pattern books. I hope they are both winners! Thanks for hosting MM!

  12. I love crafting books, and those look great. Thanks for hosting!

  13. Great books! I love that little girl's hat on the first book. Too cute! Will you make that? =O)

    Have a great week and thanks for hosting!

  14. Could'nt get to your linky. Following the blogs though.

    1. Link is fixed. :) Thanks for letting me know.
