The Crochet Liberation Front would like to award the author, Betty Hechtman for setting our picot free with her book, Hooked on Murder.
First of all I wish to applaude her for making us our own mystery novel with crochet playing an integral role. I have to admit being a mystery lover I've been a wee bit jealous of all the pointy stick action.
As far as books go, I have to say it's not a bad read, it's good light reading, and I really enjoyed getting to know the main character Molly Pink. I found myself wanting to help ease her frustration and confidence as she learned to crochet...
I see a huge potential for the series to mature and bloom, as will Molly's crochet skills.
But hey we hookers got a murder mystery, and an author who cares enough about hooks to give us some juicy sleuthing! YAY!
Betty Hechtman you are duly awarded the Set My Picot Free Award for liberating the hook from literary oppression!
(For the record this group started in July 2007, the book came out in 2008, LOL...no I didn't start the group because of the book...and yes I've been asked that question :) LOL)
ABOUT THE CLF
- Fearless Leader of the CLF
- Everywhere, No where
- I started the CLF as a joke on Ravelry, back in July of 2007. The joke was on me, we're a real group, that seeks to liberate ourselves from stereo types about our craft and ourselves. Other than being called "Fearless Leader", I'm a designer, mother, editor, wife, hand spinner, yarn addict, incessant reader, and over all geek in the coolest of geeky ways.
